Welcoming Refugees

A group from Blacknall has been working with World Relief Durham to welcome two Syrian refugee families to Durham.  They arrived over a week ago and they have been deeply blessed by the outpouring of support and welcome that many of you helped to provide.  The two families are gradually beginning to get settled into their new lives as children began school this week and as the parents begin taking English lessons.

Many of us have been moved by the refugee crisis.  If you would like to respond, here are three simple ways:

Advocate: If you feel that our president’s executive order sends the wrong message about who we are as a nation, World Relief Durham has an advocacy page that encourages you to send an email to our elected representatives.  Click here if you are interested in responding this way.

Pray:  This Thursday, February 2, 7-8 p.m., World Relief Durham invites you to join refugees and those who stand with refugees for a time of guided and silent prayer. The time will be spent “seeking God’s face in light of the recent changes to the refugee resettlement program in America.” All are welcome, however, childcare will not be provided.  This will be at Cedar Fork Baptist Church, 5117 S. Miami Blvd, Durham.  If you can attend, please RSVP here.

Pray: World Relief Durham has a 24/7 Prayer Team.  You can click here to sign up to pray or to see prayer guides for prayer as an individual or as a small group.  Please include in your prayers our Good Neighbor Team and our two families.
