ArropƔndonos con Esperanza:
Clothing Each Other with Hope
by Ximena Ulloa Montemayor
Staff note: Ximena Ulloa montemayor was the 2017 BPFNA ~ Bautistas
por la Paz Summer Conference Director. She brought together leaders and
participants from 12 countries to organize worship, teach Bible study,
preach, conduct workshops, work with youth and children, and much
more. She brought together more than 200 people, about half of whom
spoke Spanish and half of whom spoke english, for an amazing week
of discovery and solidarity. And she managed an immensely complicated,
multicultural logistical challenge with an incredible amount of grace.
Below is her letter to the board of directors after the conference was over.
english:

your help.
Every word offered, every prayer, every message of support, every hug, every sign of affection, every help during
the camp (from the very least to the greatest things), were the
vitamins that enabled me to have strength every morning to
continue, to follow in this work, despite extreme exhaustion.
that is and was the most important thing for me to be

able to get through the week. Without that "gasoline," I would
not have been able to fill my tank-heart, and I would not have
had enough strength.
that is why I want to thank everyone for your great
support, those who were here during the camp, but also those
who could not come, because I know we were present in your
thoughts and prayers, and we could feel it from a distance.

"For me, BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz is
a great family, God's great family that
serves, shares, helps, loves and works;
a big family that believes that another
world IS possible if we work together."
this job has been a great experience for me. It was a great
blessing for my life, a huge learning, and now I am left with
more challenges, trying to decipher what god wants for my
