Our special Guests today were:
Karen and Jeff Murray
w/ Sons Trevor and Connor
and, Tim and Sue Nielsen; shown below with their
three youngest children, and Grandma Helen
The Nielsens will be transitioning to International Teams by January 1, 2010. In their work with Refugees, they currently offer classes in English as an Additional Language (EAL); Homework Clubs; and Host-Family Programs. Lord willing, they may someday have a Transitional School for immigrant children. Winnipeg, where they are based, is the crime capital of Canada and a place where social problems abound. But they remain committed to preaching the Word.
Their goals for the coming year include: Putting in writing, an official set of Policies and Procedures as a church, as well as a Discipleship Plan. Autonomy, as a church, is also a goal.
Please keep the Nielsen Family in your prayers.
