Story number 2 for 9 Nov 2000

Next, while there are reports of intense fighting in Sudan, teenage Sudanese are finding refuge in homes in the United States. Bethany Christian Services says the first wave of refugee young people landed in the U-S this week. Jenelle Czaplicki of Michigan says the mission field has come to her family. ” We don’t know where these children are spiritually. Maybe they are followers of Jesus Christ already. I don’t know for sure, and it’s just a matter of finding out and sharing truth with them. Apparently their parents were killed for their faith, but we don’t know what that faith was exactly.” Czaplicki says these young people know very little English. She’s asking for prayer. “Pray for the adjustment – the details that we have to go through with every single thing. I mean the morning took two hours just to explain how all the lamps turn off and on and then they want to practice that for a long time because it’s fun. The little details are going to get tiring.”
