Received the following words of encouragement from Claire, a participant from a delegation from Larchmont Avenue Presbyterian Church in 2014:
"I have joined a women bible group aptly named Birds of Pray and this term we are each sharing how God has impacted our lives. For me the most poignant thing God has given me of late is my experience at the US/Mexican border with [Frontera de Cristo] and the rest of the Larchmont Avenue Church with whom i traveled with. So for my sharing day, I would like it to be based around the Tuesday vigil and the work of the Samaritans. If permitted would you be willing to share with me about a dozen or so names of persons that you pray for every Tuesday so that we can also hold them in prayer here in Vevey. It will be kept strictly confidential to me and my group only, unless authorized by you to be also shared with in our church. I would like to breathe insight to what the border is like and especially in the current political climate. "
