Summer Friends - African Refugees in St. Louis
During this summer, our son Stephen became friends with some African refugees in St. Louis. We learned that they wanted a bicycle. Skip thought about the idea of getting them a bike and realized that it would be financially difficult for our family to buy a bike for them. Skip asked the children to bring a bike that we could fix through Bike Works in St. Louis. Bike Works offers used bike parts at a reduced price. They open their bike shop for people to fix their bikes each week. We prayed and put out an email to the Covenant Seminary community to see if anyone could help. Two families responded and gave us bikes for these refugee children. Praise the Lord for his provision. The photos above are of the bike that was brought to Skip by the young child and what God provided through his people.
