How and what can our library teams help equip our church and synagogue families to participate in preparations being made now in many of our communities for the arrival of 95,000 refugees?

We are putting together a book drive where church members can purchase a children's book from a list of farsi/english and arabic/english bilingual books. We will then wrap them and take them to a Christmas party being held at one of the refugee apartment complexes in Nashville. In addition to books, we will also include an encouraging word, Bible verse, and resources in the Nashville area to help them settle in such as ESL classes. The spritual goal of this is to show God's love and welcome them to our area. The physical goal is to give them a fun tool for both children and parents to work on their English.
We are so excited for this opportunity to involve our library in a missions project!
