Three Miracles for Our Syrian Family
The first miracle: the June 29 Syrian fundraiser dinner/ḥaflah was a culinary treat and financial success. We raised nearly enough funds to pay off government loans for both families. Thanks to all who attended and made generous donations.
second miracle: Last week, Ubaydah, Samar and Faruq were
interviewed and accepted as new members of the Tyee Housing Co-op. This will
provide housing security for the Rashid family, and reduce their monthly rent
expense considerably. Timing is excellent, as they will move in five weeks
before our sponsorship period ends.
third miracle: With the burdensome government loan nearly
resolved, and housing security achieved, we have been fervently hoping Ubaydah
could meet the next great challenge – an initial full-time job. And he has done
just that. On
July 4, Ubaydah had a job interview, and on July 5, he started work. What a
marvellous ten days for this family!
