Study on Refugee Resettlement in New Hampshire

April 13, 2010

Bresca Gagnon, a CTR attendee who has been working on a project dealing with refugees, sent me the following link to a study done by UNH on the challenges of refugees settling here. The report is very long, but the synopsis at the beginning and some of the introductory findings are very insightful for those of us seeking ways to serve and reach people God is bringing us from around the world. Here’s the link:

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” (Matthew 25:35-36)
