Here we are, in the middle of February, about a month after launching TRAC. The incredible and overwhelming amount of support we have received throughout this period is infallible evidence of God’s grace and how He really does care for us.
I am a third year HKIN student. I love coffee, music, and people; and if you had talked to me a year ago about the global refugee crisis, I probably would have expressed to you how unfortunate it was. But I would not have had any way to respond and tangibly make a difference. If you had told me that we were going to be raising funds and awareness to bring a refugee family here to Langley, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. However, here we are. God has placed it on my heart to respond—to use my gifts and talents, to use my time and energy, and to use my voice to seek justice for people being affected by the global refugee crisis.
At the beginning of this school year, I was presented with the perfect opportunity to respond. Prior to this, I had very little exposure to the refugee crisis. I have never walked the grounds of a refugee camp, nor seen the crisis first-hand; however, TRAC is extremely close to my heart, and I have learned new things about God’s character through my involvement. Our goal is that we would be able to glorify God through this campaign, and that our efforts would inspire others to want to make a difference. As we continue this journey together, please continue to pray for us. Pray that we would remain faithful to responding to the call that has been placed on our hearts, pray for the family that we will be welcoming here, and pray that others would feel the need to respond as well.
Why waves? I love the mystery and wonder that is found within the waves. Jesus has the power to command the waves. Our family will be flying over oceans to come to Langley. Though life has its own waves, its own ups and downs, its own times of triumph and trial, God is still sovereign through it all.
To God be the glory,
