The steering committee has been working with Bethany Christian Services since last spring to host a refugee family. In August, we were prepared to welcome the Majok family from South Sudan. We rented a home and, with the help of our entire church family, equipped it to be ready. Unfortunately, there have been numerous delays due to visa issues, medical clearances and US policy changes and the Majoks are still on hold as of mid-November. We have had no further up-dates since November.
With this in mind, the steering committee met and has agreed that we cannot hold open the house we are renting indefinitely. We have informed Bethany and they are in the process of looking for a family that is ready to move in the next few weeks. Please keep Bethany in our prayers as they work though their processes. Also keep the Majoks in your prayers. They may not come to us but we are hopeful that they will soon be welcomed to a safer, more secure home.
