The Entertaining Angels Discussion on Immigrant Communities drew over 70 people to Worthington UMC on September 28. Participants learned more about the difference between immigrants and refugees, the life of refugees prior to coming to this country, the steps involved in coming to the United States, and statistics around immigrants in the Franklin County area. They also heard from Mr. Walid Ali, a refugee from Iraq who shared his story of being welcomed upon his arrival in this country by members of the Worthington UMC.
Participants were asked to make a committment to next steps in this ministry. If you'd like more information on how you or your church can become involved, please contact Rev. Karen Cook, kcook [at] wocumc.org, 614-222-0602.
