Our nation has been gripped by images and stories from the U.S./Mexico border. We have heard statistics, opinions and countless messages about the tens of thousands who are trying to cross the border into the United States each month. Many of us feel helpless and don’t know what can or should be done. Matthew Soerens joins Today’s Conversation to clarify what’s going on at the border and how Christians can make a difference.
In this podcast, you’ll hear Matthew Soerens and NAE President Leith Anderson discuss their recent trip to the U.S./Mexico border and:
- Why so many people are leaving their countries to come to the United States;
- What leaders agree on regarding a solution to the crisis;
- How churches and nonprofits are ministering along the border; and
- What churches thousands of miles away can do.
Matthew Soerens has served with World Relief, the NAE’s humanitarian arm, for 13 years. He is currently the U.S. director of church mobilization, and seeks to help churches understand the complexities of immigration from a biblical perspective.
Leith Anderson has been president of the National Association of Evangelicals since 2006, and was the senior pastor of Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, for 35 years before retiring in 2011.
