Beyond Borders: Faith and Action in the Arizona desert

My sister Rebecca was ordained as a minister last month.  (Congrats Beck!)  One of the projects she worked on while in Seminary was the production of the video Beyond Borders: Faith and Action in the Arizona Desert.   The video is described as “It’s a 25 minute documentary targeted to people of faith, about the work of volunteers on the Mexico/Arizona border who are on the front lines of the immigration situation.”

She worked hard to put this together, and it shows.  The finished product is thought provoking and puts a human face on the issue of immigration.  I applaud her for her fearlessness in going out into the desert to discover what is happening and then for sharing it with the world.  I was very moved by the piece, and thoroughly impressed and proud that my sister is responsible for its creation.
