UPDATE ON OUR ‘KAREN’ REFUGEE FAMILY:
This week we were able to clean the apartment. The landlord agreed
to replace all the flooring in the apartment, so their move will not
take place until sometime this upcoming week. Thank you everyone
for all the household items and furniture that you have agreed to
donate! By the time we put everything together, the apartment will
be turned into a “home”.
As a church we will continue to support them as they get accustomed
to our country. Please sign up in the narthex if you are willing to help
transport them to church and appointments that come up. If anyone
could assist with friendship/visitation or do English tutoring (this
could be as simple as reading picture books to Julia) even if it is on a
limited basis, sign up or talk to Shari.
