      Belize 2 Greece

      Friends and folks in the Tigertown and Paris area. We are excited to see you. This 5K was organized for Clara Wolfe's upcoming trip to Greece mission with I58 in March 2020. YOU DO NOT need to run the whole 5k but can walk and jog it as you can:). We will start @10 am with a 5K and there will be a bake sale as well as raffles going on. Arturo's Pollos has generously agreed to sponsor lunch and the proceeds will go to the cause as well. 'What exactly is this tGreece mission about?' I'm glad you asked.  I58 responded to the European Refugee Influx Crisis in 2016 when ISIS was at its peak in the Middle East. Since then the torrent of desperate people, escaping hell on earth for a sanctuary in Europe, has not slowed down. In fact, Moira Camp on Lesvos Island in Greece is currently one of the largest refugee camps housing over 12 thousand people, making it one of the most notorious camps in Europe. I58 now runs a community center where families with children feel safe. This is also where we host Bible Studies in French, Farsi and Arabic and a church service on Sunday morning. Many have converted to Christianity through an i58 volunteer being the hands and feet for Jesus. The harvest truly is ripe, but the laborers are few. I have served in Moria Camp as the caretaker for the single women section in camp in 2017. Many have lost family members, escaped trafficking, and are extremely vulnerable for being retrafficked. We work closely with organizations that help them find a safe place and provide counsel. Lord willing, I plan to go back March 2020. Pray that I would have wisdom as I navigate these plans and prepare to minister to a people who are in traumatized beyond measure and desperate for hope.
