Nebraska POBLO Mission
Nebraska’s immigrant population comprises more than 6 percent of the state’s total population, with an increasing number of immigrants from Asian and Latino countries. Over 3 percent of Nebraska’s registered voters are new Americans — immigrants or children of immigrants. Omaha’s Muslim population is estimated at around 6,000 and is growing due to the increasing numbers of refugees and those arriving for jobs. Other cities with Muslim populations include Lincoln, De Moines, and Sioux City. Nebraska’s Muslim population is becoming increasingly diverse, with Muslims from over 20 countries across the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe.
POBLO has helped to establish two International Friendship Centers in Omaha, where volunteers teach English, sewing, and citizenship classes. Our outreach also includes food, clothing, and furniture distribution; friendship and hospitality, and street Evangelism — where missionaries meet and befriend new Americans. By sharing the love of Jesus in practical ways, POBLO missionaries are creating opportunities to also share the Gospel message with the unreached in Nebraska.
