IJM’s Fight Against Gender-Based Violence in Latin America with Brad Twedt

In this episode, Mimi and Kim interview Brad Twedt of International Justice Mission (IJM). Brad explains IJM’s work to address violence against women and children in the machismo culture of Central and South America. IJM works with the police departments, prosecutors, departments of justice, and local community anti-violence advocates to change the culture of violence against women. As they face powerful forces, they find that reliance on God in praise, supplication, and lament gives them the strength in their work.
