The high yesterday in Asmara, Eritrea was 20C, but these new Owen Sounders from that warm country are gleefully embracing our Canadian winter. Here they are at Dual Acres wagon and sleigh rides near Shallow Lake, with owner and driver Durk DeVries.

Saba, on the left next to Donna Jansen, just arrived a few months ago and will soon be looking for a job. Sham and Natu attend St. Mary's High School in Owen Sound; Sham also works part-time at Montana's and Natu at East Side Mario’s.

The three were sponsored by the Owen Sound Alliance Church and Calvary Missionary Church.

Thanks to Murray Jansen for taking this happy picture.
