There will be 3 debriefing meetings in the spring and summer.
Fee includes 2 nights accommodation, 7 meals, local transportation, admin support and support for Tenth’s Refugee Response.
Justice Journey participants will not only receive the valuable experience of interacting with refugee families in our city, but will learn about the issues facing migrant families and experience some of the sobering stories of evacuation, uncertainty, and new beginnings.
The Lord defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing. And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt. [Deuteronomy 10:18-19]
