Stepping into the Gap at Tiempo de Paz
“It’s been a wonderful challenge,” says Liliana, Tiempo de Paz’s Director as she spoke to us recently about the adventure of opening a third Learning Centre in one of Colombia’s most notorious, drug-saturated neighbourhoods, where crime and neglect impact the children far too often.
So, what leads Liliana to call this a “wonderful” challenge?
She and her team – including the new Centre’s manager, a young woman who listened to the Lord’s call and left a thriving law career to step into this role – know that God has called them to step into the gap to help the children.
Local churches, law enforcement, business – they all want to see Tiempo de Paz succeed in helping children to break out of a multi-generational cycle of abuse, crime, and drug addiction. For many kids, Tiempo de Paz is not only an oasis in a threatening world. It is their first and only glimpse of a different world. A world of possibility. A world of safety. A world of hope!
