Prayers please!!

I found out before I left school last night that one of my students and her family may be deported.

She is a refugee from Africa and they have been in Canada for four years. I'm unclear as to the particulars, but I know from the school secretary that they have been pleading their case, but their request is falling on deaf ears.

This student is one of my bright lights, and in a tough class she really stood out. She has thrived living here and I know that the conditions that she would return to would be horrible.

Please pray that the bureaucrats in charge see the light and let them stay!
