Good Stuff in TEC: Michigan

Sudanese priest brings family from refugee camp to Grand Rapids.

Early Sunday, Char, only the second Sudanese priest in the U.S. Episcopal Church, brought his family home, to Grand Rapids. "I didn't lose hope when the process was very difficult," Char, pastor of Sudanese Grace Episcopal Church in East Grand Rapids, said Sunday. "I knew that God will open the way."

Char came to the United States in 2001 with other Lost Boys of Sudan who trekked 1,000 miles to flee civil war in their homeland. He left Thon at Kenya's Kakuma refugee camp where they both grew up but returned in 2004 to marry her.
