I will be traveling to Chiapas, Mexico in June for a week. I found out about the trip last Sunday and bought my ticket on Wednesday. A little brash, I admit but it felt right and after I bought the ticket, I felt a deep peace in my heart.
Chiapas is an area rich in natural resources to the south of Mexico. Most of the indigenous people of Mexico live there. Rich land and poor people is always a bad combination for human dignity and rights. I will be visiting a mission of Dominican sisters who help people in the area. We will visit various villages and human rights organizations.
I am so excited!
