A few weeks ago, a new refugee family came to Everyday Basics, our toiletries pantry. As their two children walked in and around our clothing bank called Addie’s Attic and the Augusta Community Warming Center we noticed the boy, around third grade, was wearing the blue shoes in the picture. His sister, who was around the same age, was wearing water shoes! Neither had socks and outside we had just had about 7 inches of snow. We tried to ask their mom and the little girl if they had warmer shoes at home but their English was as bad as our Arabic. Then I remembered that another little boy from the Iraqi community had showed me the Google translate app on his dad’s phone a few weeks ago. After that, I had downloaded it, and so I pulled out my phone and typed “shoes” in and out came أحذية and that worked! We tracked down Diedrah and Dan from the Warming Center who brought out their magical box of boots and then we found them socks from Addie’s Attic. Watching the grace and compassion shown as those two helped those two children find the right size boot was a gift from God.
