In the aftermath of the election, there is much that remains uncertain, but it is fair to say that there will be some direct implications for our work. What we know for certain is that God has called us to empower the local church to serve immigrants and refugees, and the mission and work of World Relief is as relevant and necessary as ever.
World Relief remains completely committed to standing with immigrants and refugees and we believe that this is a crucial time for churches to demonstrate to immigrants, to refugees and to their local communities the spirit of welcome which should characterize the people of God. As we face the worst refugee crisis in modern history, we continue to seek new partnerships with churches, individuals and communities who seek to provide a welcome to refugees in America and solutions abroad.
Let’s pray for courage to answer that call faithfully,
- Luke Williams, Interim Executive Director, World Relief Seattle
