We are always looking for the gaps along the refugee highway - the places where the church still needs to show up in life-giving ways.
When we identify a gap, we step out and look for potential partners in the local context that share common vision and values with IAFR. We also begin praying that God will raise up people to pioneer and contextualize IAFR ministry in the location.
Locations that show up on this page have already been researched. There is also at least one IAFR missionary committed to serving in the location. In most cases, all we are praying and waiting for is another teammate or two to join her/him before setting out to pioneer IAFR ministry there.
Maybe that's you? Be sure to contact us if you're interested in learning more .
We have identified northwestern Italy as a region in need of an IAFR team to partner with local churches in helping asylum seekers as they pass through the region in search of safety and a place to belong.
The context is demanding as there are few services available to asylum seekers. They are not permitted to work and few have access to safe shelter, water, food and medical care. Social isolation compounds their challenges.
IAFR's Kelsey Briggs is preparing to serve in Italy. We're praying for 1-2 teammates to join with her before going out to pioneer this ministry location.
