What are donors saying about this campaign?



WHY WELCOME KITS?

During the past several weeks we’ve encountered many stories of people who have walked weeks to escape the violence and/or persecution in their home country. Many haven’t slept in days, nor have they had access to a shower. Countless journey with their children who haven’t had an actual meal or water to stay hydrated. Along with the physical needs of these immigrant families, there is so much trauma and emotional pain they are facing. Though such needs are foreign to some of us, they are real to the immigrant individuals and families we are encountering.

To help meet some of these needs, we are partnering with local organizations who are providing services to families in need. Our welcome kit will help provide emotional and spiritual support, and meet immediate physical needs for many immigrant families and asylum seekers currently in transition on the South Texas and Mexico border.

THE Opportunity

Join us in our on-going campaign. Asylum-seeking families are arriving in the thousands. Local shelters are overfilled and in the last few weeks, there's been 1,000+ families every single day in shelters we support.

Our welcome kits provide basic necessities to families who have been forced to leave their homes because of human conflict or violence. We’re so grateful for your interest in providing welcome kits to families in need.

WHY BIBLES?

As much as we care about providing and meeting the physical needs of immigrants, we also care about their spiritual well-being. We truly believe that the Gospel provides hope and redeems the most broken people. We have the opportunity to have a holistic approach to meeting immigrants physical and spiritual needs.
