Texas Baptist Hunger Offering Mission Trip to Canada, July 9-16, 2012
Texas Baptists are pledging their support to Canadian Baptists through gifts from the Texas Baptist Hunger Offering. Join us as we reach out to strengthen this partnership through hands-on ministry with Matthew House, ministering to refugees in Ottawa,Toronto, and Ft. Erie, Canada, receiving Texas Baptist Hunger Offering funds.
Matthew House wraps its arms around frightened and displaced refugees, like Josie, forced to flee Africa with her young daughter. “After leaving our home in Africa, scared and alone, God has given us a new family in Canada. The love shown to us at Matthew House has encouraged us to pick up our lives and start again.”
On this trip, we will:
- visit and pray with Matthew House refugees of all ages
- deliver furniture to a refugee family
- sort donations
- cook meals for refugee families,
- play games with newly arrived refugees
- work in the garden
- worship with refugee families
Visit Parliament Hill in Ottawa, see the beautiful Canadian countryside, stay at Niagara-on-the-Lake on Lake Ontario, with optional excursions to Niagara Falls and the theatre in Toronto.
