I’m packed and ready to head to Lille, France. We have a local ministry there that is opening a Centre that will serve as a safe space in which locals and refugees can connect in mutually beneficial ways.
A local French church is renovating a service garage and turning it into a ministry center. IAFR will begin leasing the space to use for refugee ministry in January.
One of the big challenges in the French context is finding spaces in which refugees and locals can meet. This Centre will serve that end.
We’re thankful that local churches see the value of creating this safe space in their community.
