When you know who Scott and Tiffany are, you can understand how our God chose them. They are in a work, way over their heads in the ability to help a l l those who are in their need reach. They are humbled because of how much more they recognize God has given them to do and without the power to be 100% able. So, like so many of us, they simply look up and thank God and ask for His help to bring wondrous lightning out of God's responses (Thine is the Kingdom,Thine is the Power, Thine is the Glory forever). One life at a time. One day at a time, for the honor of their Lord and Savior, for the Father in Heaven, and for the Counselor Holy Spirit. Thank you Scott and Tiffany for your dedicated lives (and for the influence of your children) and for all those who work with you, who support you, and those whom you are serving, loving them as Christ loved those around him. Be His aroma. Charles Helm (Lake Mary Florida)

I like to donate to smaller, well-run organizations that also have a heart for their clients. Friends of Refugees in Clarkston, GA, certainly meets those criteria. I have personally witnessed the love that they reflect out to the community they serve, and it is purposefully the love of Jesus that they are reflecting. They have carved a niche in the area of service to refugees, and it has been a pleasure to watch the organization mature.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Providing transportation for kids.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them have a place of their own.

This is a small but mighty organization. Those involved work tirelessly with refugees in all areas of their lives. My husband and I have personally supported the directors of this program for many years and our donation followed them from their previous Christian organization to Friends. We did this because we have seen their hearts...unselfishly giving to others in the name of Jesus Christ. They have taken these people into their heart and their home. There are no "numbers" here. These are individuals whose lives have been changed because of their contact with Friends of Refugees. I have no concerns whatsoever that my monthly gift is used responsibly. Like so many organizations these days, I am sure that support would be welcomed whether it be monetary, volunteering or gifts in-kind. Whatever you can do for them I know will be appreciated. I feel very blessed to have a small part in this wonderful organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reviewing their newsletter and contact with the directors.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change a thing!
