Below, with Eileen, is Geurder, aged 17, and her son Gavin.
They are refugees from the Congo and are being looked after by the Greek government at an educational establishment in Ilion, Athens. Geurder ’s first language is French and although she is learning English and Greek, she hopes to settle in France - one day. She is also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and has been all her life. Sadly though, her parents were killed and she has no other family who she can live with. But Geurder is not depressed or disheartened by her situation. She has faith and spirit that will help her on her way. It is people like Geurder, who since we arrived at the start of our mission have stirred our hearts and our minds.
If any wish to help in some small way, talk to our Helen who has just returned to England after spending a wonderful week with us. Below, the three of us at the Temple of Posieden on her last day here.
