We are living in epic times. The disruption of nations and the relocation of people is the largest in history. The UN Refugee Agency reported that in 2014 59.5 million people worldwide were displaced. "Globally, one in every 122 humans is now either a refugee, internally displaced, or seeking asylum. If this were the population of a country, it would be the world’s 24th biggest." And, as we all know, many are landing here in San Diego. Jesus said to his disciples: "Go into all the world..." The truth is we no longer have to go very far.
This week's speaker is Jim Scott, Associate Director of Foursquare Missions International. You will find his reflection encouraging, empowering, and challenging. We live in times of great opportunity.
In response to Sunday's message we are encouraging donations to the Alliance for African Assistance which works with refugees from Africa and the Middle East. You can make a contribution through our website. On the giving form under missions select "Relief Missions" and 100% of what you donate will be given.
You can also give directly to the Alliance, here.
