Nothing wrong with that. Because of my Filipino wife, we've had the opportunity to support, in part, a missionary and his family in the Philippines.

What causes me to shake my head and rub my temples is this; we send missionaries down to Mexico and Latin America so those folks can get to heaven, then we talk about building a wall or a huge fence so those folks can't get to America.


The missionary we send is our minister, who was born in Trinidad of Hindu parents. We have other immigrants in our congregation soem form the Carribean, others from South America, we have had some form Europe and Asia just not at the moment.

We are not just talking about the wall we are building it.....
