The house where First Nations outpatients and families of inpatients being treated at Kingston area hospitals is a scant 1/2 block from First Baptist Kingston. From time to time some visit our church. What would you suggest we do to give friendship and aid to them on a more continuous basis?
Hello Ruth! Contact Walter McIntyre, who will be happy and able to help you as you build ongoing friendships. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m from Toronto and for the past years as I have been invited I have gone to visit these Aboriginal families at the hospital or hotel. I just start by trying to build friendship and offer support prayer take them shopping, come home for a meal etc.
They are unlikely to go to church early, evening might be better. If they don’t want to for whatever reason be the church wherever they are.
Do you happen to know Levi Beardy as he had a heart for this kind of hospitality in Kingston he lives in Peterborough and we are connecting to try to build a visitation team.
Connect with Don/Iris Telford in Peterborough. She is First Nations and is already involved with Curve lake.
Pastor George Budd is also there. They would probably be interested in such a team.
Our Church, Curve Lake Christian Assembly situated on beautiful Curve Lake in the Peterborough area is thrilled about the upcoming conference. We are hoping Lord willing to send around 12 people to the event. Throughout the year we have community breakfasts with a short message and singing. We participate in many community events. Like all evangelism it’s not the programs but the interaction and friendship with people. We fellowship with an amazing group of people and continue to pray for open doors and open hearts. Rev. George and Beth Budd continue to be a blessing. Hope to see you at the April meeting. Forever in Christ, Iris.
