The Lambrick office received this note, sharing an opportunity to love a family of our neighbours - in the geographical sense as well as spiritual! Please pray for this family as they search for their next home, and spread the word to anyone you think may be able to help!

A family of seven, fled from the chaotic violence in Afghanistan, is coming to the end of their one-year sponsorship with the Federal Government. A committee that includes church people has been working with the Inter Cultural Association to support this family for their first year in Victoria. All seven are well established now, with the father and mother working, and the five children in college and schools in Gordon Head. The one-year lease on their rental accommodation terminates at the end of July.

We are therefore, with some urgency, looking for a house this family might be able to rent from August 1 in the Gordon Head area. This would allow the children to stay in the schools they are familiar with; this would also make possible continued education for the college student, as well as supporting the parents in their work. The family hopes to find a rental at a modest price, though they understand the realities of appropriate costs.
