Mission Moments Ready to go back to work

Presbyterians Sharing is helping to transform the lives of people in Montreal’s Little Burgundy neighbourhood. The statistics for Little Burgundy are grim: 2/3 of children and youth live below the poverty line and 32% of students drop out before finishing high school. But Tyndale St.-Georges Community Centre is helping provide community members with the tools they need to realize their dreams, at every life stage. Tyndale’s employment programs not only teach job search techniques, but also build self-esteem and life skills. Jane shares, “I came to Tyndale during the lowest time in my life, and I decided to give it a shot. I was looking for something to bring back my self-confidence that would enable me to go back to the workforce. And Tyndale delivered exactly what I was looking for. And now I’m strong, I’m back again, and I’m ready to go back to work!”

Presbyterians Sharing helps people transform their lives and realize their dreams

We Pray For

Heavenly Father, as we start a new calendar year, may we ever be strengthened in the knowledge of your presence as we get back into our routines. Please bless our children returning to school and be with us as the weather gets unpredictable and keep us safe in our travels. May we see the start of the new year as refreshed in your spirit. We pray for those in need, especially for David Bertram, Heather Ford, Louise Weeks, David MacIntyre, Eddy Dykerman,Wendell Nicholson, Gwen Henry and Aneila River- Watts. May the words of our mouths and the actions of our hands all bring Glory, Honour and Praise unto Christ. Amen
