Stories from the Field – Carmen
Recently, the government of Veracruz discovered a mass grave on one of the local beaches that was filled with more than 250 dismembered bodies. Carmen was notified and asked to provide a DNA sample for her son to determine if his was one of the bodies.

We lived it. And in the midst of it, we were dying to the dream we had of ministering in Spanish, having a deep love for the people, culture and language.
