As he is reunited with his wife and children, refugee is overcome; feared he would never see them again
But sometimes you really have to see something to really “get it.” Here we see a Sudanese woman, who came to the United States in 2012 alone with her two children in tow, and pregnant with her third. Her husband, Dyan, remained a refugee in Sudan, and the family did not know whether they would ever be reunited. With assists and friendship from “The Village Church,” a Christian community, and many prayers, that day finally did come. And when it did, Dyan was not afraid to give tearful, and very public, thanks to God for what must surely seem a miraculous gift.
Do not grow slack in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.
Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, persevere in prayer.
Contribute to the needs of the holy ones, exercise hospitality.
Bless those who persecute [you], bless and do not curse them.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.
