This edition of Global Issues Update addresses the Global Status of Refugees with subject matter expert Tom Albinson. Tom has been working with forcibly displaced people since 1980 and was based in Vienna until 2003, where he worked with refugees from Eastern Europe, Russia, Central Asia, East Asia and Africa. In 2001 Tom helped found the Refugee Highway Partnership and in 2009 he founded the International Association of Refugees. There are 42 million forcibly displaced people in the world. That translates into 1 out of every 162 people alive today. The Bible clearly communicates God’s heart for these aliens and strangers as well as His expectation for those of us who claim to be Christ-followers: The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself (Leviticus 19:34).
