The Maryknoll Affiliate mission statement says that we Affiliates cross borders. This issue emphasizes some of the many ways we do that. Executive Coordinator, Bob Short gives a deeper explanation of the message of MAC 2014 and the New Wave, as do the Affiliates in the Spanish No Tan Lejos del Horizontes. Crossing Borders means new ways of seeing the world, resisting the injustices, working constructively to live new ways, engaging the power structures, transforming ourselves and being the new wave of mission.

We can cross borders electronically, too.  Almost 100 people have responded to the Affiliate Media Survey; We’ll report the results in the next NSFA issue.
