Mentors & Sponsors Needed!
Are you ready for a cross cultural experience right here in the Tri-Cities? Refugee mentorship for individual volunteers and sponsorship for group volunteers is a wonderful way to share the love of Christ with people from around the world coming to the United States to escape persecution.
Quiet but Brave
At her upstairs apartment in Kennewick, Washington, Fardowsa greeted us at the door - a young Somali lady, tall, dressed in a flowery hijab. She invited us into the living room of the apartment she shares with her mother, Rukiya, who was seated on the carpet and covered with a pile of blankets in the chill of Feburary. Their home is simple, only a small couch along the wall in the living room, a few rugs and mats to provide more seating on the carpet, but they smiled at our arrival and welcomed us in from the cold.
