They're Gone, They're Home At Last...

One of the many things I do, besides work as the senior pastor at a small church, is to work as a voulunteer with Episcopal Migration Ministries and their local affiliate Interfaith Refugee and Immigration Ministries. My official title: Episcopal Migration Ministries Refugee Program Diocesan Liaison (yeesh). Anyway. That's how I got this family. They arrived last week but their house was not ready. on a day's notice wew needed some place for them. So the church took them in.

I know almost nothing about them, except they came from a refugee camp in Cameroon. Originally from Rwanda they spent some time in Cameroon. The day they arrived they flew from Darfur to Paris to Chicago.
