David

From Fugitive to King

David was a Shepherd boy, a Refugee, a Fugitive, a Composer and a King. When we spent time with refugees they told us their stories. Some stories were gruesome, bad, some were stories of desperation. Some of the refugees we spent time with, lost family members, belongings, hope. They were desperate, no jobs, no houses, no school for their children, no one caring. Others were still hopeful saying, “Maybe we will be able to go back, maybe we can start all over, maybe…”

They were so thankful that we came to them, listened to their stories, telling them that there are still people that care, praying for them.

Adam and Eve

“Now the man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all the living. The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them.  Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”- therefore the Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.” – Genesis 3:20-24 NASB

Did you know that Adam and Eve were the first refugees?

The very first refugees we know of in history, are Adam and Eve.

They became refugees because of sin, their own sin.

People become refugees because of sin. Most times it is because somebody else sinned. Somebody becomes greedy, or self centered or mean or cruel. Because of that sin, innocent people have to flee to be able to survive. God loves all people, refugees and others. He hates sin and the bad things people do, but He is love. Anybody may come to God to get forgiveness of sins. Write to us if you want to find forgiveness and if you want to find God.

Moses, a Refugee in the Bible

Moses, a Refugee in the Bible

Exodus 1:8-22

Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. He said to his people, “Look, the Israelite people are more numerous and more powerful than we. Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, or they will increase and, in the event of war, join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.” Therefore they set taskmasters over them to oppress them with forced labor. They built supply cities, Pithom and Rameses, for Pharaoh. But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread, so that the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites. The Egyptians became ruthless in imposing tasks on the Israelites, and made their lives bitter with hard service in mortar and brick and in every kind of field labor. They were ruthless in all the tasks that they imposed on them.

The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah, “When you act as midwives to the Hebrew women, and see them on the birthstool, if it is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, she shall live.” But the midwives feared God; they did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but they let the boys live. So the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and said to them, “Why have you done this, and allowed the boys to live?” The midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife comes to them.” So God dealt well with the midwives; and the people multiplied and became very strong. And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families. Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, “Every boy that is born to the Hebrews you shall throw into the Nile, but you shall let every girl live.”
