At Way of Life Mission, we desire to assist new arrivals as they adjust to their home in America. We consider it a blessing to welcome the nations to this beautiful state of Maine.
World Refugee Day 2018
A message for those who arrived as refugees recently or long ago…
You came to our state as a refugee,
looking for safe haven,
a peaceful place,
a secure home.
With courage and determination,
you started again,
began a new chapter,
navigated another way of life.
You are no longer a refugee.
That title belongs to your past,
a former designation,
a part of your history.
Today, you are my coworker;
we labor side-by-side.
You are my classmate;
together we are reaching for our goal.
You are my neighbor;
we share life next-door to one another.
Most of all, you are my friend,
and Maine is our mutual home.
