Answering God’s call to work with refugees in Greece

Mission co-worker Nadia Ayoub believes her call to serve refugees is rooted in her own experience of being a stranger in the many places she has called home.

Matthew 25 Church
Support mission co-workers

"Should we stay or should we go?" was the question that many of our international mission co-workers and Young Adult Volunteers (YAVs) had to answer. The Emergency Response Team of the Presbyterian Mission Agency met daily to evaluate the rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe and decided to close the international YAV sites for the remainder of the current YAV year (through July 2020). World Mission brought all the YAVs home and gave our mission personnel the option to either shelter in place or come back to the United States. Some stayed. Others returned, particularly those who were at high risk. Thank you for your support in bringing our international mission personnel home. We appreciate your ongoing support through contributions to our General Missionary Support fund. Thank you for your continued prayers, partnership and support, especially during this perilous and unpresented time.
