Refugee Project

Sister Landeen and Sister Bausman (Picture by Elder Greg Jarrard)
Two young mothers who are the Relief Society presidents of the two wards in Frankfurt had a desire to do something to help refugee children. They talked to Sister Stay who is here with her husband coordinating the church's ministry to refugees across the Europe area (30 countries). They developed their own project which grew into something that involved the wards, the community, and companies and resulted in 1061 kits for refugee children up to the age of 12 who are spread across several camps in different parts of Germany. It was a remarkable effort. Our friend Elder Greg Jarrard wrote a piece for the Church News and Elder Kirk contributed a picture. The link to the article and the photographs follows. You will see Sister Kirk in the middle of one of the pictures adjusting her sweater sleeve. ;)

As the Savior taught, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these . . . "
