Givers or receivers?

When I visit refugee camps around the world, I often wonder who is really giving and who is really receiving.  One thing I am always touched by, is that refugee families, friends, and churches always want to send their greetings back to the USA, to my family and friends.  I have always found refugees to be truly grateful for anyone to come and visit them, to treat them as human beings, and to be willing to invest in a relationship with them, and not just do things ‘for’ them.  Their thanksgiving is amazing, and it reminds me how much we can learn from those who are forcibly displaced in this world.
