Family Bios: November 16, 2019 (morning)

We will visit two families, both from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

One couple fled as children with their families and later met in refugee camp in Nairobi, Kenya. They now have two sons (ages 3 and 16) and four daughters (ages 4, 10, 14, 17) of their own.  They managed to live away from refugee camp in Kenya, both working in clothing sales. The family has been in the USA for only two months. The children are in school and doing well. The parents are actively seeking employment. And their English is improving,  with practice, every day!  They look forward to greeting our volunteers and practicing their English.

The second family arrived from Uganda. The couple are both from DRC, having escaped war along with their families as children.  They met and married in camp and now have seven children, age 3 to 17. They arrived to the United States in September 2019.  Their very first goal is to secure employment. We look forward to meeting this family on Saturday.
