Blanca Rosa Salcedo, from Sincelejo, Sucre (Colombia), joined our team in the summer of 2002 and served for a total of 5 1/2 years in Bocachica. Later, Blanca worked with YWAM in Costa Rica and South Africa before returning to work with Proyecto Libertad for a second term in March 2012. Over her 9 years with the ministry, Blanca served in many areas including evangelism & discipleship, leading our weekly cell group meetings and Bible courses, directing our Mini-DTS, supervising our Child Sponsorship Program as well as serving on our Leadership Council. As Blanca has invested these years, using her God-given gifts for teaching and mentoring, her impact on the community has been a valuable asset for Proyecto Libertad and the community of Bocachica.
As Blanca leaves us, she will be continuing her service with YWAM in Cartagena as she steps out in faith to pioneer a new ministry focused on the prevention and intervention of human trafficking.
Blanca is part of our family and while we are sad to see her go and will miss her so much, we are also proud of her for stepping out into this new journey of faith.
