Cathy's Call to help Refugees
Organized by: Cathy Craig
I am stepping way out of my comfort zone but doing something that I really feel compelled to do. I am going to Jordan to help the Syrian and Iraqi refugees who have fled their homelands to escape turmoil and violence taking place in the region. I will be going with an equally motivated group of people from Refuge Calvary Chapel and we will be teaming up with organizations which are already established in Jordan in order to provide any assistance that is needed. My husband asked me what difference that I expect to make with the thousands of refugees and I reminded him of the story of the hundreds of star fish that had washed up unto the beach and a young boy throwing them back into the ocean one by one. When a man asked him what difference he made, the boy threw another star fish back and replied, "I made a difference to that one". That is what I hope to accomplish. I want to make a difference, even if it is only one person. Specifically, the monies raised well be used for food packages and water filters, with some going to help with transportation.
