      Dear Asylum Seeker, I wish there was something I could do to help you. Musa Moses, here in this blog, was not someone we personally helped. All we were able to do was give moral support. A mutual friend had asked us to keep Musa Moses in our thoughts and prayers, which we did. When we knew we would be in Bangkok where Musa Moses was in hiding and seeking asylum (having come from Uganda), we got in touch with him and spent some time with him. He brought his papers and explained to us his long, long process towards asylum. If I remember correctly, he was three years in Thailand, little by little, step by step, working towards asylum. At first glance, one may read the article thinking we had helped him in some significant way. That is not the case. We simply watched and waited and hoped on his behalf. Other Sheep does not work in the area of asylum. We do have a webpage that provides links to agencies that do help with asylum.
