Berkeley woman goes to Bolivia as Lay Missioner

Ann Kennedy of Berkeley, Calif., who was attracted to the Maryknoll Lay Missioners (MKLM) because of the organization's recognition of Christ in diverse cultures, looks forward to encountering Christ in Bolivia. "I shall be blessed to share core Gospel values with those with whom I work," she says. Kennedy brings to her mission 30 years' experience teaching English, English as a second language and introductory Spanish in California and New Mexico plus a host of teaching and learning experiences in China, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico and India. In Bolivia she plans to be involved in education and to assist in prison and hospital ministries. "I hope my work will result in others' knowing the joy of expressing their full potential," she says.
