I usually write about refugee ministry and activities I am involved with because I want to bring awareness to my community (and beyond) of the continued needs of refugees once they are resettled. But today, I would like to give you a peek into my family’s vacation that we took over the 4th of July week!
Now we’re home and back into the regular swing of life. This past week found me at the dentist office with Scarlet (again) and visiting many Iraqi friends that I haven’t gotten to see in a few months.
I am excited for some major events occurring over the next 2 weeks: a Congolese mother and daughter getting to be reunited after 9 years apart (7 of those years not knowing whether the other was alive or dead) and of traveling with my parents to Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri to witness an Afghan friend graduate Army boot camp and be sworn in as an American citizen. Be on the lookout for a blog post highlighting these life-changing events!
