Philip's Faithful Service Bringing Hope to Refugees

In 2022, the Holy Spirit prompted the staff at Casa to provide care to Afghan refugees who settled in Houston. From the very beginning of his work with Casa, Philip’s genuine passion for our cause shone brightly.

Philip’s authentic connection with the Afghan Clinic’s community is in praying over patients. This fosters a sense of unity and solidarity that resonates deeply for him. He says, “When people first come to Casa, they have no financial resources and need help.” He knows the Lord is working through Casa touching people’s hearts.

Philip’s is a powerful testament. One patient named Abdallah had known nothing but the teachings and practices of Islam throughout his life. After fleeing his homeland of Afghanistan and settling in Houston, Abdallah came to Casa and met Philip, who offered him more than just a helping hand; he shared the message of Jesus Christ’s redemptive love. Through heartfelt prayers and an earnest desire to know Jesus, Abdallah made the life-changing decision to receive Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. At that moment, his life began to change. His anxieties were replaced by the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Philip says that the patients love the environment at Casa. “They notice they are being taken care of.” Patients at Casa have experienced lots of isolation while going through the storms. They are going through trauma. Many have lost their loved ones. “Their suffering is especially hard when they are sick,” he says.

Philip offers important translation services, which many people who come to the Afghan Clinic rely on. He thanks Casa’s staff, donors and volunteers for doing such great work. “Through Casa, the Lord keeps our patients taken care of and saves their hearts.”
