This is Argentine and Mapendo and their families (total of 9 people) arriving in the airport in Alberta, Canada.  They had been living as refugees in Canada for the last 2 years.  This was their first time in an airplane and it was a long and exhausting journey but they were so thankful to arrive.

I was gathered with a group from AIRSS (Athabasca Interfaith Refugee Sponsorship Society) to great them at the airport.  It had been 9 long years since I last saw Argentine and Mapendo.  What a beautiful reunion it was!
