The Positive Impact of Immigrants – A Wonderful Testimony!
Dec 13, 2011 by M. Daniel Carroll R. | 0 Comments
It is not uncommon to hear that immigrants are a drain on the economy and a threat to communities. Discussion about this can quickly turn to tossing statistics back and forth about the economic gains vs. costs of the immigrant presence or about the legitimacy of criminalizing an entire population.
Here is a more edifying and constructive perspective: the positive impact that Christian immigrants are having in metro-Denver. Here are two accounts of what immigrants are doing to serve those in need. These brothers and sisters are students of Denver Seminary’s Hispanic program.
These students are acting as the feet and hands of Jesus as his followers. Not only are these uplifting stories, they also are a testimony of the power of the gospel. We can thank the Lord for how he uses “the foolish and the weak” things of the world to advance the good news (1 Corinthians 1:26-31).
