LYNN — Kiki Idrisa lives in a high-ceiled apartment on Essex Street, but the people he calls his family, along with his twin brother, Yusufu, are fellow East Coast International Church worshippers.

Idrisa, 27, spent most of his life in African refugee camps until 2012 when refugee assistance agencies helped him get to the United States. He is one of roughly 80 refugees from nations around the world who are resettled in Lynn annually, according to Catholic Charities of Boston statistics.
