SPOKANE, Wash., November 25, 2014 - After a recent plea for help to the Spokane area Adventist Churches to provide clothing and housing items for  a group of refugees at the West Central Multi-Cultural Church, they say, Thank you, thank you! And just like Moses who had to say, "enough," to the Israelites when they were more than generous in building the sanctuary, the church also has to say, "Enough, thank you, but we don't need any more." Your help with bringing warmth to our Congolese brothers and sisters just in time for the cold winter days is greatly appreciated. 

The  following churches and entities helped with the refugee project through the Multi-Cultural Church: Otis Orchards, South Hill, Deer Park, Chewelah, West Plains, Countryside, Positive Life Radio (KEEH), Other individuals along with  those who prayed.

Mable Dunbar, the pastors wife of the Multi Cultural Adventist Church says, "The appeal for donations has been overwhelming. Our thanks to everyone who responded! Please inform everyone that we have enough donations to help these families. However, we are still taking donations for new families that come, but ask that the donations be delivered at Cleone’s Closet Thrift Store, 1515 South Lyons Road in Airway Heights. The new families will be able get free items from the thrift store as they are in need. And items that the families do not want will be sold in the thrift store to benefit victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse." Mable praises God for the generosity of His people. She says, "Someone reminded me that it is at the grassroots that things really happen which certainly was the case in this situation."
