Feeding Bodies, Souls at the Border

Born in Mexico and growing up in the U.S., the Rev. Saúl Montiel has been on both sides of the border where he now serves as a United Methodist missionary. Because of his own struggles, Montiel vowed to make justice an integral part of his life. He provides food, Communion and compassion to those struggling to survive in drainage areas along the Tijuana River. Says Montiel, "It is our responsibility to express to the world that we Methodists care for those who suffer."
