MISSION CAPSULES: Established by a partnership between the Presbyterian Church in Canada and the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria, the Nigerian Presbyterian Mission ministers in the Greater Toronto area. The Mission is a family, a supportive faith community where people experiencing life in a new country can feel like they belong. Recently, a young Nigerian man arrived in Toronto from Vancouver, hoping to get in touch with a relative. Instead, he found himself stranded in a vast city where he knew no one. The Mission helpd him get settled. He is now in school, attends church and Bible studies regularly and sings in the choir. He is thrilled to have an adopted family, and a home away from home. Presbyterians Sharing ... is helping this Mission to reach out to and welcome Nigerians in the name of Christ.
