We are thankful and we are celebrating! It has been one year since Argentine and Mapendo and their families arrived in Canada! They are so happy to be here and they are full of praise. With them, we thank God for all the blessings.
We will always be thankful for the support of the many people, near and far, who gave generously and continue to give and support these families with their love and prayers and gifts. Your love has made a life-changing difference!
The women have been busy sewing and building their new life in Canada. Mapendo’s husband is working part-time. Two of the young girls are working part-time. The children are in school except for the youngest one. Everyone is learning more and more English! We have celebrated 9 birthdays and many special occasions together. We have been through Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. Another Winter season has our new Canadians bundling up again in their warm clothing.
The future is bright so we really want to emphasize our thankfulness. We couldn’t have done this without everyone who contributed to the support of our new families. Every donation has made a difference! Every visit has made a difference! Every act of love has made a difference! Every encouraging word has made a difference! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
With immense gratitude and great joy,
Cheryl Balay, President of AIRSS
