We started off the morning interviewing Daniella, who I picked up from the airport in Phoenix a few days ago. Her story and testimony was very moving. She was truthful and you could feel her honesty during the interview.
Later we went to a town north of Nogales called Arivaca. Arivaca is a small town of no more than 50 people. Father Pete took us to mass that he was presiding over. When we walked in, myself and another guy called drafted to sing in the choir. This choir had zero talent and I couldn’t help but laugh the whole first song but it was a blast. We witnessed two baptisms and one first communion. It was really cool.
After mass and a pot luck dinner with the people of Arivaca we went to a ranch and interviewed its owners. I talked to the owner a lot during the lunch after mass so I shot b-roll around his property while everyone else interviewed them. I walked a lot around his 50,000 plus acres. The land here is truly spectacular. I have really enjoyed and cherished time that I’ve spent alone the last few days. There is so much to process and to be at peace in thought in this land is a blessing.
