Cultural awareness aids DOOR directorBy Mennonite Mission Network
Lucero said his life experience of moving between worlds reflects what he does every day in his work with DOOR.
“When groups come, a majority of them are white, and they come from money,” he said. “I show them the neighborhood where I grew up and the city that I grew up in. I get to show them how God is working through the agencies that have helped me in my life.”
The job is rewarding in other ways, too, he said.
“I love to see [the groups] reflect at the end of the day about how they saw God and how they were able to receive more than they gave — from a young child, from a homeless person,” Lucero said. “I love to see them grow. They thought they were here to give.”
