Peaceful Resistance Recap: Week of December 31 
Happy New Year! This is the weekly email for the BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz Peaceful Resistance group.
A year like no other!
An end of year message from BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz Board President Mayra Picos Lee
"My dear friends, there are a lot of new and exciting changes happening in 2019, and many of them are the result of the faithful witness of many people over the years. 2019 is going to be a year like no other year in the life of BPFNA~Bautistas por la Paz! It is going to be a year of movement, changes, dislocation and relocation that will indeed grow our commitment for peace and justice throughout the world! It is a year that is going to be as exciting as it may be scary because we are daring to go where we have not gone before as an organization. [But] God is calling us to be a community of people who are moved into risky action by the depth of our hearts."
¡Un año como ningún otro!
Mensaje de fin del año de la presidenta de la junta de BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz, Mayra Picos Lee
"Mis queridas amigas y amigos, hay muchos cambios nuevos y emocionantes en 2019, y muchos de ellos son el resultado del testimonio fiel de muchas personas a lo largo de los años. ¡2019 será un año como ningún otro en la vida de BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz! ¡Será un año de movimientos, cambios, dislocación y reubicación que harán crecer nuestro compromiso por la paz y la justicia en todo el mundo! Es un año que promete tantas emociones como temores porque nos estamos atreviendo a caminar hacia donde no lo hemos hecho antes como organización. [Pero] Dios nos está llamando a ser una comunidad de personas que asuman acciones arriesgadas por la profundidad del amor que habita en nuestros corazones."
