Our EMCC liaisons, Marilyn McIlroy and Nicole Jones-Qandah, continue to be in regular contact with our friends and partners in the community of Gens de Nantes, Haiti, and have provide us with some messages of update from Haiti.


Our partners at the clinic Health Centre have shared that they have felt God's protection throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic.


Lab Technician, Portelus Brenos wrote: "When we received the news about the Corona virus, the staff sat down and there was a process to decide about the functioning of the clinic. Together, the staff decided that they wanted to work to keep the clinic open and functioning for the community. That made me very happy."  


He also expressed how the extra supplies of PPE and emergency support from the EMCC gave the staff more energy and desire to continue serving.

 

I thank EMCC World Partners, Albright church and all the families that have accepted/agreed to sponsor me in this work as a lab tech.  I ask God by his strength to guide and protect each one.  We are brothers and sisters, working together.  This is very good. Thank you for that." 


Nurse Keutely, who has faithfully served as the clinic for several years wrote: “God has been with us during this year.  He has protected us.  We did not encounter any serious illness in spite of the COVID pandemic. There was a lot of stress, but in the midst, our team made the decision to continue to go to work at the Health Centre. Our team works well together and there is collaboration.”   

 

“I am sending a big thank you very much to EMCC World Partners, to the Albright Church, all the team who is always thinking about us.  I ask God to continue to bless the whole team.”


Nurse Keutley (centre in blue) and her husband have 3 children, and provide care for 2 nieces

and a nephew (not shown) they have taken in to live with them.


We continue to be thankful for the clinic staff's passion to care diligently for the people in their community.

The Integrated Education & Agriculture Initiative continues to move forward through our partner Hernso Philogene, and the teachers at the school. This program provides 50 beneficiary students and their families with the opportunity to participate in education in Farming God’s Way.   


The teachers are having more regular in-home visits with the families of their beneficiary students and are finding ways to not only progress the teaching of Farming God's Way, but are also having opportunities to encourage families and build stronger relationships of trust and support. These visits have allowed openings for discussions on hygiene practices, good nutrition, or to encourage them to visit the clinic when ill.


You can learn more about this EMCC initiative here:  https://www.emcc.ca/world-partners/what-we-do/integrating-development/haiti-gens-de-nantes-education-and-agriculture/


We are grateful to hear these encouragements of how our Haitian partners continue to steward well all of the resources God has put into their hands. Please continue to pray for them and celebrate them as we move forward in partnership together!

With a heart to encourage others through the pandemic, members of our Albright Church Choir gathered virtually to record the song 'The Blessing' during the pandemic. 


For our church family, our neighbors, and our city as we continue on:

"The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."   Numbers 6:24-26


Feel free to share the link and to bless others in your circles and pray for God's favor to be upon them!

We all know that exercise is a good thing but knowing it and doing it are two different things. My doctor always asks me if I am exercising. I mention that I like walking and I'm always tempted to say that I preach! It is probably one of my main work outs! Sadly, with a new studio, I now sit on a stool to preach, so there is less jumping! Physical exercise has always been important but especially at a time when there is less opportunity and we are at home more.


The Bible says, "Physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all  things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come." We don't often think about spiritual training for many of the same reasons that we do not exercise physically. We think we are okay as we are, we hope to do it some day and we think it won't be of much benefit. Sometimes we try it for a while but we have little desire and discipline.


Walking is such a great exercise physically but we also need to make sure that we walk with God everyday. This will mean seeking Him first in prayer and in His Word. Making sure we have times of solitude. Listening to God and maybe keeping a journal. Taking notes when God's word is preached. Using our gifts to serve others. Connecting with others for fellowship and discipleship. Living a life of daily confession, repentance and faith. Walking together with others.


Take time to ask God which spiritual disciplines He is asking you to activate in your life and, share what they are with someone else and do it! Our greatest motivation is that God calls us to walk with Him and to be changed into His likeness. We never exercise alone but we always exercise by faith. Keep fit in 2021!

There is nothing quite like the smell of fresh scones or cookies baking in the oven! Everyone is drawn in anticipation. This year, God is calling us to prayerfully and practically move into new spaces to spread the fragrance of Christ's Kingdom presence by our words and actions. 


My prayer is that God will give us confidence and courage in Him to step into existing and new spaces. One way we can do this is by asking a second question which shows that we really love and want to listen to someone's heart. Let's slow down and listen this year and spread the fragrance of Jesus wherever He leads us. A freshly baked set of cookies would help also!


~ Pastor Sam

"When COVID hit, we wondered... How were we going to be able to keep our commitment to the campaign?"


When COVID first hit here in Winnipeg, my husband and I were concerned. Our concern was not about catching this illness, however, but about the financial impact. When schools closed and most businesses quickly followed, and people began self-isolating, we could see the potential negative impact all of it could have on our finances.


I am a full-time stay-at-home mom so Graham is the only income earner. Graham works at a car dealership and all he earned came from commission. Even though the dealership was allowed to stay open, with people quarantining themselves at home and heavily avoiding stores, etc., Graham had virtually no one to sell to which meant virtually no income. We wondered... How were we going to be able to keep up with bills, mortgage payments, pay for necessities, etc.?


When the Albright Capital Stewardship Campaign was introduced in the fall of last year, we prayerfully considered how much to commit to giving. We both felt God telling us to commit an amount that wouldn’t be easy but sacrificial. So, in surrender, we committed to giving, for the next three years, a portion of our annual tax return as well as a certain amount of money per month in addition to our tithe. When COVID hit, we wondered... How were we going to be able to keep our commitment to the campaign?


But God. God, our loving, heavenly Father graciously provided.


Back in February, Graham submitted our taxes, which was unusually early for him to do. But God knew and He provided. We received our tax return during COVID and it was enough to get us through the months of virtually no commission and income. We were able to pay the necessities, and keep our commitment to Albright’s capital campaign.


When Graham’s dealership starting letting people go due to lack of business, Graham retained his job and took on extra responsibilities. We wondered if going on E.I. would be better. But God knew and He provided. Graham’s boss was so impressed with his work during the first few months of COVID that Graham was given a promotion with both commission and salary.


We both firmly believe that when you surrender to God with open hands, and follow Him in trust and obedience, God provides in ways beyond our thinking. At the “We Surrender, God Builds” Banquet in the fall of last year, Pastor Sam said, “When God asks us to step out in faith and we obey, we begin to see miracles that we never could have seen otherwise.” We know this to be true. We’ve experienced living in the overflow of God’s generosity.
