Help Keep Our Family Together!
Cristina is a loving mother of three children aged 14, 12 and 8. She has been an active member of the First Presbyterian Church of Douglas since 1997 raising her children in the Christian faith. She was raised in the Lirio de los Valles Presbyterian Church in Agua Prieta and served in the church’s daycare center for many years. She is currently a deacon of FPC Douglas and serves at the Vacation Bible School each year.
On Friday, May 17, her life, the life of her children, and the life of our community of faith was turned upside down after she was stopped for a minor traffic violation. The Sheriff did an immigration check and discovered that her visa had expired—Cristina was immediately taken into custody by the Border Patrol and deportation proceedings were begun. After 11 days of being separated from her children, Cristina is now out on bond awaiting a hearing before the immigration judge.
Border to Border 2013: Coffee, Migration, and Faith
The Just Trade Center, a ministry of Frontera de Cristo, is planning another Border to Border trip for November 2013. The mission delegation begins in Douglas, Arizona and continues to Salvador Urbina, Chiapas (near the Guatemalan border). Delegates will learn about coffee and its place in migration from Southern Mexico. Travelling is a chance to build personal relationships and learn about how individuals and communities can create positive change
