November 28, 2016 Update

What joy! Omar, Salwa and their seven children arrived safely this morning. Everything went smoothly. They are now happily settled in their new apartment. They send their love and gratitude to the entire community and look forward to meeting everyone soon. For now, they are resting and getting their bearings.

We are so grateful to Ahmad and Muzna Dureid who were our translators today. Thank you, thank you to everyone for everything you have done to make this day possible. You are too many to name! But know that your gifts of time, money, and support mean the world to this family.
We all had tears in our eyes as we met for the first time. Today the family became permanent residents of Canada and Quebec. It has been a long journey!
