Vijay Krishnan will be sharing Bible teachings this week. Growing up as a pastor’s kid, the church was a part of Vijay’s life from the beginning. It was there that he met his Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ. The church provided Vijay opportunities to form friendships that have lasted for decades, learn about his spiritual gifts and abilities, and receive guidance from the generation ahead of him. However, during his university years and subsequent corporate work experience, Vijay discovered that for most people, the church was an obstruction (not a pathway) to finding God. He heard story after story of individuals who were sincerely seeking God but encountered hypocrisy, hurt, irrelevance and boredom. Truthfully, this discovery wrecked him. Vijay resolved that if he ever had a chance to be a part of a church community that was able to authentically (though not perfectly) introduce people to Jesus, he would jump in with both feet. God provided that opportunity here at The Well. http://thewell.ca
Terry M. Wildman
The First Nations Version New Testament is authored by Terry M. Wildman with input from the First Nations Version Translation Council and with input from Native reviewers. The First Nations Version was first envisioned by Terry M. Wildman and with the help of OneBook.ca and Wycliffe Associates has expanded into a collaborative effort that includes First Nations/Native Americans from over 25 tribes. This project was birthed out of a desire to provide an English Bible that connects, in a culturally sensitive way, the traditional heart languages of the over six million English-speaking First Nations people of North America. The First Nations Version Translation Council has been selected from a cross-section of Native North American-elders, pastors, young adults, and men and women from differing tribes and diverse geographic locations. This council also represents a diversity of church and denominational traditions to minimize bias. OneBook Partnered with Rain Ministries to develop the First Nations Version (FNV) of the New Testament. This is the first time OneBook supported the development of a Bible translation project in North America. By tradition, First Nations people are oral storytellers. The FNV is a retelling of the Creator’s Story—the Scriptures—following the tradition of the storytellers of these oral cultures. https://firstnationsversion.com
Niagara's Mobile Closet
Niagara’s Mobile Closet is a non-profit organization started during the pandemic when 2 friends noticed the desperate need for clothing among the vulnerable in their city (St. Catharine’s, ON). Their clientele is largely the unsheltered homeless, and low income. Converting a little used food truck (due to lockdowns) into a mobile clothing depot, Founder, Pam Nicholson has seen the demand and donations of clothing items grow in the region, as they drive to various shelters, detention centers, and assisted living homes to offer clothing and other basic necessities. As of June, they’ve helped more than 750 people in the area. Leslie a volunteers says: “Nothing can fill your heart more with joy when you give somebody something that can’t give you anything back, except their love and kindness.” NMC has also grown in partnerships with other non-profits by pooling and sharing resources. Organizations like the Niagara Furniture Bank has shared their space with Niagara’s Mobile Closet to store clothing donations. Others, like No Bare Bums has received diapers and baby clothing items from NMC. Socks and Snacks have donated food and suntan lotion. Beyond the Streets in Welland have dropped off coats in the winter. Fur coats donated to NMC have been passed to a local lady who forwards them to Nunavut where they are made into hats and gloves for children. A man sends clothing that doesn’t get used to Ghana… and the list goes on. Niagara’s Mobile Closet will be needing a new truck soon as the shutdown lessens and Itty Bitty Pie Co. wants their truck back. Pray that donations for a replacement truck come in. https://niagarasmobilecloset.com/
