Roberto, NC Farmworker, 2020
Being in this country that is very different than mine… it’s like a strange country since there’s a different language, a different culture… there are organizations that help me feel safer—such as Vecinos. Vecinos has been here to help with medicine, doctors’ appointments, translations, and even more so during this global pandemic. Vecinos has been very attentive to us farmworkers.
Regardless of religion, when I read the Bible, I realize that many people look to God to feel safe and sound from many threats… today it’s the same since the Bible contains a lot of knowledge for our own good. I’m sure it’s a book that’s completely different than others because it provides certainty and confidence from a God who does not exclude anyone, and we can turn to him.
