With experience fostering a migrant child, living in Mexico and Honduras, fluent Spanish, and a masters in International Development, Gena Thomas could have a lot to say about immigration. Instead, she humbly defers to latino experts and shares only of her own touch points. Bigger themes include God at work in hard places, growing through suffering, and finding faith in the mother heart of God. 


Mentioned on the show:

Chalmers Center*

Sonia Nazario, Enrique's Journey

  • Do you resonate with the mother heart of God?
