Bishop Susan Brown Snook joined the Bishop of Western Mexico, The Rt. Rev. Ricardo Joel Gómez Osnaya; the Bishop of Southeastern Mexico, The Rt. Rev. Julio C. Martin; the Bishop of Guatemala, The Rt. Rev. Silvestre Romero; and delegations from San Diego and Los Angeles in Tijuana to discuss mutual ministry and cooperation across the border. The group later lunched with members of Via International and visited the Vida Joven orphanage, supported by multiple churches in the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego.
Bishop Susan Brown Snook said, “It was a joy to meet with my companion bishops from south of the border and talk about cooperating in ministry together. The work of Via International in helping women start small businesses through micro-credit was inspiring and hopeful. And my heart was truly touched by the children of Vida Joven.

I saw the hand of God everywhere I looked.” Read More
