For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ (Matthew 25:25-36)
Persecution and conflict in the Middle East has created a refugee crisis of epic proportions. Families are fleeing their home countries in fear. Refugees usually leave home with little more than what they can carry. Their needs are severe. They have desperate physical needs in addition to emotional and spiritual needs. We believe an appropriate response to this crisis is to be vessels of GOOD NEWS. We want to respond by GOING to serve both those who are in need and those who are already serving those who are in need.
