If you have been reading my blog for a while you may remember that my husband and I sponsored a young girl from Africa who fled persecution and is seeking asylum in the U.S. She has been living in California with a young girl from church as she waits for her hearing date. She has been going to school and is working on her GED. Out of the blue the landlord where she has been staying must have discovered she was living with her friend and she was kicked out yesterday and left on the street where she spent the night. When the library opened this morning she was able to email me to tell me what had happened and I panicked. By 7:00 tonight we had found a place for her to stay but not without many phone calls and some very surprising and unkind responses along the way. It made me realize how thankful I am to have a warm bed. Tonight I will sleep well in my bed especially knowing that this young girl is safe and has a place to sleep.
Just can't wait to read your comments! Jojo at 7:54 PM
