The indigenous women of Bolivia have a popular saying that everyone knows in the country: "The more he beats me, the more he loves me." They say this about their husbands because domestic abuse is so common! I have never seen such rampant abuse of women than I have in this country. I have visited Bolivia three times and I have preached in La Paz, Santa Cruz, Oruro, Cochabamba, Trinidad and Sucre. I work primarily with Ekklesia Church, a dynamic congregation in La Paz pastored by Alberto and Silvia Salcedo. They have churches in most Bolivian cities and they are committed to challenging the culture of machismo that has brought such pain to women in this part of the world.
