Refugee Services: One Church, Two Families

One Atlanta congregation, Trinity Presbyterian Church, and two refugee families, the Gurung family from Bhutan and the Reh family from Burma, are becoming fast friends.  "Trinity Pres" co-sponsored the two families with LSG in the spring, meeting them at the airport and providing furnished apartments for each family. "Trinity Pres" members continue to visit the families on a regular basis, welcoming them with warm friendship. The families, who live next door to each other, are settling well into their new lives in Clarkston.  While the adults focus on learning and improving their English and working with LSG to find jobs, the children are enjoying summer fun, like summer day camp and outings to Stone Mountain and Centennial Olympic Park.
