‘Hungry’ & ‘confused’ migrants aided by N.M. Baptists

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (BP) -- At the request of municipal and federal agencies, faith-based organizations in Albuquerque, N.M., including the Baptist Convention of New Mexico, are helping to house and feed more than 400 asylum-seeking migrants from South and Central America. "This is a different kind of response for us," said Ira Shelton, director of New Mexico Baptist Disaster Relief (NMBDR). Jesus' teaching on helping "the least of these" Matthew 25:31-46 "says to me, we need to be helping these people. They're hungry and they're confused. If we can bring hope, help and healing, then that's what we need to do."
