Today was mosting about getting here.
After an early morning (6:30 AM) send-off and commissioning by Bishop Gayle, our group of seven young people and three not-quite-as-young people headed off from Logan this morning for Phoenix. In Phoenix we picked up the van and headed to Nogales, AZ, our base for the next five days. Here we met our host for the week, the Rev. Rodger Babnew, Borderlands Missioner for the Diocese of Arizona. Over dinner, he introduced us to his work and explained that “We are not here to bring Christ to the migrants with whom he works. They bring Christ to us, and it is Christ who brought them to us.”
Stay tuned to here of our progress, our experiences, and our hopes and dreams. (But remember that we are three hours behind Boston, so it might be pretty late each night before our posts get published. Just sayin…)
