GFORCe team is ready and waiting to welcome our refugee family.  After the application to sponsor is approved by the United Church of Canada and then the federal government, we will be getting the call that they are on their way, possibly in the next few weeks. We have found rental housing in Georgetown, our storage spaces are full of household goods, and many people are ready to help with language training, health care, and rides to wherever the family needs to go.  For now, prayer and patience!
