Matthew 25:35-37 New Revised Standard Version
“…For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.”
Our National Justice for Our Neighbors (NJFON) Network
National Justice For Our Neighbors (NJFON) is a network of monthly clinics, hosted by local
United Methodist churches, which provide professional legal services to immigrants for free. NJFON helps immigrants to reunite their families, secure immigration status, and enjoy the right to work. It also encourages churches to extend radical hospitality by providing places for
community gathering and table fellowship. NJFON volunteers network with advocacy groups to work towards just and compassionate immigration laws and public policy. When parishioners and newcomers come together, they create safe havens of peace and transformation in a troubled world.
