Have you ever moved to a place where you did not know anyone? I have had the experience of moving to a new place where I did not know anyone, and finding my way around was hard enough. I already knew the language, used the same currency, and was familiar with the grocery store chains. When I think of refugees with all of the changes and transitions they have to make when they go to a new country, it must be overwhelming for them. Then add to this the trauma they went through that caused them to leave their country. The physical and emotional needs are great.

Extending the Story: Always Remember to Pray

Preschooler praying

One of our purposes in Mission Friends is to teach preschoolers about prayer and lead them to pray for missions. Always Remember to Pray  is a great tool to use to help preschoolers learn that they can talk to God at any time and in any place. As you teach preschoolers about missions, this leads to opportunities to pray with preschoolers. They learn about prayer as they hear the needs of other people and hear prayer requests of missionaries.
