Refugee Sunday 2012
Great is Thy Faithfulness O God My Father, There is No Shadow of Turning With Thee There is No Shadow of Turning With Thee Great is Thy Faithfulness O God My Father, There is No Shadow of Turning With Thee There is No Shadow of Turning With Thee
This year, CRWRC celebrates God’s faithfulness through 50 years of ministry!
For almost 35 of those years, our churches have sponsored refugees from life-threatening situations.
Providing them with friendship, support, advice, and assistance as they started life in a new land.
You have been generous and God has been faithful. Praise God!
Our work is not done. Many families are still in need of assistance. Some wait several long years after we apply to sponsor them to Canada before their claims are processed.
Amina and her children waited 7 years in Kakuma refugee camp before they arrived in Canada in 2010.
It took even longer for Abdi Muhidin to arrive from Somalia.
Just before Christmas 2011, Colette and Francois arrived in Toronto. Originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, they had been waiting 8 years.
Their parents and siblings are still waiting.
In order to shorten wait times, the government of Canada has decided to dramatically reduce new applications for specific families to come to Canada
They hope this will mean many more arrivals of people who have been waiting in camps for many years.
CRWRC has already met our limit for 2012, but your help is still needed.
Please pray for the millions of men, women, and children who are living as refugees in our world today.
Please give generously so that CRWRC can continue working with and advocating for refugees that come to Canada.
Or consider sponsoring a government-referred family with an urgent need of resettlement.

As we experience God’s faithfulness, let us also remember God’s children everywhere who hope for a better future.
