When Sharon and Larry Wahala moved houses this month, their Somali friends, Samira and Ahmed insisted on helping them set-up their new home.


Ahmed and his son insisted on helping unload and organize boxes in the garage. Samira and a friend set up Sharon’s kitchen.


The Wahalas have been tutoring and in friendship with the couple for many years; in fact Samira and Ahmed’s family has been living at the Wahala’s rental home in the West Metro.

When the moving weekend arrived, Ahmed and his son insisted on helping unload and organize boxes in the garage. Samira and a friend set up Sharon’s kitchen.

“How do you write a story of such friendship?” asks Sharon, who is only able to reflect with an acknowledgement, “God, you are so good to me.”

How awesome it is to see our SALT volunteers receiving FROM their refugee friends?
