Cape Town Refugees

Cape Town Refugees

Continue to pray for refugees who choose to live in poverty in South Africa instead of in war in their home countries.  Many have never lived in a place where the military is not fighting against a group within their country.  To live in a country where there is relative peace allows them to experience a bit of the Promised Land.  There are hardships, though, being away from their home country.  Most refugees come to South Africa not knowing how to speak English.  Some have work credentials that cannot be transferred for use here; thus, they are without jobs.  Refugees in South Africa are constantly aware that xenophobia (hatred of people from other countries for fear they will take the few jobs that are available) is almost always on the minds of South Africans.  What can God offer them?  Through your contributions, workers are able to teach them English so they can talk in their adopted country and so they can apply for jobs.  With English they can go to the doctor and be understood.  Also, in these English classes, Gail uses the Good News to teach them a language and of the Gospel.  Eventually they read it for themselves in the Bibles given to them.  Please pray for these people who are also near to the Father’s heart that they would hear and understand the Word, that they would learn English and find employment, and that they and their families would survive in a new country.
