This Encounter informed me to a reality that I thought I understood but actually had no idea about. Hearing stories, seeing faces, and getting to know the human beings involved in this issue really truly moved me. These aren’t numbers or characters not connected to me. They are all human beings and I will not allow that to be forgotten or allow them to be dehumanized.  The people of Arcatao taught me about community. What it means to be a part of a community and to allow the community to be a part of them.  Luke Cancilla

The experience of immersion in the communities has taught me so much more about the value of community, hard work, simplicity and love.  Claudia Kowal

This encounter helped me understand the meaning of a “Church that feels”. It made me feel for the people and this country. It broke my heart and helped me to know that you need peace to have justice.  Brian Cerbana

This trip reaffirmed my interest in Global Justice. I was most struck about how many present-day issues (migration to the US specifically) was relevant and related to El Salvador’s history.  Vanesa Miranda
