At convention in Phoenix, we will have two formal opportunities to practice stewardship and generosity (we’re sure you could find others, too, if you looked carefully enough). Throughout the week, we are going to have two special offerings that will support ministries that members of Mennonite Church USA are engaged in.

One opportunity is to support the DREAMer Fund. This fund provides help with application fees for undocumented young adults as they apply for legal relief through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). This fund will support young adults who came to the United States as children, who have grown up here and for whom this place is home, even though they are not formally citizens of the United States.

It costs $300 to help one DREAMer meet all of the necessary requirements. We hope that you will partner with us to raise $15,000 (or more) to help at least 50 young Mennonites realize their dreams.
