Inside a refugee camp

 

When Chris Dorsey (cdorsey87 ) was asked by the pastors of a South African church to take pictures of a camp for refugees of war-torn Somalia, he was not quite prepared for what he would encounter that day . Hours after he arrived at a camp at a nature reserve near Cape Town, hundreds upon hundreds of refugees began pouring in, seeking food and shelter. Dorsey helped out with registration, and handed out blankets, medical supplies and food. As tents went up and electricity was installed, Dorsey was blown away by it all.

 

"All of this was organized in a single day, entirely by the local churches," he says. "It was incredible to see the outpouring of love in the midst of such tragedy." However, he also warns that camps like this one "are on the brink of a humanitarian crisis." Dorsey was able to share this story with the world, with his own words and compelling images, by logging on to iReport.com .

 

What stories do you have to tell?

Recently I relocated my family to Bangkok Thailand. I am Pastor and work with a Seventh day Adventist church in Bangkok. I was given the opportunity to visit a Burmese/Karan refugee camp in Eastern Thailand a few months ago and was changed forever at what I saw. Sending a check is good, but nothing, and I me nothing helps like a personal visit. Connecting with the refugees and relief workers in person will cause a reevaluating of priorities and values.

PARTNERSHIP IN CHRIST JESUS

What does partnership mean? When I looked up partnership on Dictionary.com this is what it says:

 

Partnership

 

A relationship between individuals or groups that is characterized by mutual cooperation and responsibility, as for the achievement of a specified goal:

 

A good example is joining in partnership with Bishop James Winfree Ministries and Team. When you join you enter into a relationship with us and we are all about teamwork; we are a give-and-take ministry; where each partner gives what they have and Bishop James Winfree Ministries and Team gives what we have.

 

No one party is giving all the time to anyone who is just taking. Partnership is not just any one person taking all the time that is not teamwork. Teamwork is a cooperative effort by the members of a group or team to achieve a common goal

 

That, is what we here looking for here at Bishop James Winfree Ministries and Team, people who are willing to work with us in cooperative effort as a team to achieve to a common goal.

 

When you join you enter into Partnership with us and you are saying that I am willing to be in cooperation with this ministry. You are saying I am willing to give what I have just like the early Church did after the Holy Spirit fell upon the people.

 

They shared everything and no one was in lack of anything:

 

Acts 2:41-47

 

41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. 42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. 44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.

 

46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

 

Acts 4:29-37

 

29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus."

 

31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.

 

32 Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. 33 And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. 34 Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, 35 and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.

 

36 And Joses, who was also named Barnabas by the apostles (which is translated Son of Encouragement), a Levite of the country of Cyprus, 37 having land, sold it, and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

 

Now this was teamwork and God added to the Church daily.

 

What is Bishop James Winfree Ministries and Teams goal? To bring Unity and Equality to the Church, the Body of Christ, and we would like you to join us in partnership to achieve this goal.

 

2 Corinthians 8:11-15 (NKJV)

 

11 but now you also must complete the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to desire it, so there also may be a completion out of what you have. 12 For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have.

13 For I do not mean that others should be eased and you burdened; 14 but by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may supply their lack, that their abundance also may supply your lack—that there may be equality. 15 As it is written, "He who gathered much had nothing left over, and he who gathered little had no lack."

 

Luke 6:38

 

38 If you give, you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over. Whatever measure you use in giving – large or small – it will be used to measure what is given back to you.

 

Whatever you have to offer this ministry and you are willing to give your talents, time, money and hard work, etc., we are willing give back to you our talents, time, money and hard work, etc., and we will see God increase the Church as He did for the Early Church.

 

Written with the Authority of Jesus Christ

And

With the Authority of Apostle James R. Winfree
