Susan Classen's nine years in Bolivia and El Salvador brought intense personal experiences: an appendicitis attack in an isolated Bolivian village, being arrested and caught in cross fire in El Salvador, and challenging relationships. Identifying with survivors of poverty and oppression raised questions about nonviolence and God's presence in the midst of suffering. Classen's personal losses and life in war torn El Salvador overwelmed her. While on retreat for several months, she remembered the day she saw butterflies dancing near vultures in search of cadavers. Through that image she identified the theme of contradictions and realized she was living the biblical truth that hope springs from suffering, life from death, and strength from weakness.
