Refugee Family
Refugee Family
As a church, we have committed to sponsor this lovely family of 6 whom have suffered much hardship for their Christian beliefs. The father is an evangelist and he loves to share about his Savior. Since their country of origin is primarily Muslim, he suffered attacks and death threats to himself and his family from extremist groups causing them to flee for protection.   Having fled their home country due to this religious persecution, they landed into South East Asia and filed for refugee status. They entered the country on a valid visa but were forced to overstay as they had nowhere to go.  Canada became their only hope!  "Read More"

According to the AGCRI,  a Christian refugee service, the average startup cost of sponsoring a refugee family of 6 in Kelowna could be around $35,000.00.   We have a numerous advantages at New Life Church, because we have a number of pledged donations “in-kind.”   Nevertheless, we all need to help with cash pledges, according to our ability.   Currently, we have approximately $9000.00 in the fund.  We are now in a new fundraising initiative and our benevolent donor has generously offered to MATCH EVERY DOLLAR RAISED up to the next amount of $5000.00 .   So let’s aim to reach that goal of $5000.00 by the end of October, 2021.
An additional amount of $10,000 in this initiative would raise the total amount to approximately $19,000. $19,000 would represent only about half of what is required for the first year of settlement.   By God’s grace, let’s defy the odds and the Covid threat trusting God as we give.
