Helping Refugees

The Aboalagal family arrived at 9 pm on Tuesday night! Everyone is healthy and happy to be in Canada with their sister and her family who live in Clearview. Just to remind you almost 3 years ago the sister who immigrated to Canada over 17 years ago approached the church to help her brother and his wife and two daughters ( 8 and 3 1/2) to come as refugees. The sister paid all the money in advance for the sponsorship and will have them live with her until we find a suitable rental unit.
