In my life it was a great privilege to work as a missionary in Ethiopia for eleven years. I ministered in a prison for six of those years. One of the projects that we started was a way for prisoners to express themselves through painting. It was always a great joy to watch the artists at work and a privilege to see that through their art they engaged with their prison world. Art also allowed them to engage with issues outside the prison. Migration was one such issue.
