Thank you very much for all the expressions of sympathy, support and encouragement received following my dad’s passing on June 11, 2017.  Your emails, cards, attendance at the funeral service, and other expressions of support were humbling, honouring, overwhelming and very much appreciated.  Special thanks to Pastor Kevin Klassen for his help with both the pre-recording and playing at the service of some special music.  Last week was definitely the most physically, mentally and emotionally draining week of my life.  Your support, thoughts and prayers definitely powered me through that week.  I wish many blessings and much love upon all of you. With very best regards, Norm Piel.

On behalf of the Meadowood Manor Foundation Board of Directors, a heartfelt thank you to those who graciously supported the Meadowood Manor Annual Fundraising dinner held on May 25. Together we raised $23,670.00; the proceeds will be designated 50% to the Chaplaincy and 50% to special projects.  These funds enhance the lives of Meadowood Manor’s residents, tenants, their families & friends, and staff.

Missionary Newsletter – Campbell-Requia-May-2017-Newsletter

The Muslim month of Ramadan, which is a 30-day period of prayer and fasting, begins on May 27. Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam and involves abstaining from eating, drinking, smoking, and having sexual relations from sun-up to sun-down. It is required of all healthy adult Muslims, though children often participate as well. While observing Ramadan is a requirement of their faith, many Muslims fast with the hope of drawing closer to Allah. For those who are sincerely seeking the Truth, Ramadan is often a time of experiencing dreams and/or visions of Jesus.
Imagine the impact that we could have by praying for our Muslim friends, neighbours, and the approximately 1.8 million Muslims around the world during this time! Every year, WorldChristian.com publishes a small booklet called ’30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World.’ This helpful resource is available in a downloadable format from: http://www.30daysprayer.com/ for $2.50. There are also some hard copies available for free at the information center. In addition, during each day of Ramadan, there is a link available on the website to see the daily prayer article at no cost.
Will you commit to spending a few minutes in prayer for the Muslim world during Ramadan? Follow this link to find out what the booklet is about: https://vimeo.com/210156359
