The news media may have turned its attention to new stories but a international refugee crisis is still happening in Europe. My mission base (YWAM The Kings Lodge, England) already runs a house near the refugee camp in the Calais-Dunkirk (France) area to host teams. A small team of us have been praying how we could bless the refugees there during the holiday season. 

We have decided to take off to Calais this weekend! We will be preparing a Christmas meal made of traditional middle Eastern food for the refugees in the camp. We will show them what Christmas is about by simply spending time with them and loving them. What better way to celebrate Christmas season than showing God's Love to those in a dire situation?!

Luckily, being in England we are close by, however, we will have few costs to do this: fuel, ferry, food, accommodation and supplies. We have estimated the cost to be about $100/team member. 

I invite you to participate in celebrating Christmas by helping to provide a meal and sharing God's love with refugees during the Christmas season! We have been told we will be serving 700 people!

We are working to raise $1,500 to pay for the food to serve 700 refugees!

Thank you all so much for giving and sharing, the day was a great success! We fed over 700+ people! 
We learned that the camp is loosly organized with several organizations pitching in (which I  have found to be a very common in refugees camps).

With the lack of funding and help the refugees are being fed mostly vegitatrian meals so our 200 chickens was a very welcomed change. Some of the team was also able to take part in a christmas party with women and children in the camp. The party was lead by another organization but we were able to help and do face painting. 



Eventhough this trip was a very short one, I believer it has further opened the door for more YWAM teams to work in the camp. The long term volunteer who runs the kitchen said he was stressed at the begining of the day due to a guest team cooking but by the end of the day he was very greatful for what we had done.  Our work has likely caused favor for the YWAM teams coming over the next few months.



On sunday we went to a local French church and explored the city of Boulogne-Sur-Mer
