We four, Julie, Clare, Jeanne, and I said farewell to the humanitarian respite center. We all welcomed 230 refugees today. A journalist and reporter from Iceland were documenting the story of the families. New volunteers arrived from church and civic groups. We wonder how the refugees will be welcomed by their sponsors and neighborhoods. We were privileged to assist them on their journey and send them on the bus with a smile and a prayer. We four said farewell to the staff and volunteers with whom we were privileged to share the mission.
