Elaine Hofer plays in the puddles with four year old Raghad Riad Al Hamoud and three year old Ali Riad Al Hamoud.
Elaine Hofer and Paul Waldner are members of Green Acres Colony, near Wawanesa, Manitoba. Their Hutterite colony, along with Enes and Fata Muheljic from Wawanesa, worked with MCC Canada to sponsor a family from Syria. Hofer wrote about the day that they met Reyad Alhamoud, Najwa Hussein Al Mohamad and their two children at the Winnipeg airport.
