While immigration may seem to many like a hot-button political topic, it is actually a chance for the Church to do what we are called to do—take care of those in need and extend unconditional love. Today, immigrants from around the world make up approximately 13% of the U.S. population and 20% of Canada’s. An estimated one in seven people who reside in the United States is from another nation, and millions of these immigrants have limited English proficiency.
You can make a difference in the lives of immigrants in your community—whether they are professionals, students or refugees. Use English as a Second Language classes to help meet immigrants’ basic needs and share the hope of the gospel with them.
