World Refugee Day

June 19th, 2018 by

Mary, Joseph and Jesus, fled for their lives to Egypt. Their refugee story is like many others in scripture — Jacob, Moses, David, Peter and John to name a few. The world is no stranger to those facing an unknown future: fleeing war, persecution and famine; struggling with fear, insecurity and trauma, all the while wondering where their next meal will come from and where they will lay their heads. Today, many refugees suffer without the hope and light that comes with the assurance of knowing Jesus Christ.

Each year, one day is set aside to remember the 23 million refugees among us. As partners with Global Teams, we invite you to join us on June 20 to pray for the many refugees who continue to flee their homes in search of safety and protection in another country and to lift up our field partners as they reach out with Christ’s hand of love.
