As you may be aware, the Fellowship National Conference was held in Niagara Falls recently (November 11-13). It was a great time of reporting, learning, and encouragement for all those in attendance. Our FAIR team was encouraged by the opportunity to connect with pastors and representatives from Fellowship churches from across Canada. This year, we had a special display to celebrate and inform about the four child sponsorship ministries — Casa Hogar (Honduras), Cedar Home (Lebanon), Clementia Life Centre (Lebanon), and Love Trust (Sri Lanka).
On the Tuesday evening of the conference we were honoured to report some of the highlights of the past year, including the newest partnership with Pregnancy Care Canada (learn more about this exciting partnership HERE). We also shared the need represented in the Fall special appeal, Journey With a Child, which was the focus of our conference offering. We are pleased to report that through the generosity of those in attendance, an offering of $4,600 was collected. To date, we have received $21,500 towards the project goal of $80,000. Praise the Lord for His provision through His people!
Funds raised through the Journey With a Child appeal will help the four child sponsorship ministries through the transition to sponsorship as the primary avenue for support. Through the Fellowship’s child sponsorship program, children are given access to holistic care in Honduras, Lebanon, and Sri Lanka. These ministries provide for the physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual needs of children, ensuring they have the opportunity to know Jesus.
We are very thankful for those who have already chosen to partner with FAIR through Journey With a Child. As we approach the Christmas season, would you consider making Journey With a Child the focus of your Christmas offering?
Please pray that the Lord will touch the hearts of many to provide financial security for the child sponsorship ministries through this time of transition.
