Show Notes

Welcome to Lavish Hope, Season 3! In episode 2, I welcome back Jael Serrano Altamirano, a wife and mom, radio host, non-profit business owner and pastor in southern California, who joined me one year ago to share how she stayed hopeful and resilient in the midst of an ongoing journey to see her husband, Allan, be released from ICE detention. Two months after we spoke, the miraculous news came and since then, Jael and Allan have been “in the process” of navigating life, ministry and the amazing possibilities God has laid on their hearts. In this episode we get to hear from both Jael and Allan to share pieces of their journey. To put this in context, they had been married for a less than a month when their world turned over, and as Allan so poignantly shares, nothing in his life up to that point could prepare him for what 20 months of detention would be like. Surrounded by strong faithful parents and supporters, this couple overcame unbelievable odds, even founding a non profit to help other detainees and their families. In the 11 months since Allan’s release, they have continued to lean into their callings, build their ministries, process and heal, and (this is the best part) grow their family. You don’t want to miss this multi-faceted episode full of rich, very real inspiration on how to stay hopeful, purposeful and healthy in the midst of adversity and beyond.
