Building Bridges: Sharing God’s Love with Refugees

For people in America, it’s hard to imagine what living in Afghanistan is like. After Afghanistan’s Taliban takeover in 2021, children were in constant danger, so many families fled to the US. Many of these refugees came to Clarkston, Georgia. They are grateful for safety and a new start—and for education.

In Afghanistan, education opportunities are scarce, and girls are allowed to go to school only up to age 12. These children’s parents highly value education and are thankful for schools in the US. But many of these refugee families live in poverty, so they can’t purchase school supplies and other necessities that children need.

These refugee families also need the hope and love of Jesus. Most of these families know nothing about Jesus. One girl said she didn’t even realize there were religions other than Islam before she came to America!

Enter a golden opportunity to reach Afghans for Christ! By helping Afghan children in Clarkston get school supplies they need, relationships are created, building bridges to families’ hearts. When a relationship is formed, people are often willing to consider the gospel.

Every $150 could provide
    •    high-quality backpacks for four refugee children,
    •    other school supplies for refugee children,
    •    and opportunities to share the message of God’s limitless love!

When you make Building Bridges: Sharing God’s Love with Refugees your VBS missions project, Afghan children and parents will see God’s love in action and discover the good news of Jesus!
