It is true that the closer you get to something, the more complicated it becomes. Alex Rivero, EFCA West's Director of All People Ministries, and Tim Jacobs discuss what they learned during a recent trip to the border along with ten other EFCA pastors and leaders. Traveling with Abara Ministries, the team had the opportunity to be briefed by members of the United States Border Patrol, as well as visit a shelter across the border in Juarez for refugees who had been turned away for asylum in the US. In this episode you'll hear aspects of the immigration issue that you'll never hear discussed in the news, as well as specific steps you can take to become part of the solution no matter where you live. If you have more questions about how EFCA West is addressing the immigration crisis, please reach out to Alex at firstname.lastname@example.org.
