Migrant Workers

Posted: November 4, 2011 in Ministry

I’ve heard lots of times people say, “If Jesus was on Earth today _______ is who He would be helping.”  Obviously you can fill in the blank with whatever stokes your passion and if it’s a worth cause you can feel justified in making such a bold statement. I’m not going to go there…

Maybe Jesus would help illegal and legal immigrants who make sure you get your vegetables, watermelons, while keeping your grass mowed, and roads paved.  Maybe he would turn His head, because they snuck in our country, can’t speak English, and took jobs we don’t really want anyway.

I’m not running for office, so I’m just going to tell you why Axiom Church is going to turn our effort, resources, and our passions at helping Migrant Workers and their families.  BECAUSE THEY NEED OUR HELP.

I’ve done block parties, outreaches, random acts of kindness.  Giving a guy who makes $50K+ a year a light-bulb isn’t likely to make them drop to their knees and accept Jesus.  Buying a lady with $100 earrings a $4 coffee probably won’t quicken her soul to the Holy Spirit’s calling. But, giving a Migrant Worker a pair of shoes or a warm jacket just might make them ponder God’s love shown through your kindness.

According to our sources there are 500+ children and 1000+ adults we can help in North Central Florida, so here is what you can do to help:

  • Send men’s shoes (size 7-9) to 5745 SW 75th St. #172 Gainesville, FL 32608
  • Send men’s jackets (small or medium) to the above address.
  • Send children’s size jackets (boys and girls).
  • Send school supplies like pencils, pens, erasers, colored pencils.
  • Send toiletries like toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, soap, deodorant, and nail clippers.
  • Finally, you can donate through PayPal and earmark it Migrant using the “Make a Donation” button under Axiom Church on this page.
