Did you see this article in the news over the weekend?

Italian police have found more than 100 immigrants, including 24 Afghan children, living in the sewer system beneath railway stations in Rome.

The children range in age from 10 to 15 years and are now being looked after by the city’s social services.

…Railway police had been following up reports that groups of homeless immigrants were living in unhygienic conditions in and around Rome’s three main railway stations.

Police said the Afghan children appeared to have arrived in the Italian capital as stowaways on board trailer trucks arriving from Turkey and Greece.

I can’t help but wonder if we might recognize some of these children from our refugee center.  It breaks my heart to picture some of the faces that have passed through Athens over the previous year.   Please continue to pray for the refugee situation here in Greece and across Europe.  This is truly a God-sized problem – a problem that will not find a solution in political or social work.  No, we need a work of God!  We cannot neglect to continually bring it before Him in prayer.
