With our church council’s support it has been proposed that St Olaf Lutheran Church in Fort Dodge become a welcoming place for refugees from Afghanistan. The structure of that “welcoming place” would encompass establishing a committee to support areas such as:
1. Communication with federal, state, and local organizations
4. Cultural orientation
6. Jobs & Legal services
7. Communication with other refugees 8. Transportation
