ACSI World Concerns Day

Last Wednesday I had the privilege to take part in World Concerns Day at Kingswood University in Sussex, New Brunswick. The Association of Christian Schools International hosted this event for it's schools in Atlantic Canada at the University. It was well attended with over 400 students from Christian Schools in PEI, NS and NB. I was asked to give two sessions and share some of the need for ministry among the First Nations People in Canada. There were several break-out sessions throughout the conference and I had between 30 and 40 students at each of mine.

I had the opportunity to share about some of the History and culture of the Mi'kmaq and Maliseet people and some of the challenges that exist in Cross Cultural Ministry. We talked about Worldview, Chronological Bible Teaching and Church Planting.

It was a blessing to be able to share with these young people in this way. I was excited to find out that one of our campers from Nova Scotia is a student at a Christian School that was attending the conference...

Tomorrow Liz, Ivy and I fly West to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan for meetings. We'll keep you posted as the week progresses!
