Fineke Janssen was born in a small village in Holland in 1955. In 1989 Fineke left Holland to begin her first term as a missionary in La Paz, Bolivia. During the early years she became aware of the Lord showing her the needs of young, addicted people on the streets and leading her to work with them.
This resulted in the founding of Mission Adulam in 1992, of which she is founder and executive director. She started working on the streets of La Paz and El Alto with street gangs, reaching out to addicted people to try and encourage them to leave the streets and start a different life with God’s help.
She now runs two rehabilitation centers (houses) for addicted young people, together with a team of Bolivian Christians. An average of 25 addicted teenage boys and women are living within the houses, together sometimes with small children, who come with their mum. The third house is a center for vulnerable children where over 50 children receive help with a variety cognitive and behavioral problems. The goal is to help them get a grip so they can better cope in school, the team also works with the parents to help them understand their child.
