Finally fall, kiddos w/ long pants & Dessert in the Desert around the corner!

Hello October! This cool-ish morning our 3-year old son showed off his long pants (first time wearing them since last spring) and the house smelled like cinnamon raisin toast. It finally feels like fall in Phoenix!

And that means we’re super close to celebrating the Dessert in the Desert! It’s Saturday, Oct 19 at the Phoenix Airport Marriott (near 44th St and the 202).

Gluten-free? Chocolate fountain? Oh yes, we have them. Dessert begins at 6 pm and the presentation at 7.

Celebrate citizenship with new Americans from around the globe!

Invite a friend to see how English learning holds families together and moves people from refugees to American citizens.

But seating is limited, so RSVP today

I look forward to seeing you there!

We’ll celebrate citizenship with Tong, Say Pa, Khua Uk (Burma), Noor (Iraq), (you met in previous emails) and more new Americans as we ring in our 10th anniversary of serving refugees together!
