Guest Host Jon Sanders: Welcoming The Stranger (w/ Jared Alleman) – Episode 188

Jesus said, “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” (Matthew 25:40 NKJV) The Welcome Net strives to act out these words of Jesus through the Chicagoland Immigrant Welcome Network. It is dedicated to upholding the human dignity of some of the most vulnerable in their community.

Jared Alleman joins guest host Jon Sanders today to discuss how he discovered that the mission field doesn’t always require you to leave the country. This is a very eye-opening conversation.

Key Takeaways

1) The political division in our country doesn’t release us from our calling as Christians to care for the least of these. The fact that the refugees are not American doesn’t give us a pass on being compassionate.

2) The effects of leaving your homeland to flee from war are so traumatic. Then you arrive in America not knowing the language or even what to do next.

3) There are 127 different languages spoken in Sioux Falls, SD. The melting pot of America is a vast infusion of different people groups and cultures.

4) While the need to “go into all the world” requires that we provide mission pathways to foreign countries, America is now a place “where all the world” has come to our soil.
