This team from Sarah's maiden church was the first to come primarily to serve the refugee students of SMLC. Jay (Niroshan) started the school last year as a plan B when he couldn't get enough donations to get the young students into an existing school. He's a natural leader. Very few expressed support for him, if only because it seemed absurd that a refugee would start something like a school for refugee students; the school runs on God's grace. It is in this setting that the Charis mission team came to learn and love. They really gave their all and the students were very happy.
Please let me know if you want to make a donation to SMLC!
