Effect Hope - Our long-awaited Christmas catalogue is finally on its way. We’ve been working away to collect photos, stories and information about how we can serve and support people affected by leprosy and other neglected tropical diseases.

Despite our dedication to serving others, we often encounter challenges along the way. We’re living in times of supply chain shortages, procedural changes and other unexpected setbacks. Surprise events have become the norm! But we have persevered and produced this catalogue with you in mind.

By purchasing gifts from our Christmas catalogue, you support people in need of physical healing, mental wellness, social justice. This year, we have a wide range of gift options, such as protective shoes, physiotherapy, and even mental health support.

This year, as you organize your Christmas gift list, consider giving a gift that can change a life. These gifts make a positive impact on individuals, families and communities that we serve. Together, we can provide a way to restore a person’s dignity and live productive lives. Click here to go to their digital Christmas catalogue. A printed copy is on the bulletin board near the offices.

Christian Relief Fund - This week we were sent a report card for Ambar G. A copy is below (in both English and Spanish) and a copy is posted on the bulletin board near the offices.

Be a Good Neighbour - Remember to check in with family, friends and neighbours. Also, local food banks are increasingly in need of food. Watch out for info regarding food drives in your area.

Prayers - For Tintern's prayer list, check out our website www.tinternchurchofchrist.ca. In the "Prayer Hub" button (top right corner or click here) is where you will find our list of prayers. You can also add prayers.
