Our Church is pleased to support CBF Global Missions in moments like these where bearing witness to Jesus Christ takes place through cultivating beloved community in Uganda. God doesn't just call us to live in community, but in beloved community. That means we welcome everyone. The world is currently facing the largest refugee crisis in history. Since WWII there have never been this many refugees. Uganda has political refugees coming from over 9 different countries to seek asylum, with over 2,000 refugees a day entering the country. CBF supports us here in our ministry by allowing us to be beloved community to these refugees entering our country. Christ wants us to be welcoming and beloved community, because if people can't find the community inside the church, then I don't know where else they're going to go. - Jade and Shelah Acker, CBF field personnel in Uganda
