“From our Hearts to Yours”

Dear Friends and Partners,

Thank you for your partnership in ministry during 2016 We made many steps forward this year with an increased volunteer base in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, and connections made in Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador. We established two new teams in Nova Scotia to provide small group studies in prison. The Angel Tree Christmas program reached every Province in the Atlantic, with over 300 children receiving gifts. We are so proud of the local church communities who so willingly sponsored all these children and then went on to sponsor children in other regions_ While the Atlantic region may not be rich, it is still blessed with a strong sense of community and caring for each other. Initial connections were begun in 2016 to begin the launch of one of our greatest needs and opportunities_ the care of those released from prison (aftercare). The will be an area of focus and development in 2017.

Another area of focus will be to increase the existing chapters to have a minimum of 4 people on each team.

A third focus for 2017 is increasing our funding base.

Fourth, with the breakdown of the family unit being at the heart of so many of the symptoms society is facing, increasing family programs in the Federal Corrections, will be a goal for 2017.

More important than anything else, prayer is foundational to all than anything else, prayer is foundational to all that we do, and we covet the prayers of the church to cover us and this ministry.

To get nations back on their feet, we must first get dawn on our knees. —Billy Graham
Prayer is the exercise of drawing on the grace of God. — Oswald Chambers

In His Service,

Jonathan and Sue Ellen English
Atlantic Regional Directors
