We recently celebrated the one year anniversary of the arrival of our newcomer family from the Democratic Republic of Congo! They made it through so many challenges before coming to Canada and their strength and adaptability are serving them very well here so far. We shared some cake after church to mark the occasion.

The Dardar family was invited by the Mayor of St Catharines to attend the State of the City luncheon. Bashar and Afifa posed for a photo and made the front page of the paper. They feel very safe here and they were happy to meet the Mayor! (Photo from the St Catharines Standard, Jan 30, 2016).
We sponsored a family from Syria and they are here! You can learn more about them in the slideshow available in two different formats at the following links:
