Mission Bite #86: Becoming Family

"Refugees come to our Southeast Asian country from other parts of South Asia. They are smuggled across multiple countries and left in the middle of an island jungle to fend for themselves. On arrival, they have no passport, no money and no common language.

When these young refugees find their way to our student ministry, they have spent several years in immigration detention centers. They are alone and they have no means of support and no opportunities for formal education.

Practicing beloved community in our context means becoming family to those who have none. Beloved community means sacrificially giving our time and our finances as we embody and share Christ's love."

- Brooke and Mike, CBF field personnel in Southeast Asia
