He assists the families with food stamps, setting up utilities, finding housing, teaching home maintenance, and picking up students for English and Citizenship classes. He helps organize our Tuesday night activities for the Children’s Freedom Choir.  Aside from working with the refugees in our program he is a freelance trumpet player and gigs in and around the Nashville Area.
