THANK YOU College Mennonite Church family and friends for your continued assistance with our congregation’s resettlement ministry. It is always a privilege to watch families move into a house and make these spaces their new home. Such joy! Thank you for extending God’s love and grace through this ministry of hospitality.
Are you interested in helping with our clothing ministry for refugees? Please contact Jean if you’d like to give a little time during the week hanging new clothes and maintaining our “balcony boutique.”
The purpose of our clothes supply is to offer help to those families who have just arrived and are in need of a few changes of clothes. With so much the families have to maneuver upon arrival, giving them one less thing to try to figure out has been a blessing.
Household Goods Needs

be an ambassador
The Ambassador serves as the liaison between the furniture and household goods coordinators and the family during their move into a new home.
Most of the work involves texting in English (the family translates your texts into Spanish) Through texting, you introduce yourself as the church ambassador, and find out their available times for furniture delivery and what more is needed to set up their house. This allows the family to have one person they are connecting to for information. The Google translate app will help you translate their texts into English from Spanish. The WhatsApp app is the texting format our refugee families use. If you are ever in person, the SayHi app allows you to talk into your phone, and the Spanish translation is spoken immediately. It's like having your own translator right there with you!
For more information, contact Matthew Lind, or other ambassadors: Allen Peachy, Jane Short, Marilyn Graber, Phyllis Stutzman, Sue Neeb and Weldon Friesen.
