Dear friends “Healing Our Divided Country”
First I rejoice at the North and South Korea peace agreement. I suggest you go to the link democracy now.org for a very good interview of an American coronel who resigned in protest against the afghan war, and even though she opposes most of trumps doings she gives surprising hopeful insights about the accords.
“I have a friend who recently told me he thinks we should deport all undocumented persons. And we should just do away with those who disagree. We are quite good friends we play soft ball together. How do I begin to talk to him?” shared a student at George Fox University in Oregon.
The professor suggested, “Well you have some common ground in softball. Maybe that would be a good place to start.” The prof added, “Just about every student enter the conversations that was great.” This was from one of the 10 times I shared in Oregon.
Here is our Emily with her family that I shared about in the last letter.
I am glad to report that donation for my Colombian trip and peacemaking course have covered my needs, thank you to all of you donors.
Also I want to add that because of what I have learned about the hot Colombian political atmosphere I have decided it is best to put off my trip till at least the end of June. Keep praying for peace in Colombia.
Shalom to you all.
