In the Epistle of Saint James we read “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. (James 1:27) For two weeks, His Eminence Mor Dionysius John Kawak and 12 inspired individuals from our community have stepped up to act on this verse. They visited various communities in Guatemala and provided basic household needs, inspiration and prayers. The experience was not just profound and impactful for the communities, but also on them. Thank God and keep an eye out for future missionary opportunities so you can play a role.
