Build bridges, not walls

Just two blocks north of our home in Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico, is a 40-block-long linear park that straddles the U.S.-Mexico border. My family and I enjoy walking there in the evening and relish the spectacular sunsets that don’t respect borders. In this time of pandemic, we are glad to see families and friends walking dogs and getting exercise along the 14-foot-wide park.

Sunday at the border

On a cool Arizona Sunday evening, mission co-workers Miriam Maldonado Escobar and the Rev. Mark Adams gathered with group of Christians on the border between Agua Prieta, Mexico, and Douglas, Arizona, for a prayer pilgrimage in solidarity with the “Not Another Foot” movement to call for an end of the massive border wall spanning the entire Southern border of the United States.

A livestreaming event from both sides of the border

Join CAME, a shelter for families seeking asylum; Frontera de Cristo, a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) ministry; and Centro de Recursos para Migrantes at 5 p.m. Arizona/Pacific Time (8 p.m. Eastern Time) on Friday, Sept. 25, for a livestreaming event from the border.
