Refugee Garden launched in St. Cloud

“Today was a beautiful picture of answered prayers. One week ago today, this field was grass. Today 18 families planted seeds in 22 plots! The blood, sweat, tears & generosity of many made this all possible. I’m so grateful to be able to be a part of it!”

For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, And as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, So the Lord God will cause righteousness and justice and praise to spring up before all the nations [through the power of His word]. ISAIAH 61:11 AMP

– Samantha Grimsley, RLM St. Cloud Area Director

Do you have housing connections?

Recently we have had several inquiries from RLM teams who are helping their refugee families find new housing after their initial lease has ended. We have also been meeting more asylum-seekers who are in need of inexpensive or free (short-term) housing. Preferred housing is affordable and close to public transportation in Minneapolis and St. Paul. However, we would be interested to hear about availability throughout the Twin Cities.

If you or someone you know has a housing option or idea, please contact us!


Thank you for your continual prayers for RLM!
