Vision Trip to Guatemala and El Paso/Juarez

Immigration is a complex issue for sure and we’re looking for ways to actually respond redemptively.  That begins with understanding, and so we’re also going to a ‘border encounter’ between Texas and Mexico to understand more, and to discover ways to respond first as citizens of the Kingdom of heaven and responsible citizens of America.

Nate Bacon, who has lived and ministered in Guatemala for over 20 years.  Read more about Nate and his work here. Sami Di Pasquale, one of our co-founders of the Matthew 25 Initiative of the ACNA, is another brother doing work at the border. See more about his work here.  Among many other things, Sami offers ‘border encounters’ in his hometown between El Paso and Juarez, to help folks understand what is actually going on there, who the people are, what the issues are, what the Bible has to say about all that, and how Christians can help.

So on October 20-29 we will go to Nate in Guatemala and visit their work there, and then together we’ll keep on going to learn from Sami at the border and see both sides of it.  

1)  This is an exploratory trip, a trip to pay attention to God. There are a very limited number of spaces available for some who might like to join us. So, if you feel God may be stirring in your heart to do this, and you would be committed to helping follow up on the trip in some way and helping us discern next steps, email Karla Petty to let us know and we’ll discern together.

3) If you’re concerned about what’s going on on our border and the conditions that are creating this situation, join us on Wednesday, November 6.  We’ll learn, pay attention together, pray together, and follow God as he leads.
