Word Made Flesh

Word Made Flesh Bolivia seeks abundant life for those affected by prostitution.  Specifically, we work directly with those in the sex trade. We understand that when a woman feels there is no other option, she may turn to the streets. Maybe hungry tummies await her at home or debts crowd heavy around her. Maybe he beats her viciously and she's inconceivably trapped. Most likely someone wounded her long ago, and under desperate circumstances, she considers the unthinkable. Over time she withers away, hating what she does, yet unable to see any way out. The WMF community accompanies her during this journey, sharing the Hope we have in Christ along the way, and offering practical ministries that pave a new way forward.  Learn more here.
