Mandarin Baptist Church Volunteers Prepare the Way for New Burmese Family Arriving in Jacksonville!

Home Sweet Home

   Thank you Mandarin Baptist Church for welcoming a new Burmese family to Jacksonville.  11 volunteers from Mandarin Baptist Church came together to set up the apartment for a refugee family who will arrive this week. This group collected furniture, home goods and food to prepare the way for this family.        In less than 4 hours an empty apartment was transformed into a haven of beauty.  Donated furniture, pictures for the walls, accent rugs and family heirloom flatware grace this new home.

The volunteers from Mandarin Baptist Church are excited to meet the family at the airport and assist them to their new home.  The 12:05AM arrival time makes it all the more thrilling for them.  For the next three months these volunteers will help tutor English, provide cultural orientation and friendship with a new Burmese family. Way to go Mandarin Baptist Church for welcoming refugees to our city and for blessing them with your friendship.
