Many of us feel called to do our part to welcome the stranger; particularly as we witnessed the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and the massive US mission to relocate thousands of Afghan allies.
“I have never been a refugee but I have lived in a foreign country where I was all but illiterate. I feel very strongly that we are called as Christians and as a Minnesota church to provide help for families who are fleeing intolerable conditions in their homeland. “Kirsten Lincoln, Mission and Outreach Team Member
Mission and Outreach has been working to keep track of what is happening in our area. We have approved a $1000 gift to LSS Refugee Resettlement Services. LSS works closely with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services. Many of the refugees coming to MN through LSS will be resettled in Minneapolis or St. Cloud.
