As hundreds of thousands of migrants and asylum seekers from across the globe are seeking entry into the United States, churches on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border are providing the much-needed assistance and hospitality to their vulnerable brothers and sisters.

Last weekend, The Justice Conference hosted a conference on migration and refugees in San Diego, California. Glen Peterson, the Southern California Office Director for evangelical refugee resettlement agency World Relief, spoke as a panelist about how churches can and are responding to the crisis.

“Churches on both sides of the border are providing shelter,” Peterson told The Christian Post in an interview.
