He will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people...
We teach English to Somali refugees who fled Somalia due to the civil war. The students are male and female, young and old. We work on reading, writing, and grammar with the students. We start the day with prayer, inviting God's presence, then teach the students in a large group. We then break off into groups of 3-4. The students are hungry to learn English and succeed in America and teaching them is a great opportunity to share the love of Christ!
During Campus Evangelism we seek to speak God's message of encouragement and hope to the students. We break off into small groups and pray for students we meet, and if the opportunity arises, we share the Gospel! The hope is to sow the seeds of the Kingdom and tangibly show OSU students the love of Christ. The experience is always exciting and God never ceases to amaze us in the ways He works.
Adopt a Family
Adopt a Family is a partnership between GCC and CRIS (Community Refugee and Immigration Services); where we get to be God's hands and feet to refugee families from around the world. A team also greets them at the airport, helps them navigate the complexities of living in a new country, and learn a new language. Our church is currently collecting basic kitchen, bathroom and bedroom items to help the family have a new beginning in the US.
