We went to the Neighborhood House today. It’s a place where refugees and immigrants are taught English so they can function in our English speaking society. They even teach cooking in a modern kitchen and working with computers. They also have a food shelf. We spent a majority of our time talking with adult students.
In class we’ve been studying God’s concern for the oppressed. His word says, “When nations not having law do by nature the things of the law, even though they are not having law, they are a law to themselves. They show the work of the law written in their hearts.” Being God’s creation, we all have the law of his creation written on our hearts. A chief part of that law is helping your neighbor. This good work is being done by the Neighborhood House.
Personally, I would like to spend some time working there. To help people, especially families with children, in need is a good thing. Perhaps in doing that someone there might even be introduced to someone who can really help them. God knows neither I nor even the Neighborhood House can help them with all the struggles or forever.
