An invasion or a mission field?

ISAAC is not an advocacy group and does not have a political agenda. We pray that each Christian choose their political stance on immigration reform based upon prayer and the dictates of their conscious.

ISAAC does, however, have a spirtual agenda. ISAAC helps churches minster to the immigrant community by providing accurate information on the issues, establishing and supporting ESL/Citizenship classes, and by assisting with the federal "recognition" process. With this spiritual agenda comes two assumptions: 1) God is ultimately in control of all things in this world; and 2) as Christians we are commanded to, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." Matthew 28:19.

I can't fathom God's intentions but I do know that there are 10-12 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. I also know that many of these immigrants need Christ. So how do I present the Gospel and become the presence of Christ in these people's lives? That's the really important question isn't it?
