By the last day of missionary work, the missionaries are tired and well spent but by the grace and strength of God, we keep on going. This particular Friday, June 12, was no different. We were up at the dawn to worship together at the Eucharist at 6:15 a.m. The readings for the day focused on our responsibility and call “to transform unjust structures of society, challenge violence, and pursue peace and reconciliation.”
