Who knew when Mission Hills began 3 years ago that a very special group of Burmese people could become such dear friends?!?! As before, this will include a special time of sharing the AMAZING things God is doing. Being new in a foreign land is never easy, yet we have much to celebrate how God’s providing is special ways.
Immigration is an emotionally charged topic that divides much of our country. Yet, there are beautiful stories we need to tell. Over the last two years, Mission Hills has developed a special friendship with a Burmese community in Austin. Their stories are humbling and courageous. They’re about finding a new life – out of necessity – in a new culture, learning new skills, and a new language. What began as ‘against all odds’ dreams, God is now authoring ‘ordinary miracles’ bookended with faith and good works. Let’s allow the power of story to heal, offer hope, and bring us together!
Reception to follow. Plan to linger longer!
