The Spanish word encuentro means much more than you might think. In this clip from "In Good Faith," Sr. Elizabeth Ann Guerrero, a Missionary Catechist of Divine Providence, explains how "something very spiritual happens" in this deep encounter. Encuentro "can be as wide and as deep and as profound as you want," she says, and it's part of the mission of the Association of Latin American Missionary Sisters in the United States, or AHLMA, which she heads.
