Eternal Impact

On June 6, a group from the Georgia Baptist Convention came out to Clarkston for a day. Their goal was to learn more about the refugees in the area and discover their needs. The group of about 20 people split up into five groups to go house visiting with the interns. Each of them got a chance to see first-hand what the major needs of the area are. Some visited houses of RTN’s church members, while others visited the homes of people of other religions. Regardless of the ethnicity or religion of those they visited, each member of this GBC group learned a lot about what goes on in Clarkston and what life is like when a refugee first arrives from their home country. God really worked through them, though they only spent a few hours with the refugees. They built relationships that will not soon be forgotten. RTN is grateful for the investment this group made in the lives of the refugees, and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
