For most of us the holidays are busy, chaotic, and seem to fly by, but for others, like immigrants who have no family to share the holidays with, it is a lonely season. The Well is an EFCA church in the city that ministers intentionally to immigrants. Worku, the pastor, also started Rise Together Ministries which provides tutoring, counseling, clothing and host of programs to help families.

Saint Louis is a city of broad diversity. It is the Gateway City – and each year, the city welcomes close to 4000 new immigrant, refugee, and transient residents.┬áMISSIODEI has a wonderful opportunity to serve people from distant cultures without booking a flight or even leaving our own zip code. The Well has asked our church family to invite immigrant families into our homes for a meal during these busy holidays.

Would you be interested in spending the evening with Christians from a completely different culture? If so, please contact Mike to schedule a meal. I’m pretty confident your entire family will be blessed by the experience.
