We had our Arrive Ministries of Richfield, MN tote pick-up today at the DCIH Workshop. Laura has recently taken Rebekah’s (our previous connect person) position at Arrive Ministries….so this is our first meeting with her. She comes to Arrive Ministries from another state….but has 7 years of experience in refugee work. She has a wealth of knowledge and it was interesting to hear how refugee work crosses the state lines….and all agencies are somewhat the same and connected.
 
Here are some photos of today’s Arrive Ministries tote pick-up.

Here are some photos of our delivery to Arrive Ministries yesterday. Had a very nice talk, the Arrive Ministries Communications Director did an interview with me….and I learned more about the refugee process. This is an amazing learning process for me…. as I learn about the process that the families go through, and the processes of the resettlement offices. The more I learn….the more my passion for this work intensifies.

Enjoy the photos!
