Being responsive when God opens doors with refugees

Leisa McDonald of Matthew House shares how God provided information and opportunity, step by step, following God’s leading, to reach refugees who have landed here locally. “We are working with the Afghan community as well as other families that we’ve been supporting prior to that, we do language programs for adults and tutoring programs for children; those are opportunities for people to step into to get involved.” Leisa continues, “We’re serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you have time in your morning, afternoon or evening, in the Phoenix area, the food is provided, it’s simply getting food into the hands of the people who are in need.” Leisa continues, “As these families move into the community, our goal is to subsidize through private funding until they’re stabilized and can afford that on their own.” www.matthewhouseaz.org
