Refugees and the New Lives They Build
What does it mean to be a refugee? Where do most refugees come from, and where do they go? Ruth Goring will introduce her story Adriana's Angels as a springboard for learning about--and welcoming--refugees and asylum seekers.
Adriana's Angels is also published in Spanish (Los ángeles de Adriana), so this visit can be carried out in English, Spanish, or Spanglish!
Note: The story emphasizes God's constant love for Adriana, mediated through a pair of guardian angels, but it doesn't take a sectarian point of view.
Appropriate for one child, a small group, or a school or Christian education class.
