In 2016, there were 24 New Refugees every minute. People who are displaced are leaving everything that is familiar to them, most often to just survive extreme hardship. As Christians it is our duty to help those in need. To ignore the problem and put up walls creates an environment characterized by the hardening of the heart. We cannot be compassionate part of the time, we either are or we are not! It is time for Christians to stand up and be counted as part of the solution through the spirit of Christ that indwells us and not give place to the powers of the world! 2017 will be a year of change! As a Brother in Christ, I implore you to pray for guidance and look for ways you can help make a difference for good to the Glory of God!
