Mission Bite #54: God was at work

"Last February, our church considered turning our Youth House into a Refugee Ministry but realized that we neither had the financial resources nor the manpower. However, conferences with the Wyatts and local pastors convinced us that with partnerships we could do this. God was at work, and all he needed was our willingness to join him. After the unanimous vote in July to offer up our Youth House, an avalanche of workers descended upon the deteriorating house and turned it into a warm, welcome home for "the least of these" coming to our shores. We are now partners in ministry, offering up what we have for God's use to benefit those who come to our country to make a new life for themselves."
