Afghan Family Ministry Update

A core team of 8 volunteers from St. George’s has completed all training and requirements through Nashville International Center for Empowerment (NICE) and are ready to begin work with an Afghan family in Nashville. While direct contact with the family will be limited to these core volunteers, we hope to provide periodic updates so the church can join this work through the transformational power of prayer.

St. George’s has been partnered with a family of 6—two parents and four children.  Three girls are working young adults and there is a 15-year-old boy in high school. The father will also be working while the mother maintains the household.


Update from March 11, 2022

The family has officially moved into permanent housing—thanks for your prayers!

Update from March 9, 2022

The family currently lives in temporary housing until a permanent residence can be established for them. Each individual's understanding and comfort with English varies, so a primary effort will be helping them learn the language.

How can you help?

Most of all, we ask for your prayers for the family as they adjust to life in Tennessee with a new language and culture. Please pray that we find ways to ease that transition in a caring and loving manner. As more information becomes available, we will share ways in which the parish can contribute and be involved in this ministry.
