When you think of refugees, it’s hard not to think of Ukrainians. But they are not alone. My son, Patrick, made me aware of huge numbers of refugees from Myanmar who have entered Indonesia where he lives.

CRF has helped these refugees in their difficult situation. We have given them sleeping mats, blankets, fans, food, water, and toilets. They are learning not only the local language but also seeing the gospel in action.

But the problems of refugees are not just a long way away in Romania or Indonesia. No, refugees from all over the globe have come to where I live in Amarillo (and where you live) which makes it so important to remember what the Bible says about refugees, foreigners and strangers.

Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.

Hebrews 13:1-2

May we remember today that the world’s refugees are as brothers and sisters in Christ. May we be motivated to care for them, to pray for them, and to offer hospitality to them. May we know that the Lord is their refuge as well, and that He is ever present with them, just as He is with us.
