Refugees graduate from Global Institute of Lansing

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) Six adult refugees graduated from the Global Institute of Lansing Monday.

One man who fled the civil war in Sudan that killed 2 million people was in disbelief that people volunteered their time to teach him. Legu Joseph Rekpe said, "I don't know how to thank them, I don't have enough words, I don't have enough words to thank them but I always appreciate what they're doing in our lives and I hope God can bless them to do more for the next group to come."

The Global Institute of Lansing is a non-profit that works with Lansing Community College, St. Vincent Catholic Charities and Lutheran Social Services to help refugees settle in Mid-Michigan and get an education.
