The Faces of Refugees

This weekend we housed a couple who are refugees from Nepal.  They now live in Clarkston, Ga and the Clarkston International Bible is ministering to them.  They came from intense persecution for their ethnicity and religion in Bhutan.  Most of the people visiting were Hindu but some were Christian but all were exiled to Nepal.  The UN set up 5 refugee centers around the world and 1 is in Clarkston, Ga.  They wanted to come and see what the fall colors look like.  Our church, Hendersonville First Baptist
has partnered with CIB and is ministering to the refugees as well.  We have taken mission trips to Georgia but this weekend they came to us.  We took them hiking and fed them.  They visited our church on Sunday morning and lives were changed(mainly the Americans).  Here are some pictures of these lovely people.  I hope you enjoy:
