After resetttling Southeast Asian refugees in 1979, it had been my desire to work in a refugee camp. With three little children, this dream seemed impossible. However, in the year 2000 when the kids were out of the nest and my husband had decided to retire the opportunity arose to travel to the Osire refugee camp outside of Windhoek, Namibia with a group from my church. Andrew Cole, the son of a missionary who had spent his early years in Angola was anxious to find friends he had grown up with who had fled the civil war in Angola. Nineteen of us traveled to Windhoek in May of 2000 to confront what became a lifechanging experience for all of us.
