Daily, I have the rare and very special opportunity of teaching, living, and learning among refugees from over ten different countries. I teach them English, Bible stories, and different characteristics of cultures, but they teach me of things happening in the world that I never could have imagined . . . things that seem to “slip” the mind of the comfortable American. With people of so many nationalities, and even different tribes and languages within those nationalities, we are connected through faith and love. With faith at varying stages, we look forward to a brighter future for all by learning as much as possible and submitting ourselves to God. With love, we form one of the most diverse communities of the world and reach out arms for others to join. With faith in God and reciprocating love, we really do believe we can do anything, even if it means working up from the very bottom.
