We have officially transitioned into the last section of the tour – Chiapas and the Southern Border. Yesterday we had to say goodbye to two of our own: Megan and Thomas. We miss you guys already, and hope that you are doing well.
Megan, muchos gracias for your hard work, excellent leadership and eagerness to learn. Your insightful questions and thoughtful guidance was appreciated by all of us.
Thomas, thank you for your wisdom and insight, eagerly and humbly shared with us all. Your ability to generate conversation and bring laughter to hard days was very valuable.
We are now in Chiapas! We are staying at a hotel here in Tapachula and are eager to see the southern border and hear more about migration from Central America and add another layer to our understanding of this issue. Here to help us out are Myriam and John, two MCC workers serving in Chiapas and Guatemala respectively. We welcome them to team! Again, internet isn’t great here so we will try and post pictures once we are back in Mexico City. Also, tomorrow (Friday the 23rd) we are headed out to a cabin and a lake so we likely won’t have access to wifi, but will send out an update as soon as we get it back.
