In March 2002 I began working with Mennonite Mission Network in relationship with Latin America. I interact with workers, churches, and other entities in twelve Latin American countries, and in regional work that includes people from other countries as well. Mission Network supports the development and missional work of Mennonite churches in the region and also collaborates with indigenous evangelical churches and holistic ministry programs. 

Before serving with Mission Network, I worked with Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Latin America and Caribbean programs, including service in Bolivia and Honduras. 

I have learned a lot in relationship with the churches in Latin America through the years. My formal education includes a bachelor's degree in history and social science from Bethel College, North Newton, Kansas, and a master's degree in peace studies from Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. 

I am from Newton, Kansas, where I have my membership in the First Mennonite Church, and I am also actively involved with Iglesia Menonita Casa Betania. 

Linda Shelly, administradora regional para América Latina 

En marzo de 2002 comencé a trabajar con la Red Menonita de Misión en relación con América Latina. Me relaciono con obreros/as, iglesias y otras entidades en doce países de América Latina, y en trabajo regional que incluye también a personas de otros países. La Red Menonita de Misión apoya el desarrollo y el trabajo misional de las iglesias menonitas de la región, y también colabora con iglesias evangélicas indígenas y programas de ministerio integral. 

Antes de servir con la Red Menonita de Misión, trabajé con los programas de América Latina y el Caribe del Comité Central Menonita (CCM), incluyendo períodos de servicio en Bolivia y Honduras. 

He aprendido mucho en relación con las iglesias de América Latina a través de los años. Mi educación formal incluye un título en historia y ciencias sociales de Bethel College, North Newton, Kansas, y un máster en estudios de la paz del Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (Seminario Bíblico Menonita Anabautista).

Soy de Newton, Kansas, donde tengo mi membresía en la iglesia First Mennonite Church y también estoy participando activamente con Iglesia Menonita Casa Betania.
