Refugees Find Freedom, Welcome at Boise Church
A church in Boise, Idaho started a ministry to welcome refugee families to the U.S. Members of Cathedral of the Rockies First United Methodist Church help with practical issues like English tutoring and paperwork but also make the families feel welcome in the community. One young couple invited a family to stay in their home while permanent housing could be arranged. Church members say the refugee program has built new friendships and brought the church family closer too. “Helping refugees isn’t a political issue, it’s a discipleship issue,” says church member, Cindy Todeschi.
