This fall African Leadership Refugee Ministry welcomed 46 new refugees to Nashville from Elitrea, Somalia and Ethiopia. These families have come to us through many years of suffering. They have lived in Kakuma refugee camps located in the Northern part of Kenya. It's a very dry area, almost a desert. Most of these families are very big in terms of numbers, even as I write this update, there are a few mothers expecting and there is one that just delivered a healthy baby girl in the last two weeks. These families are going to need a crowd of witnesses to surround them and shower them with love as they are still getting used to the new ways of their new surroundings.

If you would like to know how you can assist the new families, please contact William Mwizerwa at for details.
