Dana on our trip

Our 2012 ministry among Afghans refugees

When I first heard my parents talk about going to Europe, I really didn’t want to go. But, once we were there, particularly in Greece, I didn’t want to come back. I had such a great time with all the Afghans and the interns that I met.

The first day there I went out with some interns to meet Afghans ad share about Jesus; after that I was excited to go out with them every day. I really enjoyed getting to know them, learning about why they were here, and learning from them how to share my testimony. They inspired and encouraged me to come closer to God and pray a lot more.

It was fun to get to know some Afghans and learn about them and how they live. In the two weeks we were there I met a lot of them and really enjoyed their openness to talk to anyone that comes up to them. I was able to help serve Afghans tea at a local ministry and it was so interesting to see how they interacted with each other and how happy they were to get tea.

One of the nights, I met a 13 year old Afghan girl named Behishta, she could speak English quite well. Her and her family had been in Greece for about a month when I met her, they were on their way to Germany. I have stayed in touch with her by email and she and her family are now in Germany. They have been given a place to live, but they are still there illegally, so waiting to find out if they can stay there or not.

I am glad I had the opportunity to go because I loved meeting new people. I learned how privileged I am to live in the USA and how difficult life is for people in other countries. I hope I have more opportunities to meet, help and share about Jesus with people around the world.
