PRIVILEGE TO SERVE NEWCOMERS

During the hectic season of Passover, our outreach worker Barry noticed more refugees in the churches. After speaking at a service, a young Iranian man aged around 25 came up to the book table. Barry greeted him with Shalom Aleichem (peace be upon you), and the young man said it was the first time he'd met a Jewish follower of Jesus. His journey to Australia had started in Iran and then he lived in refugee camps in Jordan, which was a very harrowing experience. Eventually he sought asylum in Australia. Barry considers it a great privilege to meet with these extraordinary, newly-arrived people here in Australia.
