This chapter explores the mission of the Church and the importance of not only ministering to migrants but getting them involved in ministry as well. The author uses the image of the 'Border Christ' that stands outside the parish church of St. Pius X in El Paso as a metaphor for arguing that the church of migrants is the body of Christ
