"They were strangers, but they were family, because they had already become a part of our hearts -because we were praying and waiting and thinking about those families." -Lyn Carlson of Lancaster Mennonite School & Forest Hills Mennonite Church
For the folks at Forest Hills Mennonite Church in Lancaster, Pennsylvania,- to just hear about the terrible suffering in Syria and then to "not do anything" was not good enough. After some prayerful & heartfelt consideration, they reached out to Church World Service to learn how they could be of help. Soon after, they found themselves as literal ambassadors of Jesus as they welcomed a refugee family (from Aleppo, Syria) into their church. With nothing but Christlike embrace, they began a new journey together with this family.
