World Refugee Day
Today, World Refugee Day, we encourage you to stop and remember with us, the strength, courage, and plight of refugees, especially those across our beloved African continent.
The numbers of displaced people are rising every year and have hit staggering record highs. South Sudan alone now has approximately 2.3 million people scattered across Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya, and the DRC. Stats show that one person is displaced every 2 seconds!
The tragedy is that more than half of these refugees are children. This is the highest number of child refugees since World War II. Many of these children are forced to flee their countries alone.
Their needs are overwhelmingly many, but there is one way that we, TOGETHER, can make a HUGE DIFFERENCE in their lives.
These children desperately need to know they have a Heavenly Father who loves them. Can you imagine the life change if they were given the opportunity to learn about God and His love for them!
We have Bible study leaders in the refugee camps that can teach these children using our fun Discover 4 Yourself Inductive Bible studies written especially for children. Through these studies, they will learn basic Bible study skills that will set them up for a lifetime of discovering God’s Word.
Learning God’s truths at a young age will help them escape the bondage of bitterness and hatred that so many adult refugees are plagued with. During times of great fear and despair, they will be empowered with the truths learned and will be filled with comfort and peace, despite their circumstances.
Won’t you partner with us in providing these children with their greatest need, an opportunity to know God deeply?
A gift of R70 will provide one refugee child in Africa with a resource that will help start them on their life-transforming Bible study journey.
Be the voice for these forgotten children and SHARE this unique opportunity with others.
