96: Seeking asylum and finding a church family with the Seruyanges
We’re in the business of telling you stories of transformation and hope—and sometimes, we get the chance to show you.
If you head to caringmagazine.org/video, we have an entire library of firsthand accounts of hope found with the help of The Salvation Army.
From a teen roasting her own coffee to bring water to Ethiopia, to a couple serving people living out of their vehicles, to a father who had lost everything to addiction and finally found healing and got his family back.
In this episode, I want to share with you one of these stories of hope.
The Seruyange family fled their home in Uganda in search of safety for their young children. They arrived in the U.S. seeking asylum in 2018 and found themselves alone in San Bernardino, California.
After a serendipitous encounter with The Salvation Army, the Seruyange’s journey to freedom and safety brought them to a new hope and a new church family. It would change the course of their lives.
