Edwin Chacon, an asylum seeker from Honduras, gets help navigating the Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas, from Cindy Johnson, a United Methodist deaconess. Johnson helps transport immigrants on behalf of the Posada Providencia in San Benito, where Chacon, 18, stayed for several days after being released by immigration authorities pending a judicial hearing on his asylum request. He was on his way to stay with a relative elsewhere in the United States.<br />

Sponsored by the Catholic Sisters of Divine Providence, the Posada Providencia provides a safe place for people in crisis from all over the world who are seeking legal refuge in the United States.
