March 8th immediately following the 11 AM worship service there will be an opportunity for ALL (not just United Methodist Women) to learn more about what is happening on the southern border. Following lunch we will hear from Deaconess Karen Cheek, who was on the southern border between Texas and Mexico the end of the past summer. She will be going to the Arizona border in February of 2020 and plans to speak about the humanitarian crisis happening at the southern border. Deaconess Lisa Bachman and Sharon Brignon will join her in the presentation. All three of them participated in the trip to the Texas border. Since their initial trip a lot has happened. Lisa and Sharon participated in a border wall advocacy event in Washington DC and Lisa and Karen are traveling to Arizona to experience the immigration situation at the desert. There is so much to share and to have all three present their experiences and perspectives will provide a more complete report of the immigration situation. You won’t want to miss this.
