We have all seen and heard about the challenges and opportunities with refugee children and families at our borders. We have a Bethel member who will be driving down to these areas of Texas and sharing supplies that we are collecting. At the McAllen, Texas site, here’s how we can help: Children’s books (bilingual if possible), picture books, puzzles less than 500 pieces and soccer balls.
The other sites at the shelter in El Paso need: travel bags, hygiene products, non-perishable food products, such as bars, fruit juices, diapers and new underwear.
Sometimes it feels like we cannot make a difference, but we can with God’s help and heartfelt commitment and plan of action. Let’s join together to be the church in action with our brothers and sisters in Christ who are trying to provide a quality of life for their children just as we desire for our families.
We will set up an area to collect these items by the signup clipboards in the narthex.
Thank you for partnering in living out the freedom we have in Christ and living out the Good News Gospel message for all people!
