strangers in our midst

there is a great (front page!) article in today's Herald-Leader about a recently arrived refugee family from Liberia. Check out the article here. Not many of us in this community of faith have remained untouched by the unbelievable tragedy and grace of local refugee stories. we have had some kind of connection with KRM for over 5 years now and it's hard to imagine a more important work for the people of God than caring for the strangers in our midst.

as a footnote to this post...
we just heard this morning that Christian (the 5 year-old refugee child) has malaria and is in hospital for treatment. If you're the praying kind, please remember this family as they deal with the dual stress of illness and adjustment to life in the US.
