At the end of a quiet and unassuming neighborhood street in Pontiac, Michigan, a red-brick church stands forlorn. No sign indicates whether the tired building continues to hold Sunday-morning services; however, it respectfully stands erect. It’s here that I met Misa Mi on a warm October morning last fall.
