As we enter into a holiday season that celebrates hope and new opportunities, we’d like to invite you to join us in bringing this to thousands who currently are struggling just to survive. The next immediate phase of our journey to serve refugees alongside the churches in Italy is a trip this February to participate in the Refugee Highway Partnership Roundtable and travel to several towns to visit with churches and refugees who have a need for our assistance. This trip will last 2-3 weeks and the funds needed are $6,900. Can you help us make this happen? (Scroll down for donation details.)
As we have driven across a large part of the U.S. over the last few months, we’ve had the opportunity to meet with many people as well as church and missions leadership. A common question with regard to the refugee crisis that has been a hot news item for many months now is, “How can we help?” Often the media leaves us without answers. We are grateful that we can offer ways to help by coming alongside churches – refugee and local – who are on the front lines of this crisis. At this critical time, our role is to assess the needs specific to the Italian churches and the refugee churches in the camps in Italy, learn from what others in Europe are doing to assist refugees, and help shape the plan for our work in Italy.
As you plan your holiday or year-end giving, will you please make a donation to this important visit with these churches and ministries? It’s quick and easy. Click here and then select “Kolditz” under the dropdown menu on the Missionary line.
