One of the most important things we can do as followers of Jesus is to welcome those who are seeking refuge. The only difference between someone that is labeled a "refugee" and someone that is not is circumstance. “Valley of the Children” is about turning loss into strength and revealing the externalities that put us at odds with one another. “Family is more than just a biological connection” and those of us who are strong and capable enough should lend a hand down to others. After all, “if we aren’t friends, if we aren’t neighbors, if we aren’t family… than what are we?”

We hope this film inspires you today to reach out to your neighbor and to love them.
