He has only a sweatshirt.  He needs a coat.


They are strangers in a strange land.  They need help.  they need hope.

The Presbytery of Des Moines’ Sudanese Support Team is partnering with our First Arabic Presbyterian Worshiping Community to provide desperately needed items for newly arrived Sudanese refugees. We ask for your help by making a monetary donation or providing a gift card (Walmart, Target, Hy-Vee, Price Chopper, etc.).

DONATE online at, or send gift cards or checks (payable to Presbytery of Des Moines with Sudanese Mission on the memo line) to the Presbytery of Des Moines, 2400 86th Street, Suite 20, Urbandale, IA 50322.

James 2:15-17
