OUR GLOBAL IMPACT

From the streets of Novokuxnetsk, Siberia, where Ilya and Janet Bansteev and their congregation minister to individuals struggling with addictions and AIDS: to our First Nation peoples where Dorothy Carbert and her team minister in little villages across Canada’s circumpolar north. From ancient Ethiopia and Kenya, lands filled with spectacular waterfalls and hot springs: to the heart of Southeast Asia. The Family Christian Centre is making a real difference through acts of kindness and deeds of mercy. Here in Wood Buffalo we make a difference by supporting various community ministries, i.e. the Food Bank, Centre of Hope, Kids-In-Mind, Ecole Dickinsfield School, Sister Mary Philips School, Fort McMurray Christian School, the Soup Kitchen, KAOS Christian Radio; and many others…

LOCAL

FEEDING PROGRAM

The feeding program is one of the most important parts of our work. We do this program in order to lift up the following people:

  • Orphans, people close to starvation, elders and deformed persons. Due to the starvation even the parents go to the extent of committing suicide. Much of this is a result of the civil war that took place here.
  • By providing the feeding program me we are able to rescue these lives and this gives us a way to preach the gospel to them.
  • The feeding program is the grass root level in our aim and this opens the door for us to move in to their society. Though we are in the forefront of the mission field we aren’t able to minister in this great field without your support. As we feel this we are thankful for you and uphold you in prayer. You are making a difference for Jesus in Sri Lanka!
