This morning is beautiful. As the sky clears and the sun rises over camp, the air seems to be filled with renewed hope and a sense of promise.
This is the first time we have worked in camp when it wasn’t dark or enveloped in fog, so maybe that is why it seems different. But I would like to think that the difference is in the refugees themselves: a sense of anticipation and hope they haven’t felt before; that maybe they will actually make it?
Or maybe some of them feel the love of the crazy people who care enough about them to choose to stand in the chilly pre-dawn hours and give them what they need for the next leg of their journey.
In November 2015, a team of eight Virginia Baptists spent time with Croatian Baptists, serving refugees as they continued their journey in search of peace and provision for their families. Read and see more about their journey.
