Check out this article about NSM Philadelphia's recent intern, Maria Byler, in the Goshen College news archives. http://www.goshen.edu/news/pressarchive/12-04-09-mip-byler379.html
(The complete article, by Noël King, first appeared in the Fall 2009 issue of Indiana-Michigan Mennonite Conference's Missional Seeds newsletter.)
Maria Byler spent the summer as a field worker in South Philadelphia with Franconia Mennonite Conference through the Ministry Inquiry Program. Above, she translates a worship service from Spanish to English at the Centro de Alabanza de Filadelfia (Philadelphia Praise Center), the congregation in which she participated during her 11-week internship.
During her experience working with the New Sanctuary Movement, Maria listened to immigrants' stories, visited detention centers, attended meetings, and helped with projects. She is currently a Goshen College senior social work major with a Spanish minor.
