Welcome the Stranger- GTA, in addition to supporting three refugee families, is now working on assisting families to bring their relatives and friends who are registered refugees with the United Nations, to Canada. This is being done through an application process called Group of Five (G5). Most of these G5 refugees will have their financial and resettlement needs covered by their relatives and friends in Canada. However, there is one Christian Vietnamese family of 11 who are living in a camp in Thailand and are being threatened with expulsion. They have a connection to the Vietnamese boat people sponsored by Wideman MC and our area churches in the 1970. We understand that they are being doubly persecuted for their faith and for their minority status. With Wideman MC leading, $41,000 of the needed $53,000 has been raised to sponsor this family. The Hmong Mennonite Church in Kitchener will take care of all of their resettlement needs but do not have the funds as they are sponsoring two additional families. The Hmong group in California have raised $12,500 to help sponsor this family. $12,000 more is needed to complete this sponsorship funding. The local churches have been very generous. If you wish to donate please give a cheque to your church treasurer who will forward it to Welcome the Stranger-GTA Group of Five. You will receive a receipt for tax purposes from the congregation.
To Committee Chairs: Please submit your Yearend reports to the office by Dec 31. Thank you. Quesney.

Just a quick note to let the area churches know that last week was the last Sunday for Hagerman to worship in our existing building. We are moving out while construction happens on our building and we ask for your prayers for our congregation and the construction workers during this time of renovation and change.
