[Korean] [Spanish] Tens of thousands of unaccompanied children are fleeing Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Many are arriving in the United States where it is expected that this nation will receive more than 60,000 children at the end of the fiscal year. The president has called the situation a humanitarian crisis. The federal agencies, Department of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services through the Office of Refugee Resettlement, are racing in a collaborative relay to answer the need. As a father and grandfather, I am struck by the photos of children playing and sleeping in overcrowded holding facilities in Arizona and Texas. I grieve for their parents as I try to imagine the moment their children left on the difficult journey to another country and the depth the poverty, violence, and abuse their children must have been suffering to allow them to go. I know that God went with the children on their journey. Though subjected to harm and often in the hands of smugglers, these children are alive and in the U.S. because of the prayers of parents and friends and persons like you and I, who read about them and knew they were coming though we did not know their names. In the Presbyterian tradition, the congregation as a whole covenants with a family to nurture their children in the faith. We look after one another’s children. We corporately tend to their safety and growth. The children arriving at our borders are no less in need of nurturance and no less bearing the likeness of God. Please take time to read the following facts about this crisis and prayerfully discern with your household and your congregations how you can offer nurturance to these children who have arrived in need of our care.
