Many Afghan Refugees have moved into the Triangle Area over the past few months and more will arrive in the spring. These families are starting over. With Harnett County's large military population, your church likely has veterans that may have spent time in the Middle East. The men in the refugee group all served as interpreters for Special Forces, the Marines or Embassy personnel in Kabul. They were evacuated for their own safety and that of their immediate family, most arriving with wives and young children.

We have the opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate their personal sacrifice by helping meet their needs in Jesus' Name. Would you join us at LRBA by collecting Food Lion and Walmart Gift Cards and/or Uber Gift Cards which are used for work transportation? The LRBA Office will be collecting cards in February and March.

Here are a few other ways to get involved:
  • Pray for these families who have left everything behind.
  • Partner with a family and provide needed furnishings, clothing etc.
  • Partner with the families to build relationships through all of these means to lead to the Gospel being shared.

You can contact the LRBA Office at (910) 893-4282 if you have any questions or BSCNC Great Commission Catalyst Mike Sowers at msowers@ncbaptist.org.

Thank you in advance! We have already been able to provide Food Lion and Uber Gift Cards from an LRBA church just this week!
