SWARM – New Family update! A new refugee family is arriving on Wednesday, May 15! The Sharif family are 2 parents, 6 children and a grandparent, initially from Afghanistan but recently refugees in Turkey. This sponsorship is a partnership with one of our committee members who made the initial application. We have rented a house for them and will fill it with the many donated goods to make a home. The Southwest Area Refugee Mission has begun a fundraising effort to assist the family with rent for their first year in Canada, allowing them to focus on learning English and finding work.

Hope Lutheran has kindly volunteered to purchase:

• nine pillows

• two queen size mattress protectors

• one double size mattress protector

• three twin size mattress protectors for our new family

Please let Jane know in the church office if you are willing to purchase any of these so we do not have too many. We will need these items delivered to the church by Wednesday, May 15. Please contact Mark Christensen at 403 828-0308 if you need any more information. Thank YOU very much! If you can help in any way, financially or with set up assistance please let us know. Financial donations are welcome at any time. Mark Christensen or the church administrator can give you contact information. Or contact Marla Mulloy 403-617-6494
