When arriving in a strange country, a compassionate smile, a friendly gesture, a sincere offer to help can be some of the greatest blessings. Unfortunately, for many refugees, they will never experience these little acts of kindness from their new American neighbors.
It is estimated that less than 10% of the refugees living in St. Louis will ever be befriended by an American. However, through our friend-to-friend program, we connect American families to refugee families so that little by little, visit by visit, and family by family we reach out to our new neighbors and show them the love that Christ has shown us. Baby showers are also hosted for new moms to help with newborn needs and to bring encouragement to our refugee moms. This is a wonderful opportunity to interact with people of other cultures and ethnicities by visiting their homes and inviting them to yours. The world can truly be reached from your backdoor.
