Refugee Resettlement

The Good Neighbor Team

Starting in the Spring of 2016, families from First Pres served with World Relief to welcome the Mustafa family, refugees from the Congo. On Labor Day, our First Pres Good Neighbor Team hosted a picnic with the Mustafas and several other local Congolese refugee families. During that time, several of the GNT members shared their experience of serving with refugees, and the Mustafas took some time (with an interpreter) to say thank you to First Pres! Check out the video to learn more and hear the Mustafas share their hearts.
