Hi. My name is Michael Joseph. Since 2007 I’ve been a missionary to Colombia, sent by Global Ministries (of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ) to do human rights work with the Peace Commission of the Evangelical Council of Colombia. This quote from Cornel West sums up why I do what I do: “To be a Christian is to live dangerously, honestly, freely – to step in the name of love as if you may land on nothing, yet to keep stepping because the something that sustains you no empire can give you and no empire can take away.”
In 2014 I married my sweetheart, Paola Cárdenas.
