Read the full newsletter here: Alberta Regional Newsletter – Winter 2017
Greetings and many thanks to our supporters, volunteers and PFC staff in other provinces, as we press in further to this new year of 2017.
There have been some significant changes since the last newsletter. The federal institution at Bowden has continued to be the focus of PFC’s ministry in Central Alberta, though
the emphasis has now changed to pastoral replacement and assistance in Sunday services, rather than in tutoring of inmates taking Bible college courses. However, new developments are birthing as we look further north. We ask for your prayers for the Edmonton Institute for Women and the Edmonton Maximum as we seek to build new chapters of volunteers from local churches to serve these institutions. I have made two trips to the Edmonton area in the last six months and I am excited at the potential to grow PFC’s ministry in this area. In addition, our existing chapter in Calgary has been very active. Having completed the orientation at the Calgary Correctional, I was able to accompany one bible study team as they shared with some inmates on Feb 4th.
