A few months ago, members of FreeChurch came together as a group called FreshStart to commit to sponsoring a refugee family fleeing war in Syria. We are now excited to announce that we have been matched with a refugee family! It is a family of four from Syria currently residing in Jordan – Ahmad (33), Alaa (23) and their two sons Yaman and Ibrahim (6 and 4). We are praying for this family as they begin this dramatic life change. We are preparing our hearts to welcome them warmly with grace and compassion. We are excited about new friendships and a fresh start for this family. While we don’t know the exact date of arrival, we believe it is in the next two months. Soon we will be asking for support in collecting furniture, appliances, bedding, clothing, toys and school supplies.
A huge thank you to FreeChurch and our friends and families for giving so generously so far. FreshStart has successfully raised $18,000 of our $30,000 goal. If you feel called to give financially to help this young family of four, you may do so in person at our FreeChurch services or online at our YouCaring site.
