The international refugee crisis is reaching epic proportions and Nashville, termed “the new Ellis Island,” receives large numbers of refugees each year. Once they arrive, however, they get very little transitional support. We reach out according to our specialties--biblical education and childbirth instruction. It just so happens that these two things are the very thing many refugees are in search of!
Bible studies are facilitated year round for refugees, but we also save a spot at our annual Bible Talk conference for refugee church leaders.
In addition, childbirth education, breastfeeding help, doula and translation services are a remarkable need in that we are grateful to offer, free of charge!
This holiday season, remember Jesus' parents own journey--traveling in a region not their own, unable to find a hospitable welcome at the most vulnerable moment of life: birth. By donating, you're partnering with us to offer the kind of hospitality that Jesus’ own mother deserved, but was not afforded.
When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God. Leviticus 19:33-34
