Donated Furniture for Iraqi Christian Refugees Print E-mail
Iraqi Family Last weekend Pastor Shehab of Salam Christian Fellowship requested some furniture for an Iraqi family living in Elgin. Because of your donations, they were given some comfortable chairs for their living room. Eleven months ago Raheeb, his wife and two daughters came the United States as Iraqi refugees. One month after they arrived, Raheeb’s wife died leaving behind 20 year old Amed and 17-year-old Nada. This past year has been difficult and filled with sorrow for this family. Yet in the midst of their sorrow they were surrounded by their newly adopted Christian family of brothers and sisters from Salam Christian Fellowship who were there to grieve with them and comfort them with the love of the Lord Jesus who died to give new eternal life to their mother and wife and is there to comfort and strengthen them as they rebuild their life in America.

Your Furniture Donation Helps an Iranian Family Become Comfortable Print E-mail
Family in Need LCC volunteer Helmut Mueller delivered some sofas and end tables to Iman Sersawi and her family. LCC learned about Iman and her family from Pastor Hesham Shehab of Salam Christian Fellowship. Iman and her family have been here in the United States for two years living with other family members. Just recently she and her family were able to get an apartment of their own, but it was completely empty. The sofa, loveseat and tables donated through LCC were literally the first pieces of furniture the family has in their new home. The sofas served as the starter pieces God has provided and used to get the rest of the furniture they needed.

Seated on the sofa L to R is Hussein Alsamurrai, his youngest broth Mohamed Ali and their Mother Iman Sersawi. Seated on either side of the family are two of Hussein’s friends who came to help unload the furniture on the far left is Dzemil Ferizi and on the far right, in black, is Alex Mandare.

She is now living in a temporary apartment and is seeking residence in an assisted living facility. Thank you for giving.
