New mail from Costa Rica

How do people from our partner organizations experience the unrest in Chile and Bolivia? Some of them have their say in the new newsletter by Simone Dollinger and Angel Román. A staff member of SEDEC, the development and training ministry of the Methodist Church in Concepción, told the two, for example, that she would never have dared to go out on the streets during the imposed curfew. The younger people are different, says the interlocutor from Chile: "This new generation does not have the fear of the Chilean dictatorship in its bones like we do, and they dared to continue the protest in the streets unabated."

Angel Román is a lecturer in theology and coordinator of research at the Universidad Bíblica Latinoamericana (UBL)Simone Dollinger coordinates the theological area of Mission 21's Latin America program. In their newsletter, the two report on their work and everyday life in Costa Rica.

We thank both of them for the newsletter and wish you, dear readers, a stimulating read.
