“My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”

Happy New Year! We have so much to be thankful for, starting with you, our prayer warriors. Since beginning our monthly prayer guide we've truly felt God directing us more clearly. We are paying more attention to his will for us and you are a huge part of that. We can't thank you enough!
The Christmas Parcel Drive is behind us and we're grateful for each person who gave towards the 1584 gifts we received and distributed.
DEC 3: Give thanks for the J'm Montreal youth group who came to help pack parcels this year.
DEC 5: A new group of 18 immigrant adult ed students were so encouraged by the ministry here when they came for a talk and tour that they took up an impromptu collection to bless us.
Captain Colin Davidson and the crew of the Highland Eagle wrote a letter and enclosed a donation after thoroughly enjoying our Christmas Games evening. Their words truly encouraged us.
DEC 10: Give thanks for the three organizations that came together to eat, pack parcels and get to know each other: Catholic Women's League, Teen Haven group home girls and the Board of Directors from Disarm, an organization that combats trafficking.
DEC 24: The Christmas Eve Open House was teeming with people and the service was well attended.
DEC 26: Janet and Jane, two new volunteers, enjoyed serving and we're excited that our volunteer program is beginning to thrive once again after a period of transition.
DEC 31: God provided for our financial needs and blessed us with a new van!
Thank you for praying!
