True Story: What God Wants Us To Do About Poverty Alyssa Esparaz, Compassion Canada
There is a lot of brokenness in our world—modern-day slavery, war, poverty… it can get really overwhelming. But the good news is that God is writing an incredible story of redemption for our world, and He is inviting all of us to play a part in it. When we understand brokenness and poverty from God’s perspective, we can begin to do something about it. Join us as we explore our role as Christians in God’s story of redemption for the world, and discover what God wants us to do about poverty.

On the Road with Jesus
Toe-Blake Roy, BLF Canada
This life is a journey full of choices; some choices are good and others are not so good. The choices we make determine not only what kind of journey we will have in this life but our earthly choices will also be echoed in all eternity. Jesus invites us to choose the narrow road because what really matters in the end is the destination.
At 16, the Lord called Toe-Blake to full-time service during a mission’s conference at his home church. Knowing this required attending Bible college, undertook the task of learning English, by moving to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (an interesting story by itself!). Since 2006 Toe-Blake has served as the director of BLF Canada which aim to reach French speaking people for Christ through evangelism, literature and pastoral training at home and oversea.
