David FieldDavid has spent the last 15 years in Austria working with refugees. He has worked at The Oasis in Traiskirchen for 10 years and for the last 5 years at the InterTreff in Reutte.
The refugees David meets hope for a new future—a safe place to settle down where there is no war or persecution. Their hopes are often dashed when they realise that wherever they go they are unwanted. To many refugees, it seems as though there is no place on earth where there is no hate, discrimination or persecution. David uses his ministry to refugees to encourage them to grow in their faith. He shares with refugees how they can enter God's Kingdom; a place where there will be love and not hate. He evangelises to refugees in word and deed. Furthermore, David helps the refugees integrate into the church and society.
The money raised through Ride for Refugees will help to provide David with financial support, enabling him to continue bringing the hope of Jesus to refugees in Austria.
