Walk in Love: Border Tour

Allison and Kendall recently had the opportunity to join the Diocese of West Texas for their Walk in Love Border Tour. The “Walk in Love” border tour highlighted some of the Episcopal ministries and humanitarian efforts in south-central Texas. The May 15-17 tour of Texas began in San Antonio and made stops along the U.S.-Mexico border in Roma, McAllen and Brownsville.

The ‘Walk in Love’ episode features an interview with two of the participants on the tour who also work at The Episcopal Church – Lacy Broemel, Refugee and Immigration Policy Advisor in The Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations and Jenny Grant, Officer for Global Relations and Networking in The Episcopal Church Office of Global Partnerships.
