The Kingston community has been extremely generous in support of our refugee partnership. We are very excited to report that the money has been raised to support the first family we chose to sponsor. As money and offers of support continue to flow we see that as a call to continue responding to the world’s refugee crisis and we have started the paperwork to sponsor a second family.
The second family consist of Mohammad who is a musician and composer, his wife Riham and their 5 children ages 2 thru 11. Having had to flee their home in Syria to Amman, Jordan and prevented from working to support themselves, they are currently living poorly in a single room. Please pray that the application process goes smoothly and that they can be liberated to Canada as quickly as possible.
