From “We lost” to “We arrived” – Refugees share their journeys

Every year, World Relief staff and volunteers help thousands of refugees – victims of war and persecution – replant their lives in the United States. With 24 offices across the U.S., World Relief is the biggest evangelical refugee resettlement agency in America.

World Relief has resettled more than 9,000 refugees in Minnesota since 1989. Here are a few of their stories:
