Mission 2540 is a group of people from Evangel Baptist Church who have joined together to sponsor and settle a refugee family in Edmonton.
Our name is taken from Matthew 25.40: “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
We have applied to sponsor a family of 6 people. There is a mother and father, three children aged 4-9. And the grandmother of the children. The family is from Qaraqosh, Iraq. Qaraqosh is a city in northern Iraq where ¼ of all Iraqi Christians lived. In August 2014 ISIS captured the city, and all the inhabitants fled.
Our goal is to raise enough money for transportation for the family to Canada, and to settle the family in Edmonton.
Thank you for partnering with us as we serve the King. For updated information about our project, you can visit our Mission 2540 Facebook page for more details, or connect with Pastor Wayne via email.
