Visiting refugees in transit helps raise awareness of the issues facing displaced people, informing your opinion of migration. This is a fantastic opportunity to help you think through how you can get involved with migrants in your local community. The mission awareness weekends are run by run by World Outreach International & the International Association for Refugees.
What will you do?
Initial briefing takes place in London, including the Crossing-Cultures workshop. Early the following morning the team will drive over to Calais to meet and chat with refugees from across the globe whilst helping humanitarian aid projects with food and clothes distribution.
The team will gather each day for prayer and a Bible study on the topic of migration and refugees. The focus of the weekend is to listen to stories, be inspired by God’s love for the nations, and challenged to be an advocate for refugees both globally and locally.
