MISSION CAPSULES: Hummingbird Ministries, located in the lower mainland of B.C. is a healing ministry and a ministry of peace-building between First Nations, churches and Canadians. It offers a children's arts program, a healing circle, workshops, a gourmet cooking class and much more. A recent workshop for women on self image, dreams and compassionate communications provided teaching tools to help participants rise above negative situations. The workshop was led by a college instructor, who, through discussion, became aware of First Nations realities in Canada.

Your gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... are helping Hummingbird reach out with the healing love of God.
