I’ve told you before about Macoy. He grew up in an orphanage in Lima, Peru because his mother was too poor to support him and his brothers, and she worked as a live-in maid, so she couldn’t take care of them. Of his generation of 87 young people, he is the only one to have gone on to university and one of only 4 who graduated from high school. All of the people around him were poor. None had an education. All were working at subsistence jobs. Most went to church.

mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:#606060">Macoy asked himself, does the church have anything to say about poverty, misery and hopelessness, other than the consolation of heaven “in the sweet bye and bye”?&nbsp; Why, in the Christian American hemisphere, is there so much injustice, inequality, and despair? Does Christian faith mean anything at all in this life? Does it have anything to say about economics, politics, refugees, the environment, discrimination? His church had taught him NO.<br> <br> When as a child he would show up hungry at church, they would tell him it was God’s will for him to be poor. When the country was being torn apart by a vicious civil war, the church had nothing to say except that it was “of the world” and should be ignored by Christians. When the girls in his youth group got pregnant (a high percentage), they were expelled from the group and from the church. He lost the girl he loved because the pastor forbad her to continue seeing him when he moved to a different church.&nbsp;<br> <br> Macoy is an example of why the <em><span style="font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Universidad</span></em> <em><span style="font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Bíblica</span></em> <em><span style="font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Latinoamericana</span></em> is still vitally needed in Latin America. As he read the Gospels, he saw a different Jesus: one who got angry at injustice, who built community rather than destroying it, who wasn’t afraid of hard questions and who loved the outsider and the sinner. He began to see a Jesus who didn’t teach conformity but who transformed people and empowered them to make changes in their lives. So he wrote his thesis with a complete analysis of the church school education in his neighborhood and proposals for change.<br> <br> His thesis focuses on Christian education for the adolescents in the area where he grew up and has pastored.&nbsp; In 85 pages, he offers new teaching methods that encourage creative, analytical thinking, develop self-initiative, and engage Christian faith with the real problems the teens are facing. Then, he expands their narrow view of spirituality to embrace all of life, &nbsp;including our relationship with God, with ourselves, with one another, and with the creation. It calls us to celebrate life on this earth in all its fullness as we see God present all around us and calling us to transform our reality with God’s power. </span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;

No one would deny the need for a pastor to study the Bible, preaching, Christian education, theology, etc. But the world is in crisis, and somehow those studies need to prepare a pastor to take leadership to help the church respond to migrations, climate change, despair, injustice, desperate poverty, and diversity of cultures, religions, values. We must teach our seminarians to make the connections between profound biblical truths and human realities, to see how God is working in the world, so that they can show those connections to their churches.</span><span style="font-size:11.5pt;line-height:125%; font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; color:#606060"><br> &nbsp;<br> </span><span style="font-size:10.5pt;line-height:125%;font-family: &quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; color:#606060">We affirmed the central importance of a holistic spirituality: a profound personal relationship with a God who is Lord of all the earth, who cares about people’s health, material well being, relationships with others, harmony among different groups, and the creation. Nothing new for American Baptists, but often we fall short of living out that holistic vision.</span><span style="font-size:11.5pt;line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:#606060"><br> &nbsp;<br> </span><span style="font-size:10.5pt;line-height:125%;font-family: &quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; color:#606060">A pastor, we decided, must first and foremost be a person who loves God. Several seminaries take this seriously by offering courses in spirituality and self-care, others in conflict resolution skills. Some teach non-hierarchical models of leadership, urgently needed in this region of the world where pastors are declaring themselves “apostles” and “prophets” with absolute control over their congregations. Parallel to this are Baptist principles of the priesthood of all believers and soul freedom. We &nbsp;talked about the need to support women in ministry.</span><span style="font-size: 11.5pt;line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:#606060"><br> &nbsp;<br> </span><span style="font-size:10.5pt;line-height:125%;font-family: &quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; color:#606060">A number of seminaries are recognizing that the traditional model of seminarians living on campus for 3-4 years as full time students is no longer viable. They are offering online courses, distance courses with learning modules, and in many cases, professors who travel to where the students are and meet with them evenings and weekends. In Bolivia, the seminary extension program provides a tablet to each student with the study materials as text, as video, and as spoken word. The farmer can listen to his text while he plows and the artist while she weaves.</span><span style="font-size:11.5pt;line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;

second “cena política” (political dinner). You will remember that in the first conversation, we heard horrifying accounts of the rampant violence in the countries represented.<br> &nbsp;<br> The purpose of our second conversation was to develop a theological framework that would help us to respond positively to the situations of violence and death that we had described. In what ways is God present and how do we understand the action of God within our reality? What does Christian faith have to do with or say to this culture of death? &nbsp;I share with you some of our reflections.<br> &nbsp;<br> Traditionally, we have understood salvation as saving us from hell: Jesus died on the cross to save our souls from the consequence of our sin, which is death.

Juan proposed that they should meet to share concerns about the problems their countries faced and to “think theologically” about them. I was appointed to organize the first ever “Political dinner” around the theme of violence. After a delicious potluck, we retired to the newly organized lounge and I explained that representatives of four countries would have 15 minutes each to talk, followed by 5 minutes of questions and clarifications, then we would open up to general discussion for another 40 minutes. We heard from Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Peru.</span><span style="font-size:11.5pt;line-height: 125%;font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:#606060"></span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;min-width: 100%;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow:yes"> <td style="padding:6.75pt 6.75pt 6.75pt 6.75pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal:column; mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:0in 6.75pt 0in 6.75pt;min-width: 100%; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:center" align="center"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;"><img id="_x0000_i1027" src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/94785b8e50d661d4458849098/images/e14c1bcf-a3b1-4bd2-a9cc-85bf55df757d.jpg" class="mcnImage" align="middle" border="0" width="564"></span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow:yes"> <td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal:column; mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:6.75pt 13.5pt 6.75pt 13.5pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:150%"><span style="font-size: 10.5pt;line-height:150%;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:#606060">The stories were heartbreaking. They spoke of living in a suffocating atmosphere of fear and mistrust that permeates every aspect of their lives. They detailed the structural violence corroding their countries: corruption, poverty, illiteracy, concentration of wealth in a few families, military repression, impunity, lack of justice. They claimed that not only were the governments not able to control the criminality, gangs, and mafias, but they participated in them and profited from them. The governments, they said, align with international corporations to steal land from Indigenous peoples to exploit petroleum and minerals. One student told of the systematic destruction of his people, the Indigenous Miskitos of the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua. All spoke with passion and pain. They detailed how the structural violence has provoked domestic violence, drug and alcohol addiction, and street crime. The pervasive impunity has motivated a vigilante justice in which criminals are burned alive by the community. The terror has forced mass migrations, breaking up families and communities.<br> &nbsp;<br> <strong><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">What then, has been the role of the church? </span></strong>Surely the church has stood out against these injustices, has spoken for the poor and marginalized, has called for justice?

What? Yes, everything is theological, because <strong><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">theology is how we see God and how we see the world.</span></strong> For centuries, people perceived disabilities as signs of God’s disfavor, as punishment for sin, as a curse. People without sight or the ability to walk or with epilepsy were shunned and feared.<br> &nbsp;<br> Later, a medical model was established: disabilities are imperfections, diseases that should be healed. Doctors worked hard to “correct” the disability with medicine, therapy, surgery . . . The “handicapped” person was a <em><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">patient</span></em> in the hands of the expert. The goal was to “fix” this defective person. Had God messed up?<br> &nbsp;<br> But more recently, a social model has developed in which the person with a disability is perceived not as a patient but as a <em><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">citizen</span></em>. The world is filled with people with diverse abilities and disabilities, and it is society that has the responsibility to provide access to basic services for everyone. It is the society that disables people. Every person should have the opportunity to make decisions to live as full a life as possible. We are all created in God’s image, each of us with limitations and potential. We are called to live in community and be responsible one to another.<br> &nbsp;<br> <strong><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">At the University we share a vision for community that is inclusive and committed to justice and empowerment. </span></strong>Some 15% of the world population has a disability. Why do our congregations not reflect that percentage? I want to help pastors learn how to include people with disabilities in their congregation and their educational programs.&nbsp; My students were energized to engage with and include in new ways people with disabilities. </span><span style="font-size:10.0pt;line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;

As a teenager she experienced a conversion in a Methodist Chapel and felt a call to missionary work in Africa. She studied evangelism and nursing for four years at Harley College in London. &nbsp;There she met Harry Strachan, born in Canada of a Scottish family, who also felt called to Africa, and they fell in love. But Susannah was rejected for health reasons and in 1899, at the age of twenty five, she set sail for Argentina, leaving behind not only her family but a man deeply in love with her and determined to share his life with her. Unexpectedly, Harry was also rejected for Africa and sent to Argentina. There they were reunited and married.</span><span style="font-size:11.5pt;line-height:150%;font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:#606060"> </span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow:yes"> <td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal:column; mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%" align="left"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:center" align="center"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;"><img id="_x0000_i1026" src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/94785b8e50d661d4458849098/images/3368b387-2ecd-41a1-b683-f61f90c9a393.jpg" style="-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%<!-- BEGIN BODY // -->; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" class="mcnImage" border="0" width="600" align="middle"></span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow:yes"> <td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:6.25in;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal:column; mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="600" align="left"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:6.75pt 13.5pt 6.75pt 13.5pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:150%"><span style="font-size: 9.0pt;line-height:150%;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:#606060">Some time before this there had been an awakening among the women in Europe and they began their struggles for the right to education, work, and the vote. Susannah grew up in this environment. She notes that in the meetings of her mission in the US, the women were practically invisible. This led her to a plan of action and in 1917 she and another woman formed the Argentine League of Evangelical Women, a group which still exists.<br> &nbsp;<br> When the family moved to Costa Rica, the evangelistic campaigns of her husband required several months traveling throughout the continent, so Susannah assumed all the work of leadership and administration in San José. In fact, Harry left for a tour within days of their arrival to Costa Rica, leaving her to unpack and with $100 and a check which he had forgotten to endorse. She coped just fine. She founded the Bible School for the Training of Women to prepare evangelists for Latin America. This school would become the <em><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Seminario Bíblico Latinoamericano</span></em> and then the <em><span style="font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Universidad Bíblica Latinoamericana</span></em>.<br> <br> <strong><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Susannah had a clear vision of the Gospel as evangelism and social action.</span></strong> She wrote in February 1927: “A Children’s Home is needed in Costa Rica because there are many children who have no home. They are the children who beg, the children who the police take to prison for 15 to 22 days, those that go every day to the school health department to be examined and those who in the winter afternoons we see pass in tiny white coffins, headed toward the cemetery … A Children’s Home is lacking in San José and we have a social obligation to provide it ...” In 1932 an orphanage was founded known as the Hogar Bíblico (Biblical Home). Two members of our UBL community grew up in that Home.</span><span style="font-size:11.5pt;line-height:150%; font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; color:#606060"> </span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow:yes"> <td style="padding:6.75pt 6.75pt 6.75pt 6.75pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal:column; mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%" align="left"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:0in 6.75pt 0in 6.75pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/94785b8e50d661d4458849098/images/a3751a66-8fe2-4090-abc1-39191b219b5c.jpg" height="328" width="300" align="left<!--"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;"></span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow:yes"> <td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:6.25in;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal:column; mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="600" align="left"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:6.75pt 13.5pt 6.75pt 13.5pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:150%"><span style="font-size: 9.0pt;line-height:150%;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:#606060">Susannah founded not only the seminary and the orphanage, but also a hospital, the Clínica Bíblica, which still serves the community and is the medical center for all of us missionaries. The Latin American Mission that Susannah and Harry founded established schools, day care centers and summer camps, a radio&nbsp;station, a publishing house, bookstores, caravans of medical care to&nbsp;rural areas, programs for the aged, as well as churches throughout the&nbsp;region. Many of these ministries are active today.<br> <br> Susannah Stracham still serves as a model of daring faith and creative initiative for us.

His low-key friendliness and servant spirit disguised his vast experience as a pastor, social worker, psychologist, criminologist, and then founder of the first victimology program at the University of California, Fresno, where he taught for 30 years. When we realized the treasure in our midst, we pulled him out of retirement and put him to work!<br> &nbsp;<br> <strong><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">His first premise, which he repeated over and over again, was “It is NEVER acceptable to strike a child. NEVER.”</span></strong><br> &nbsp;<br> One woman in the group told the story of an incident in her church. According to the interpretation of the church members, a 13-year old girl had seduced one of the deacons. Steve was the first to break the shocked silence: “Who is the adult in this incident? The adult is responsible for this, not the child.” He talked about how it is too uncomfortable for the members to let their leader fall, so it’s easier to blame the “disposable” person in the equation. He pointed out that historically, the church has always blamed the woman for any sexual misconduct. (Going all the way back to Jesus’ time, when the Pharisees brought him only the woman of the couple caught in the act of adultery.)</span></p></td></tr></tbody></table></td></tr></tbody></table><table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"><td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"><table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column;mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%" align="left"><tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"><td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"><p class="MsoNormal"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/94785b8e50d661d4458849098/images/014ebfe6-46da-45bf-a808-318183fe6517.jpg" class="mcnImage" height="295" width="396" align="left"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;"></span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:297.0pt;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column;mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="396" align="left"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:6.75pt 13.5pt 6.75pt 13.5pt; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:125%"><span style="font-size: 9.0pt;line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:black">Steve spent a lot of time talking with us about the “Just World Hypothesis,” to which we as Christians are particularly vulnerable. The hypothesis says that good things happen to good people and bad things happen to bad people. So, if something bad happens to you, it must be because you are bad. Somehow you asked for it and you deserve it. This leads to the classic “blaming the victim” syndrome. If the child or the wife gets beaten by the husband, if the teenager is raped, they must have done something to deserve it. We cling to this because otherwise, we would have to acknowledge the sad reality that bad things happen to good people (and good things happen to bad people). It’s the story of Job and his friends.<br> &nbsp;<br> The group was eager to learn what we can do to reduce child abuse. Steve pointed out that much of the abuse is due to bad teaching from the church: not only the Just World Hypothesis, but the “spare the rod, spoil the child” mentality, and the simplistic answers that we so often give. He said, as in all suffering, be there for the victim, listen, be patient, don’t judge, don’t expect a quick recovery. Condemn violence in whatever form it comes and &nbsp;preach a God who stands with the victim.</span><strong><span style="font-size:9.0pt;line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;

I was visiting the missions of my church to offer training and encouragement. It’s a beautiful 4-hour drive through rolling mountains covered with coffee plantations, roving cattle, quaint villages, and plantations of pineapple and sugar cane. In these four little mission churches along the side of a gravel road, God is doing mighty things.</span><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 10pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;"> </span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="display: none; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-hide: all;">&nbsp;</span></p> <table width="100%" class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td valign="top" style="padding: 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <table width="100%" align="left" class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; mso-table-lspace: 2.25pt; mso-table-rspace: 2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical: paragraph; mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column; mso-table-left: left; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td valign="top" style="padding: 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <p class="MsoNormal"><img width="396" height="264" align="left" class="mcnImage" alt="Arenal volcano" src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/94785b8e50d661d4458849098/images/4238f7ec-bfaf-4b32-b2da-61ecf513b68d.jpg"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;"></span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="display: none; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-hide: all;">&nbsp;</span></p> <table width="100%" class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td valign="top" style="padding: 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <table width="396" align="left" class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 297pt; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; mso-table-lspace: 2.25pt; mso-table-rspace: 2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical: paragraph; mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column; mso-table-left: left; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td valign="top" style="padding: 6.75pt 13.5pt; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height: 125%;"><strong><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 10.5pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;">God brings light and new life</span></strong><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 10.5pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;"><br> <br> The picturesque pineapple and sugar cane fields are maintained by backbreaking work at starvation wages. The huge corporations fire their workers after 3 months to avoid paying benefits. But options are limited for the local people, many of whom have no more than a few years of schooling. Ester was one of these. She lives in a tiny rustic house, caring for her elderly father. She was never able to finish high school because she couldn’t afford the bus fare or the textbooks. But her dream is to become a nurse. I was moved by her story and offered to help her. It’s been a difficult journey. When I met with her on this trip, I discovered that she been forced to halt her studies to accompany her father in the hospital for 3 months, living with the help of her extended family. With tears she asked me if I was still willing to help her, now that her father is stabilized. Who could say no to this dream?</span><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 9pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;"> </span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="display: none; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-hide: all;">&nbsp;</span></p> <table width="100%" class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td valign="top" style="padding: 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <table width="100%" align="left" class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; mso-table-lspace: 2.25pt; mso-table-rspace: 2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical: paragraph; mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column; mso-table-left: left; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td valign="top" style="padding: 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <p class="MsoNormal"><img width="396" height="297" align="left" class="mcnImage" alt="Gerarda" src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/94785b8e50d661d4458849098/images/8e45d6e2-8f30-459c-a3ed-9b60cd291fcc.jpg"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;"></span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="display: none; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-hide: all;">&nbsp;</span></p> <table width="100%" class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td valign="top" style="padding: 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <table width="396" align="left" class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 297pt; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; mso-table-lspace: 2.25pt; mso-table-rspace: 2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical: paragraph; mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column; mso-table-left: left; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td valign="top" style="padding: 6.75pt 13.5pt; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height: 125%;"><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 10.5pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;">Ester comes from a family that has experienced the transforming love of God. Her mother grew up in a dysfunctional home that left scars in all the children, but their faith gave them resilience and hope. Both her aunt and her uncle serve churches in the region. Saturday night I stayed with her aunt Gerarda and uncle Leandro. As we sat in the dark (the electricity had gone out), Gerarda told me how she had left home at 14 because the situation was so unbearable. Even at that age she had a strong faith and believed that God would open doors for her. She went in to the big city and got a job as a maid. She recalled how the lady of the house would take her daughters and the two maids out for fried chicken--she would order chicken for her daughters and when they were done, pass the bones over to the maids. After 4 months of mistreatment, God intervened and sent her an angel: a woman who “hired” her, but essentially adopted her as another daughter, sent her to school, taught her basic skills, and encouraged her to become someone. She grew in her faith, married and she and Leandro became pastors. Leandro sells snacks on the buses and Gerarda has a tiny store to supplement their meager pastoral salary. Gerarda’s special ministry has been with Nicaraguan transients, who need a safe haven, a chance to pull their lives and family together, and a touch of the gracious, forgiving, loving arms of God. She know a lot about that God!</span><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 9pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;"> </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height: 125%;"><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 10.5pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;">&nbsp;</span><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 9pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;"></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height: 125%;"><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 10.5pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;">The mother church in San José has accompanied these congregations for many years, and is deeply committed to providing scholarships for the children to study. We have seen the fruits: both high school and university graduates, with good-paying jobs and able to help their families. Gerarda and Leandro’s daughter was “adopted” by a family in the church in San José so that she could complete her university studies. She is now a teacher and she and her husband just adopted two troubled orphan boys. <strong><span style="font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;">Out of darkness, God brings light and new life.</span></strong></span><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 9pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;"> </span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="display: none; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-hide: all;">&nbsp;</span></p> <table width="100%" class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td style="padding: 13.5pt; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <table width="100%" class="MsoNormalTable" style="border: currentColor; border-image: none; width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-border-top-alt: solid forestgreen .75pt;" border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td style="border-width: 1pt medium medium; border-style: solid none none; border-color: forestgreen currentColor currentColor; padding: 0in; border-image: none; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-border-top-alt: solid forestgreen .75pt;"><br></td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="display: none; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-hide: all;">&nbsp;</span></p> <table width="100%" class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td valign="top" style="padding: 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <table width="396" align="left" class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 297pt; border-collapse: collapse; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in; mso-table-lspace: 2.25pt; mso-table-rspace: 2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical: paragraph; mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column; mso-table-left: left; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;"> <td valign="top" style="padding: 6.75pt 13.5pt; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height: 125%;"><strong><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 10.5pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;">2015 Matching Gift Opportunity April 15 to June 15</span></strong><span style="color: black; line-height: 125%; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; font-size: 10.5pt; mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;"><br> Please consider a special gift toward my support during this time.

to Cuba. Let me begin by saying that the Church is alive and well in Cuba. Over 20 years ago, through the influence of a Baptist pastor, the Constitution was changed to establish a secular state, respecting religious rights. Since then, the churches have grown exponentially.<br> <br> Although I did see some Christmas trees, Christmas is not a commercial holiday in Cuba, nor do people exchange gifts. It is primarily a time of worship and celebration of Jesus’ birth.</span><span style="font-size:10.0pt;line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:black"> </span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:6.75pt 6.75pt 6.75pt 6.75pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column;mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:0in 6.75pt 0in 6.75pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/94785b8e50d661d4458849098/images/a5321926-9690-4b99-a362-264071680daa.jpg" class="mcnImage" align="left" height="270" width="360"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;"></span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:297.0pt;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column;mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="396"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:6.75pt 13.5pt 6.75pt 13.5pt; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:125%"><strong><span style="font-size:10.5pt;line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:black">Preparing leaders in Santiago</span></strong><span style="font-size:10.5pt; line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:black"><br> I had been invited by Pancho, my host (front, seated in green shirt), to do a refresher course for the team that writes educational materials for the churches of the Eastern Baptist Convention.

They identified some of the key issues in the country that need to be addressed, and discussed the kind of Christians they need to prepare.&nbsp; They described a mature Christian as self-confident, with a deep faith grounded in worship and obedience to God, honest, other-centered, able to take leadership, willing to listen and dialogue with others. Then we talked about what kind of education will produce that kind of person, focusing on the teaching of the Brazilian educator, Paulo Freire. Most of the group were professionals (doctors, teachers, engineers, computer technicians) and our discussions were rich and fruitful.</span><span style="font-size: 9.0pt;line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:black"> </span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="border-collapse: collapse;" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" height="187" width="397"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:6.75pt 6.75pt 6.75pt 6.75pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:128.25pt;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column;mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="171"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 6.75pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;"><img id="_x0000_i1025" src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/94785b8e50d661d4458849098/images/b6ee6c71-2e5e-4cdc-945d-88084ad6097d.jpg" class="mcnImage" border="0" width="162"></span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:128.25pt;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column;mso-table-left:right;mso-table-top:middle;mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 0in" align="right" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="171"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:0in 6.75pt 0in 0in" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;"><img id="_x0000_i1026" src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/94785b8e50d661d4458849098/images/1067a560-bf16-4b38-81f5-2828ce5711a4.jpg" class="mcnImage" border="0" width="162"></span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:297.0pt;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column;mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="396"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:6.75pt 13.5pt 6.75pt 13.5pt; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:125%"><strong><span style="font-size:10.5pt;line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:black">Visiting in Holguin</span></strong><span style="font-size:10.5pt;line-height: 125%;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; color:black"><br> I was also invited by Ernesto, one of my students at the <em><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Universidad Bíblica Latinoamericana</span></em> in Costa Rica to participate in activities of the Cuban Baptist Fraternity, the other group that works with International Ministries.

Van Winkle, returning to Cuba after 18 years. True, I had visited briefly for special occasions: 2 weddings, an ordination, and the 100th anniversary of the Eastern Baptist Convention. But this trip was for 3 weeks, living with families and interacting deeply with them. &nbsp;I would be teaching three different groups in three parts of the island.<br> &nbsp;<br> <strong><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Much had changed.</span></strong> I flew directly from Miami into Holguin, rather than through a third country, because the US has authorized restricted travel to Cuba. Under the new leadership of Raúl Castro, Fidel’s brother, there is a new openness to express opinions, both privately and publicly. I watched comedians on TV deal with serious social issues through humor and listened to public lectures discussing problems in the country. The government has been calling town hall meetings to hear citizens' concerns and suggestions. Several of these have been implemented, including the elimination of restrictions for leaving the country, permitting the buying and selling of houses and cars, and allowing private businesses. I ate in several nice restaurants (see picture), and wandered through some tourist shops, all privately owned. &nbsp;Whereas 18 years ago I was offered meat only 3 times during the year, and lived on rice, bean soup, and plantains, this time I was served meat sometimes 3 times a day, primarily pork. The Baptist offices now have air-conditioning instead of fans.</span><span style="font-size:10.0pt;line-height:125%; font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;

Especially in the provinces (in contrast to the capital, Havana) everything is scarce and basic survival is like a treasure hunt: searching for food, toilet paper, supplies for house repairs, spices and herbs, fruits and vegetables, car parts, paper, medicine. Transportation is managed with a combination of walking, bicycles, cars, buses, <em><span style="font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">máquinas </span></em>(group taxis), bicycle-taxis, horse and buggy and motorcyles with side cars.&nbsp; Internet is not available. The average salary is $15/ month. This is supplemented by free education through graduate studies and health care as well as basic food items. When the entire system was self-enclosed, the government could fix prices to match the salaries. But when things are imported, the global economy doesn’t match the Cuban salary scale. An imported bar of soap costs $4; a refrigerator, $1000; tennis shoes, $100. &nbsp;Much of the problem is related to the US embargo against Cuba, which doubles the price of all products from the US because they must pass through a third country. I took flash drives for everyone at $4 each; in Cuba they are $25. </span></p> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;; display:none;mso-hide:all">&nbsp;</span></p> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;border-collapse:collapse;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:297.0pt;border-collapse:collapse; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-table-lspace:2.25pt;mso-table-rspace:2.25pt; mso-table-anchor-vertical:paragraph;mso-table-anchor-horizontal: column;mso-table-left:left;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="396"> <tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"> <td style="padding:6.75pt 13.5pt 6.75pt 13.5pt; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:125%"><span style="font-size: 10.0pt;line-height:125%;font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:black">In the next letter I will tell you more about what I was doing in Cuba.

I would like to request that you send me only cards but not monetary gifts for these special occasions. I love hearing from you, and a greeting is more than sufficient. I have directed IM to pass all personal gifts and specifics to my salary fund unless the monies are designated for scholarships. If you want your donation to go to my salary, it should be labeled "targeted to Ruth Mooney". Remember that only a very small percentage of United Mission giving arrives to the missionary, whereas 100% of targeted giving is credited to me, with 0% taken out for administrative costs. No NGO can match that!</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="font-size: 10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#454545">&nbsp;</span></p></td></tr></tbody></table></div><div align="center"><table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;mso-cellspacing:0in;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;height:.75pt"><td style="padding:0in 0in 0in 0in;height:.75pt" valign="top"><table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;mso-cellspacing:0in;mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes;height:.75pt"><td style="background:#D3DDDE;padding:0in 0in 0in 0in; height:.75pt" valign="top"><br></td></tr></tbody></table></td></tr></tbody></table></div><div align="center"><table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100.0%;mso-cellspacing:0in;background:white; mso-yfti-tbllook:1184;mso-padding-alt:0in 0in 0in 0in;display:table" id="content_LETTER.BLOCK14" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow:0;mso-yfti-firstrow:yes;mso-yfti-lastrow: yes"><td style="padding:6.0pt 24.0pt 6.75pt 24.0pt" valign="top"><p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-bidi-font-family:Arial;color:#0067CE">Breaking news</span></strong><span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family:Arial;color:#0067CE"></span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="font-size: 10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-bidi-font-family:Arial; color:#004DB4">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The missionaries in Latin America and the Caribbean have been mourning the upcoming retirement in May of our beloved Area Director José Norat Rodríguez, who has been more of a colleague and pastor than a boss. But our sorrow has been eased by the recent announcement that the new Area Director for Latin America and the Caribbean will be another beloved colleague, Adalia Gutiérrez, a fellow missionary, pastor and physician, who is currently working with her husband Ray Schellinger at Deborah's house in Mexicali, Mexico. I for one am thrilled: she is completely bilingual and bicultural, a powerful leader, pastoral, competent and practical. God will continue to use her greatly in this new role. &nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="font-size: 10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-bidi-font-family:Arial; color:#004DB4">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><strong><span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family:Arial;color:#004DB4">Prayer request:</span></strong><span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family:Arial;color:#004DB4"></span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="font-size: 10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;mso-bidi-font-family:Arial; color:#004DB4">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I leave today (Oct. 31) for Cuba for a 3-week visit.

They started a day care program and a hot lunch program, linked to parenting classes. One day, their neighbor approached Pastor Xinia, offering to sell his land adjoining the church. This would make it possible for the church to provide a playground for children, one of their dreams, but she turned him down because the church had no money to buy it. He insisted, and kept lowering the price, until finally the church realized that God was behind this. One of the members had been planning to buy a new car, but decided to contribute that money toward the down payment on the land instead.

My parents fled with us, leaving behind our house and all our possessions. I didn't understand why we had to walk in silence through the mountains in the icy morning air, why we were not permitted to cry even if we fell down in our hurry, why we had to share one piece of bread amongst everyone, when we had never lacked anything. Our parents gave us all the food they could find, with nothing left for them. My mother, 8 months pregnant, got a job in a kitchen, where she could bring us the leftovers. We lived in fear from both the guerrillas and the army, who arrested and tortured indiscriminately, and many were the nights we slept on the floor as battles raged outside our door.</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="font-size: 11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#322711">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="font-size: 11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#322711">My father, in his despair, turned to alcohol, and the violence moved into our home.
