Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2
Our church works directly with Refugee Services of Texas to welcome and orient newly arrived refugee families. This includes furnishings for an apartment for the arrival of a family, and continuing to assist them in their first months as they learn English, get jobs, and get acclimated to schools, food, medical care, and customs.
