Sixty women and children from six nations and six churches gathered to celebrate two babies of refugee moms from Syria and Afghanistan. Events like this add to the work as we demonstrate the love of Jesus, provide a safe space for ladies to enjoy some food and fellowship. Thanks to all who contributed with gifts for the babies, food, tents and fun.
Thanks to all who contributed with gifts for the babies, food, tents and fun. Yes, there was a little culturally appropriate ladies-only dancing to the sound of some Persian music. There was also a reading from the Word of God and prayers for the babies and mothers. We shared delicious food along with many cups of tea in the open air on a beautiful day. Last Saturday at a Memphis hospital we welcomed one of these two babies!
“Hear my prayer, O Lord,
and give ear to my cry;
hold not your peace at my tears!
For I am a sojourner with you,
a guest, like all my fathers.” Psalm 39:12
