Accompaniment is to walk with another as a friend. Allowing them to lead the way while offering support, encouragement, and not abandoning them when things get difficult. It is the presence of a friend who does not tell the other what to do but goes with them to make the journey better. It is to offer help and cheer the person on. Sometimes it is making sacrifices so the other is not alone.

In this issue, we invite students and families to EXPLORE ways that they can accompany others especially at the economic margins, APPLY scripture and teachings of the church to their call to live as a Missionary Disciple in today’s world, IDENTIFY actions to take as they walk with others, ENGAGE their families in growing relationships with people living in poverty.
