It's about Friendship

“Say you want to be a part of something bigger than yourself – from there, all you do is just go have some coffee.” – Jason Estopinal

Just outside of Los Angeles, World Relief receives and resettles refugees from around the world. Churches and volunteers come alongside new arrivals and help them adjust to American culture. However, the relationships often move beyond conversation over coffee into something deeper.

“My life is being affected,” shares Jason, one volunteer at the Garden Grove office,  “Now I look around and my world’s a little bit less one-dimensional.”
