Hearing From God

How I Got Started

Being involved in Middle Eastern refugees lives is a fairly recent occurance. It was late in 2016 and I was pastoring a church, minding my own business when doing my daily Bible reading  when I came across a verse I had read many times. I have used a daily Bible reading schedule for several years,  but this day was going to be different. Psalm 82:3-4 says defend the poor and the fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy; deliver the poor and the needy; free them from the hand of the wicked. That day my heart broke for refugees and I began to pray about what God wanted me to do. After a couple of weeks of prayer I felt like this refugee work was bigger than our church and that I should dedicate my life to refugees. A few weeks later a word from the Lord came through a young lady at our church. She spoke to me to let me know the word from the Lord was this, "He's got this, trust Him!" I continued to drill down on my prayer time and one night, unbelievably, miraculously, Jesus appeared to me in a dream and spoke these words to me, "this is the work I have for you and I will open the doors." With that I applied for and received approval from the US Home Missions department to begin serving Middle Eastern refugees in the metro Detroit area. We were appinted to our mission by AGUSM in March 2019.

Where We're Going

Our Next Steps

Every great plan starts with the first step. Thankfully, we are already on our way through the first few steps of our plan to help Middle Eastern Refugees through a trecherous time in their lives. We are establishing real, personal relationships with families from several Middle Eastern countries. Our goal is to establish Center for these families to gather and have their material, emotional, and spiritual needs met. Our plan is to live out Jesus with them and reveal Him to the world.
