Andrea Toledo Baker
CEO & Founding Partner, Word Made Flesh Bolivia
Andrea grew up in the Southern USA as the oldest of three girls. Though she dedicated her heart to the Lord in high school, her life changed dramatically when she met Him personally at Asbury College. In 1994, she traveled to Bolivia on her first overseas mission trip, where she discovered a passion for missions and a heart for the poor. Since then, she and her husband, Andy, traveled on various short-term trips to China and throughout Latin America. In 1997, she graduated with a BA in Applied Communications/Public Relations and that same year married. In 2001 she graduated with an MA in World Missions and Evangelism from Asbury Seminary. Her heart is to love the lost and awaken the church to the plight of the poor. In 2001, they moved to El Alto, Bolivia to begin their service among the poor. After researching the area, they decided to focus on women in prostitution, where they found a gaping need. They live in Bolivia with their four sons Elias, Luke, Owen and Asher.
