MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... introduce the love of Christ to children in Ndazkoh, British Columbia. As part of their outreach to people living in and around Ndazkoh, the Revenends Jon Wyminga and Shannon Bell Wyminga run a Kids Space program in the Ndazkoh school. Through songs, activities and discussions, the children - 90% of whom come from the Ndazkoh reserve - learn about the love of God. This program not only ministers to the children, but is a witness of Christ's love for parents and the whole community to see the love and care Jon and Shannon share with their children. This is an important ministry for a community still struggling with the consequences of the residential schools. Pray for the children attending the kids space program and for the ongoing ministry of Jon and Shannon.

More from the children -

Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter. Jared, age 8.

My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth. Ashley, age 9.

Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets and if they don't make the animals get better, they help the child get over it. Vicki, age 8.

What I don't get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them. Sarah, age 7.

Have a good week. MB
