Don’t take advantage of poor or needy workers, whether they are fellow Israelites or immigrants who live in your land. - Deuteronomy 24:14 (CEB)
As a volunteer with new refugees coming into my state, I am heartbroken when I hear so many stories of unscrupulous people taking advantage of them. I wonder how I can help them, even if my energy and time are limited. I met Aung Lin and his daughters last fall...
Every day I can depend on God to show me someone in need.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
