Healing the wounds of war
Following a sense that God had called her to the work of healing the wounds of war, Grace Mishler arrived in Vietnam in the year 2000. Responding to an invitation from Ho Chi Minh City University of Social Sciences and Humanities, her assignment was to teach English to faculty, in anticipation of starting a social work program at the university. Grace soon found that her experience as a blind person would become an important part of her work.​​

Light in the Dark
​​Josue and Norma Vazquez Maldonado were anticipating the birth of their third child, six years after their second daughter was born. They had settled comfortably in Fort Myers, Florida, having moved from their native Puerto Rico. They were attending church at Iglesia Menonita Arca de Salvación. One of the first people to welcome them was Ruth Diaz Mellote, who immediately became friends with Norma and would soon become even more significant in their lives.
