#FASTFORFAMILIAS

 

July 12th

Join us on Friday July 12 to fast and pray for immigrants being impacted by child detention! This will help us to prepare for participating in a movement called lightsforliberty.org where we will be gathering to stand against the inhumane treatment of children and families in detention.

From Abraham to Joseph, to Jesus Himself, the Bible portrays migration as a process that God uses to show His grace, to extend His love, care, and compassion to both immigrants and their host countries.

We've been fasting on Mondays since June 2018 in the spirit of our abuelitas (grandmothers).

Sign up and let us know if you are joining us this week as we prepare action. We are fasting for:

  • A plan to transition the thousands of detained children that are being held at federal detention camps-specifically for their safety and mental health.
  • Compassionate and humane treatment of those who are and seeking asylum and access to a port of entry for lawful application.
  • Churches to understand we are facing a humanitarian and international crisis that demands action.

¡Únase a nosotros el viernes 12 de julio para ayunar y orar por los inmigrantes afectados por la detención de niños! Esto nos ayudará a prepararnos para participar en un movimiento llamado lightsforliberty.org en el que nos reuniremos para enfrentar el trato inhumano de los niños y las familias detenidas.

La Biblia retrata la migración como un proceso en el Dios demuestra Su gracia, amor, cuidado y compasión a los migrantes y también a los países en los que son recibidos. Lo vemos en las historias de Abraham y José, y del mismo Jesús

Desde junio 2018 hemos estado ayunando todos los lunes así como nuestras abuelitas.

Regístrate y déjanos saber si nos acompañarás esta semana. Estamos ayunando y orando por:

  • Un plan de transición para los niños que continúan en campos de detención federal, específicamente por su seguridad y salud mental.
  • Un trato compasivo y humano para todos aquellos que están solicitando asilo y también por acceso a un proceso justo en los puertos de entrada.
  • Que las iglesias entiendan que estamos frente a una crisis humanitaria e internacional y que requiere de una acción colectiva.
