Naser is a refugee twice removed. First, due to the genocide in Darfur, he fled to South Sudan. Then as South Sudan broke into war, he had to flee and seek refuge in Uganda. Incidentally, while in South Sudan, he heard of Jesus, and his life changed forever.
The first time I visited a refugee camp, I met Garing. He was an older man with many children, a refugee from Darfur. He was also a Muslim Background Believer (a Christian who converted from Islam).
Garing’s story was one of grace and abundance amid struggle.
This offertory was different from most that I had seen, and it caused me to consider how the church should work. Maybe there is something here for all of us to learn.
