Winter is coming. Think about the millions of Syrian refugee families who must endure the coming months living in a tent. You can help them with a warm coat, shoes and food. As God’s love is shown by acts of kindness, God then works in people’s hearts by His Word. Our partners in the Middle East have reported much interest in the gospel and many people coming to Christ.

I grew up as a missionary kid (MK) which involved several school changes over my formal education. I can count 10 different schools that I have attended in four different countries over a period of 19 years. I tell you this, not so you can feel bad for me. I thrived in those new environments. Overall, I look back on my formal education in a positive light. Although, some MKs have struggled greatly because of the multitude of changes in their education. Each experience is different.

But, on the other hand, without the necessary components of the physical hospital building, staff would have much less capacity to care for the needs of patients.

Imagine the culture shock that Daniel experienced, when he was forcibly taken to Babylon, a place that was foreign to anything he knew. Even though he was away from his family and familiar things,  he determined that he would maintain his integrity and his faith in God. Daniel demonstrated his creative ability to adapt to the Babylonian culture and demands, but he still maintained his commitment to his beliefs. He determined that the culture would not destroy the commitment he had to God, even if it meant opening himself up to persecution and death. Because of this determination, Daniel was used by God in several instances to make a difference in the culture.

Canada has a fifth of the world’s fresh water, although only 7% is renewable water supply with the rest held in lakes, underground aquifers and glaciers. I love the refreshing and invigorating sensation I get from jumping into one of Canada’s lakes in the summer. Once I brave the first few moments of cold chill, my body adjusts and I am glad that I took the plunge. It makes me feel fully alive. I also enjoy soaking in a hot tub set at just over 100 degrees F. The warmth relaxes my aching muscles and calms me. It makes me feel relaxed. One sensation that I do not enjoy is swimming in lukewarm water. I admit a heated pool does make it easier to break that water and submerge myself, but it does not take too long for me to lose my enthusiasm for a swim. It drains my energy.

The good news is that the evangelical church in Canada is growing. The bad news is that many younger Canadians are rejecting God and the church.

Imagine having to leave your home at a moment’s notice with only the things you could carry. Then imagine that you were not able to return for several years. You would be forced to live in tent housing with inadequate facilities. There would be no opportunity to earn a living and you would be dependent upon others to supply your basic needs. This is the plight of almost 4 million Syrians. Some have now been refugees for 4 years. It is estimated that half of the population of Syria has been displaced. Translating that to a Canadian context, we would have more than 17 million people displaced by war.
