Help Tangibly

Horrific numbers represent real hurting people. 82.4 million people were forcibly displaced by the end of 2020. 1 out of 100 people in the world are unable to sleep in their own bed or have their children go safely to their own schools. This the highest amount ever recorded and continues to grow. 26.4 million of those are refugees, forced out of their country, and half are under the age of 18. 

God cares deeply about this suffering "The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God" (Leviticus 19:33-34). 

These precious suffering ones are now our neighbors. We have the privilege of welcoming them and helping them adjust.
