Sister Norma Pimentel shares powerful message from border
Sister Norma Pimentel has been the face of compassion and care for more than 100,000 immigrants along the Texas-Mexico border. During this presentation hosted by the FSPA Encuentro@TheBorderTeam, she shares what she sees on a daily basis at the border. “Encuentro at the border is so important,” shared Sister Norma. “It is important that we really make that encounter with others, especially those who are hurting and suffering; it is only then that we will truly encounter Jesus. It’s so clear for me that God’s presence is there; it is his plan that we don’t overlook these families at the border. He wants us to be there, to be present, to encounter.”
When asked “What can we do?” Sister Norma offered:
>Welcome the immigrants in your local area, share a meal, share a smile.
>Reach out to local leaders and help them understand the stories, the realities, and encourage respectful policies.
>Focus on root causes.
>Come volunteer, be part of it so you can respond with a reality and help others see what we see.
