I met a new Yazidi friend yesterday. She wanted some help with her English composition class. Her older sister had been my student some years ago and told her to ask me because I help people. Her cousin told her the same thing because I helped him with his essays for Pharmacy School applications.
We met for lunch and talked for almost two hours. She came here with her mom, older sister, and two brothers as refugees after Daesh came into Iraq murdering thousands of Yazidi people. As she shared her story, I asked about her family. She teared up as she told me her dad was killed by Daesh. She is only 23 and has been through so much trauma.
Her goal is to graduate from the university and go to Pharmacy School like her cousin, I told her that I would like to meet her often to help her with her studies. I shared with her that in my faith Jesus taught that God loves us, so I like to help my Yazidi friends because God loves them. We will meet again this afternoon.
It is a blessing to know that my refugee and immigrant friends tell each other to ask me for help. Helping them is what God has called me to do.
So it is off to church and then after church I will meet my new friend at the coffee shop for a study session.
What will you do this Sunday?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

That’s really nice.

Thank you little sister. She is a sweet young woman who has been through so much trauma
You are welcome, big bro. 🤗
Wow. Thankful she is in a better place. Saying hello to her.
Have you seen snow yet?
Smiles. Yes, once and after that it hasn’t snowed. But it should later on as reported. Right now, we are enjoying the rainy days. 😀
Happy new week, big bro
Did you play in the snow ?
No, bro. 😁
Too much cold is not my friend. 🙂
I pray blessings to your new friend and her family. May they feel God’s love through you, Matt. Thank you for sharing. 🙂
Thank you little sister. She has been through so much trauma as has her family.
You will never fully know how many lives you have impacted this side of Heaven. But won’t it be cool too see it mapped out by Jesus?
Mapped out would be nice but I will be happy just to be there
Very nice. It is a comfort to them having you around for help. My Sunday was spent helping my mom. She had severe neck spasms and ended up in the ER, but she’s resting now. We go back to the arthritis doctor Monday.
Prayed for your mom
It is good to help others, I pray the lord comfort her.
Thank you for praying for her
U re welcome
It’s so amazing when others identify one with a unique and positive trait. Wishing you more grace to keep up the love. As for me, my students tagged me as being principled and sometimes rigid!! Not sure this is so good!!
Being considered principled is good
Blessings in your calling, Matt.
Thank you little sister 🙂
God bless your heart my sweet heated bro
Thank you little sister. Have a blessed weekend 🙂
