Every year millions of people are forced to flee their home countries because of persecution based on race, religion, social group or political opinion. They arrive at refugee camps with no possessions and receive meager assistance. While at the camp, they can apply for legal refugee status. The United Nations then determines where to place them. Annually 3,000 of these refugees resettle in Iowa and Missouri.
God has promised us, in Isaiah 58, that if we give attention to the refugees among us He will pour His Spirit out upon us. Caring for these hurting people is not only a privilege, but it is our duty.
We have created a 9 min. video explaining this new Refugee Ministry. You can view and download this short video and the extended 30 min. version at www.vimeo.com/imsda.
