Lindsey: The picture of justice

To say that working with Paz y Esperanza was both a joy and an honor would be to repeat words that have already been said. As the interning photographer for Paz this last summer (2017), I had the incredible opportunity to visit almost all of their Peruvian offices, and in each one I was welcomed with open arms – not only as a fellow worker and professional, but as a human and fellow sister in Christ. In the offices I saw Micah 6:8 lived out: these people do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with their God. Their passion for their people challenges me. Their trust and love for God in the face of enormous injustices amazes me. Their lives, their hopes, their dreams, their concerns, cause me to inspect myself and question many things I have always taken for granted and to re-evaluate my values and my culture in the light of the global church, the relations between the global North and global South, and the vision of the world God sets before us in His word. Their generosity and hospitality, the great care that they take of their interns in the midst of their work, are a beautiful testament to the generosity and hospitality of our God. They truly reflect the God who told us, ‘Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied’ (Luke 6:20-21). To work alongside them and be able to support them in their mission through my photography was an honor, a joy, and a deeply humbling process.”
