Pressing On

Posted on in Community, Refugees.

I hope this post encourages you – especially those either working with or volunteering with Seek. I wanted to extend a brief note of thanks and praise to all the volunteers that work on a weekly basis with us. Your service to refugees is of the highest value and I see that playing out in two ways: 1. The direct service to those who have sought resettlement and refuge in this city. When you take their plight personally, and make the sacrificial decision to help, shelter, defend and restore the person or family that you serve – you, at that moment catalyze their transformation and begin to walk with them through the last leg of their refugee journey; and 2. The model you set for the rest of our community. Our goal is not only to serve, but also to usher the communities we are a part of to serve refugees, our city, nation and world. The world needs more people who are outward focused, rather than inward focused. We all thrive when we decide to put others before ourselves. So for all the hours you spend, along with the heart that goes into it, thank you.
