The discussion was tremendously fruitful and I look forward to seeing what develops from here. Some of the ideas that came forward including planning dedicated times of prayer and fasting, getting more education about these issues as a group, hosting fundraising and awareness events, and sending mission teams and even full-time missionaries from our church. Little attention was paid to the fact that the ones having the conversation were mere refugees and thus typically considered unable to even attempt such things. The belief was firm that with God's help, we could accomplish anything.
Now, I want to simply share some of the photos from our time. These are some of the coolest photos:
|Ganesh leading a conversation about Human Trafficking|
|Dikura explaining the concept of Unreached People Groups to members of UPGs|
|"Round-Robin" Style Conversations on Global Issues|
|Krishna explaining how HIV/AIDS & poverty are connected|
|UPGs praying for UPGs|
