Attention Treasure Hunters!

Each week several boxes of craft supplies, art supplies, and several sewing machines are donated to help support our ministry. These gifts are wonderful, but do require that someone have the understanding and expertise to sort and find the treasures within.

So, we need a woman to be our Donations Specialist to come in […]

Volunteer for Summer Feed and Read Program!

We had so much fun last summer bringing books, crafts, and activities to kids! Each week we served alongside our team of great volunteers to not only serve lunch, but also to entertain, inspire and educate.

We get to do it again this summer and we need your help to be the hands and […]

Summer Volunteer Opportunity – Refugee Kids’ Story Time

This summer, each Wednesday afternoon in July, we’ll be taking a team of volunteers to a Nashville apartment complex where hundreds of refugee children are wasting away their summer hours playing video games and watching TV.

Our goal is to change that.

We’ve picked out four classic children’s stories and will share one each week.  We will […]

Summer Volunteer Opportunity – Refugee Kids Lunch Program

This summer, we are going to help run a feeding program at a Nashville apartment complex where hundreds of refugee families live. We will be providing lunch for 100-200 children each Wednesday and need your help!

Doing Everything and Nothing

Everything and Nothing
Today, I did everything and nothing. That’s what keeps running through my head as I reflect back on my first day. I can’t possibly put into words what it was like – pictures, videos, things you read before you come – nothing described it the way I experienced it. And listening tonight […]

Walk and Talk Update from Director Dave!

Our recent “Walk and Talk” program was a great success.  Over 20 volunteers from local churches joined us to share some exercise, conversation, and much-needed friendship with our refugee friends from Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Afghanistan, Sudan, and Somalia.

As I watched these women smile and laugh together, I was deeply moved and reminded of my […]

Heeding the Call to Love in 2001

Heeding the Call to Love in 2001
This was a seminal year in our country, to say the least. What happened in September of 2001 colored forever the way we walk in our world, even think of our world. A large part of that came from the faith of the perpetrators. It has been argued […]

For the Love of Sport

From one of our short-term team members, Brian Haney, Maryland:

One of the highlights of the trip was getting to play soccer with the boys for most of the day one day. As a former soccer player, I was floored to do this. Soccer itself is the universal sport and language. Just seeing the excitement […]
