Welcoming the stranger: working with global communities, locally.
"...when did we see you a stranger and welcome you in? Truly, i say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these, you did it to me." Matthew 25:38, 40
A Heartfelt Thanks!
Thank you to those of you who attended our Glocal Garden Fundraiser. We had a great time together, hearing first from Perry and Brenda Jansen, former Global workers to Malawi, and then watching the movie, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. What a beautiful movie of using your gifts and persevering to help those in your community. If you haven't watched it, it is available on Netflix. We also had some great craft items that were available for a donation. Thank you to Brian Phillips, Nancy Hook, Dick Knight, Linda Blamire and Richard Herdegen for making those available. We raised just over $2000 which covers 40 of the 53 garden plots. We would still like to see full coverage of the water needs, so if you didn't get a chance to come to the fundraiser, you can still give via the Donate to Glocal button below. In the scroll down menu, click on Glocal Gardens. I hope those of you who live in Boise will drop by the garden during the summer months to see the hardworking gardeners and their beautiful plots! God is so good in His constant provision for Glocal and the people we work with!
I wanted to remind those of you in Boise that there is a conference March 6 and 7 for those interested in outreach. One of the tracks will be for those working with people who have come as refugees. March 6 - 5:30-6:30 Refugee 101 - Nick and Laura Armstrong
March 7 - 10:30-11:30 Refugees: Trauma Informed Workshop - Annaliese Jacobsson and Jenny Lundberg
March 7 - 12:30-1:30 Reaching the Unreached - James S.
March 7 - 1:45-2:45 Panel of Churches Hosting Refugee Congregations - Facilitated by Nick and Laura (3 Churches will be represented and talking about their journeys)
For those of you who want to brush up on being Trauma Informed, I would strongly suggest coming to the 10:30 workshop on Saturday morning. We have been wanting to do an update/refresher for those of you engaged with friends who most likely have a traumatic past. Please come, even if you can only make it to one of the workshops.
