“I’m interested in a conversation with someone in leadership with IAFR about ways that [our] International [mission agency] may be of service in refugee ministry on a global level.”
We received this request via email today from the Director of Strategic Initiatives at a well-known international mission agency. We look forward to talking with them soon.
I also received an invitation today to speak at a large gathering of mission leaders from Latin America meeting in Mexico this November. They want a better understanding of the global refugee crisis and to explore ways that they can get more involved in ministry along the refugee highway – both in Latin America and beyond.
I’ve also been invited to join the Turkey Region of the Refugee Highway Partnership when they gather in November. Sadly, I can’t afford to go to both Turkey and Mexico in November – so I have decided on Mexico.
Earlier this week, Paul Sydnor, IAFR Europe Regional Leader, told me that he has been invited to South Korea to offer some refugee ministry training to churches there. There are apparently a few thousand refugees from Yemen in South Korea today.
And we’ve got about 30 people signed up to participate in our online webinar tomorrow (12 July) that will offer a Biblical Perspective of Forced Displacement. Click here if you would like to register and participate in this free 1:00 PM webinar.
I’m encouraged to see a growing number of Christians, churches and mission agencies wanting to engage with refugees and asylum seekers. I’m glad that IAFR is here to help!
