MISSION CAPSULES:

Presbyterians Sharing ... helps Edmonton Urban Native Ministry support First Nation people in Edmonton's inner city. Local congregations host a weekly Sunday worship service, followed by a fellowship meal. Weekly Tae Kwon Do classes and an annual vacation Bible school provide healthy activities for children and youth. Four days a week the ministry's drop-in centre offers hot meals, a food and clothing bank, the use of computers, a phone/fax service and bus tickets. With help, support and prayer, Harold was able to find sobriety and stability in his life and is now one of the most helpful volunteers at the centre. With his history of addiction, he can relate to people at the drop in centre and is a trusted friend. "This is evidence of God's work," says the Rev. Sungill Tim Choi, the ministry's director.
