For 52 years World Compassion has worked to take the message of Jesus to nations hostile to the Gospel. Afghanistan has historically been one of our target nations. Over the past 12 years we have also helped facilitate a movement in the Tulsa area called Unite My City – an effort to build a culture of unity among churches through relationship, prayer, worship and service.
This collaborative meeting was established to help further connect the local faith-based community to work together to help carry the load.
This project was not designed to circumvent those organizations with extensive experience with these types of situations like, Catholic Charities. Nor was this project designed to replace individual efforts already being initiated by various churches and organizations within our community. Rather, this project was designed to fulfill Jesus’ prayer for us in John chapter 17, “…that they may be brought to complete unity.” Many hands make light work and ensuring we work together will help us provide the best possible outcome.
