1-ParagraphButton04t04  Students Raise Over $4,000 To Help Refugees
Exodus was invited to speak to Old Orchard Jr. High. The school had been raising money to "Save Darfur".

Wani and a member of the Refugee Bridge group, Anwar (who is here from Darfur alone) spoke to the students about the conflict in Darfur and how their class can make a difference for refugees locally. There were 600 students that attended the event and have since raised over $4000 to help the Welcome to America! Pack program!

Through their efforts, we have delivered over six Welcome to America! Packs so far! Exodus volunteer, Sue Horgan, has also been instrumental in coordinating deliveries with Diana Schmidt from Old Orchard Jr. High!

1-ParagraphButton04t04  Welcome To America

"When we first came, we couldn't speak English, but now we can. We'd like to invite the volunteers who brought the Welcome Pack to come back for tea!"

Welcome to America! Packs
needed for refugee families

Layla and hundreds of refugees like her are finally getting the chance to have a safe home for their families in Chicagoland. It's been a year since Layla and her family arrived. They received the help they needed from a group of Christians who decided to welcome them with the household goods they needed for their empty apartment. At the time, Layla and her family spoke only Turkish and Russian, but after a year of English classes and visits from committed Exodus volunteers, they know English! And what's the first thing they want to do? Find the volunteers who welcomed them their first day in a strange place to say thank you � and to share authentic Turkish tea and fresh made bread.

You can make that kind of impact on a newly arriving refugee family! They'll always remember the first day they arrive in their new home � filled with the household goods you're delivering. Floods of refugees have finally received long awaited approval to come to America and are arriving at O'Hare. Burmese fleeing forced conscription in the military for their children, Burundi finally escaping 35 years in a refugee camp after fleeing ethnic cleansing and many others are coming in large numbers to the Chicagoland area. Exodus knows of at least 30 refugee families that will arrive in September!

Help us to extend a warm welcome to these whom God loves by calling Jessica today to hear about a specific family that needs your personal, "Welcome to America!"

We need your help to reach the hundreds arriving in the next months! Help us spread the word by forwarding this message, telling your friends, family and church. Please contact Jessica Davis for more information or to sign up at 630-307-1400 x108 or jessica.davis.
