1st Week of September Interviews!!!

Hello everyone, 

This week is an important and exciting time for AIRSS and our refugee families because of the upcoming interviews. Thanks be to God for these interviews with the Canadian Visa officer. We are also very thankful for everyone who advocated for our families. Thank you!!!


The interviews are scheduled to take place at 8:00 am in Uganda on Thurs, Sept 7th, 2017.  Because of time zones differences, the time will likely be quite different in your location...unless you are in Uganda!


For Alberta residents, when it is 8 am in Uganda on Thursday, the time will actually be 11 pm on Wednesday, September 6th Alberta time. (9 hour time difference for us)


For other Canadians and for our American supporters, your time may be different depending on your location. That is why I didn't write a date and time in the title. It could be September 6th or September 7th depending where you live. 


Argentine and Mapendo and their families are in our thoughts and prayers as they prepare, travel, and do the interviews. They are amazing people and they have endured so much to get to this point. Thank you again for everything you have done to help them.


If you are able, would you please join us in prayer? We pray for safe travels to the interview location, successful interviews with decisions to approve all of the family members for resettlement in Athabasca, and for everything that needs to happen for our families. Thank you!!!


With deepest appreciation,

Cheryl Balay, President of AIRSS
