"It is part of my work to be in dangerous areas. I am happy to be here. I have a calling and a mission to be here. We believe the Gospel should be taught in everyday life no matter the circumstances."

- Sr. Gloria Xo, quoted in "Sisters' school stands out in Guatemalan dump town," published on Global Sisters Report
