An update from the Ohio Conference Immigration Resource Team:

  • Please keep in your prayers our many immigrant neighbors who are at greater risk of infection with COVID-19 — those in crowded detention centers, meat packing plants, etc. Consider a donation to Open Arms Hispanic Ministry or Brazo en Brazo, who are working directly with this population.
  • Here is a must-read, hot off the press: The House that Love Built by Sarah Jackson. This book is the gripping story of a young Christian woman in Denver who was moved with compassion for immigrants in a local detention center. She opened her apartment to out-of-town families who were visiting loved ones in the detention center. Her actions have developed into a ministry that has grown to more than a thousand volunteers and its own hospitality house — Casa de Paz.
