Sadly, the family that we are helping to sponsor as refugees from Syria has not arrived. Despite initial hopes that they would be here by the end of February, we do not yet have a firm arrival date. There is some indication that they may come in late September 2016. This has been disappointing for all who worked hard to raise funds and also to secure a co-op apartment, which recently had to be let go.
We are not alone, however. This Maclean’s article gives a good summary of what is happening and also how others are feeling. We will continue to do all we can to support them, including prayer and contacting the family.
