“Today, I light a candle of prayer for refugees, seeking protection from religious, political, and any form of persecution. Since 1985, our region has been home to the Southwest Good Samaritan Ministries…(who) stand with those who are broken; especially among those who are refugees, and those who are disenfranchised and displaced.” — Rev. Andy Mangum, Christian Church in the Southwest Region.
See Andy’s video here. Then please consider joining your voice and your church’s to #Pray4Refugees–by sharing the video with your friends, and by tweeting and calling to national leaders in his region, such as these leaders from Texas who will be crucial in making the refugee decision: @JohnCornyn @SenTedCruz @Replouiegohmert @JudgeTedPoe @RepRatcliffe @LamarSmithTX21 and @JacksonLeeTX18.
Please also let your own legislators hear from you by calling to ensure that a number of only 30,000 refugees is NOT accepted! Instead, urge for the Administration to consult with Congress (through the Judiciary Committees) as is required. Tweet and call to communicate that faith voices continue to say, #RefugeesWelcome, and that we want to #Welcome75K!!!. Go HERE for more information.
Also contact @StateDept @SecPompeo @VP @Mike_Pence @POTUS @realDonaldTrump Ivanka Trump, @IvankaTrump @JimPressOffice to please #Pray4Refugees and use their leadership to #Welcome75K refugees in the US next year!
