Refugees Arriving to London, ON!

Pastor Greg Brawn of Byron United wrote to tell me that they have two refugee families arriving in London this week. The first family consists of a husband and wife, and their four children. They escaped from Syria once they knew that a sponsorship could be arranged. That family flew into Montreal, and was expected here today, Wednesday.

The other family should arrive by Friday, minus one family member who will be arriving later. (If I understand correctly, he had been kidnapped, but was found safe and sound, and will now be reunited with his family here in London.)

As Pastor Greg notes, the families are coming as a direct result of donations which many of us made to the Metropolitan United Church back in August and September.
