Eastern Field Christmas

This past week we've had Len and Lorrayne Breen with us and enjoyed spending time with them. On Friday all of the NCEM missionaries migrated to Arrowhead for a meeting and a time of fellowship and a wonderful Christmas Dinner. It's always a good time together.

Our meeting detailed some of NCEM's plans for future and ongoing ministry here in Atlantic Canada. We're all very excited about where things are going and just what the Lord is going to do here among Canada's First Peoples. NCEM is actively seeking applications from individuals who have a heart for ministry among the Mi'kmaq and Maliseet people here. We would love to have some couples come and join us in ministry here in Atlantic Canada!

Our ministry family!

Oh! Christmas Tree!

A fabulous time of fellowship and food!

Today a friend of mine sent me a link to a movie trailer. The movie is called 3rd World Canada, and after watching the trailer I am very interested in seeing the entire film. It deals with the issues of poverty, suffering, suicide and child welfare among Canada's First peoples. These are all real issues faced by many of Canada's First Nation communities, often overlooked and forgotten about as we enjoy many of the social benefits not readily available to all Canadians. The film follows the struggles of a family and community in Northern Ontario. Below is the trailer as offered by the film maker.
