Kara Johansen Crawford, a.k.a. RevolUMCionaria, is currently in Bogotá, Colombia, serving the first year-and-a-half of her time as a Mission Intern through the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church with an organization called CEPALC (Centro Popular para América Latina de Comunicación).
…time will tell what exactly I’ll be doing with CEPALC (though I have some idea; more updates to come soon), or where I’ll be going next (updates to come in about 16 months), but for now, I’m living by the Mission Credo that I created for myself during training (effectively the way that I wish to live and be during my time as a Mission Intern and beyond):
Tread Lightly Breathe Deeply Love Unconditionally Listen Intentionally Communicate Honestly Accept Graciously Welcome Openly Embrace Lovingly Seek God Seek Relationship Seek Solidarity Seek Transformation
…throughout my time in Colombia and beyond, may it be so…
