Ahnii.* On Thursday, January 29, the Senior Missions team hosted the Wikwemikong Native Outreach Support Night. The event was well attended despite the snow storm earlier in the day.
The missions team shared with the audience their passion and their journey with God. Their intuitive ways of sharing the gospel, including “chemical cross” and telling stories through story board, brought lots of awe and laughter.
This year, the Senior Missions team will be going to Wikwemikong. Wikwemikong is one of the ten largest native First Nation communities in Canada. Situated on the eastern end of Manitoulin Island, Wikwemikong is home to a vibrant aboriginal community with a rich history dating back to the mid 1600s. Since 1998, Shirley Hamilton and her team in DayStar Native Outreach have been ministering to the people of Wikwemikong. Their dream is seeing godly Native leaders raised up to show the people in their communities that there is a God who loves them – a God who loves them personally, deeply and passionately.
The PCA Senior Missions team will be partnering with DayStar ministry to do service projects for the community and run afterschool programs with the local children. Through these efforts, they will reach out to the people to let them know that there is a God who loves them deeply.
The Support Night ended with a time of prayer. The sending team leader, Mr. Atkinson, led everyone in a closing prayer.
Please continue to pray for the PCA Senior Missions team. If you would like to support them, please drop off your donation with the school office or click here.
