Giving Thanks – North Texas

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all the ways the Lord has shown His faithfulness in our lives. Some of our North Texas staff reflect on what they are thankful for this season.

I’m thankful for our Afghan refugees sharing their lives and stories with us. I have learned so much from their resilience and fight.


I’m thankful for my church community.


I am thankful for Fort Worth! I moved here in may, so I am thankful my transition here has been easy and that I work with amazing people who encourage me every day!


I’m grateful right now for the unity and integrity of my Match Grant coworkers.


I am thankful for the many churches in the DFW area passionate about vulnerable refugees and immigrants.


I’m thankful for a season of exciting things both at World Relief and in our family as we move to a new house.


I am thankful for the new season of life the Lord has gifted me with…marriage and a new family.


I am thankful for this job. It was a huge answer to prayers! I am so happy to have the opportunity to assist refugees and be a neighbor to them.


I am thankful for our family’s good health.


I am thankful to be able to have a friend in Jesus Christ everyday and for the moments I’ve been gifted with my husband and family. I am grateful for World Relief staff, who truly care and go beyond duty to serve and love on others. As a 10-year old immigrant girl, I was greeted with smiles from American people, saying “Hola amigo!,” and for that I am forever thankful.


I am thankful that the Lord has given me a platform to share the process of a refugees journey and advocate for those who are vulnerable.


I’m thankful to be a part of an organization that is truly living out what it looks like to care and love the stranger! I am also thankful for the upcoming Advent season and treasuring it with my family!


I’m thankful to be a part of this World Relief and North Texas Community that cares deeply for families in vulnerable situations. I’m grateful that time and time again team members, churches, and volunteers are coming forward with open, humble hands seeking ways to love one another and the women, men, and children who are simply looking for a place to belong.
