These doctors were not equipped to perform the necessary, high-risk operation so this past Fall, Juan went to the Boston Children’s Hospital in the USA who confirmed the Colombian Doctor’s diagnosis...

Ontario Elections June 7th

voteelectionsI [Care Baldwin] am not the type of person to be consumed by political news or engage in political debates. I just try and be as educated as I can be and make my voice heard by exercising my democratic right to vote.
But I know it’s easy to get caught up in the fear and division that surrounds election time.

Here are a few ways I have learned to respond:

Visit focusonthefamily.com/easter for some great ideas, like using bunny rabbit to teach some of the characteristics of Jesus that we should all try to have. For example, Bunnies...
are white as snow because Jesus takes all sin away (Isaiah 1:18b);
are gentle, kind-hearted and forgiving (Ephesians 4:32);

A Mother's Plea

kaden 330A mother and her 3 year old son were driving home late when flooding took place at the Grand River.
With the fog, she could not see the barrier and the flood swept their vehicle off the road and into the lake. Michelle (mother and driver of the vehicle) managed to get her and her son free – however the current swept her son Kaden and he has been missing ever since – now 3 weeks.... This is every mother's worst nightmare.
There have been search parties happening ever since with people near and far contributing their time in the search for Kaden.

Please pray that that Kaden is brought home to his family.
Pray for daily strength, guidance, love and healing.

Rev. Billy Graham: Just As I Am

billygraham18"My one purpose in life," he said, "is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which, I believe, comes through knowing Christ."

It is with sadness that we learned about the passing of The Rev. Billy Graham this morning, at the age of 99 in his North Carolina home.

Thank you, Rev. Graham, for your life-long dedication to sharing the Gospel.

(Click here to watch the memorial service at the U.S Capitol, featuring Michael W. Smith singing "Just As I Am", on February 28, 2018)
