Northern Alberta Diaconal Conference: 

Coming up in July there are two events that NADC is co-organizing that help answer the question "so what are the next steps in reconciliation with our Indigenous brothers and sisters?" One of the answers is LITERALLY STEPS! Inspired by a group from BC doing a reconciliation walk, we have partnered with the Edmonton Native Healing Centre and Poundmaker's Lodge Treatment Centres to plan a walk in downtown Edmonton on July 11th. With ceremony starting at 10 a.m. and the walk at 1 p.m, there is an opportunity to connect and be a part. To save the date and let me know that you want to be a part of this reconciliation event check out the eventbrite link to register. Please share this link with anyone you know who is interested in Aboriginal Ministries or wanting to live out the TRC's calls to action. More details are also at the link. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/walking-common-ground-nadc-tickets-8717314723 The other event is a condensed, one-day learning journey of the Canadian Aboriginal Ministries resource called Living the 8th Fire. It will be taking place from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday July 14th. Spaces are limited for this so check out the links to register your spot.

PERSECUTED CHURCH

Nepal 

 For the past several years, the church in Nepal has been growing at a significant rate. Christians have shown the love of Christ by caring for orphans, fighting human trafficking, and providing necessary job training. Recognizing the benefits, even the communist government requested assistance from the church. The challenges being experienced due to opposition have also been on the increase. Hindu nationalism in India has spread into Nepal, bringing with it a push for anti-conversion legislation and threats against Christians. Pray that these believers will not be fearful, but rather would stand firm in the power and love of God; 2 Timothy 1:7. May they continue conveying His love and peace to many others in Nepal's community’s through their various humanitarian and evangelistic outreaches.
