Teen Challenge: Oct. 26/08

Robby Ahuja and his team from Teen Challenge Thunder Bay were our special guest speakers at Northwood Park Church this past Sunday. Robby told us about the program and he, Brian and Dwayne told us about God's work in their lives, especially in connection with overcoming addictions.




I chose this sweater to wear not knowing that
Robby was going to give me a matching hat (and tshirt).

Dr. Suzuki "at" Lakehead University: Oct. 21/08



I was there when "the Doc" said he'd told Elizabeth May that there should be no Green Party. What a non-news news story!

Whether you agree with him or not re. enviro issues, his statement makes perfect sense. It's similar to what preachers, missionaries and camp leaders say about wanting to work themselves out of a job (although I suspect that they are usually lying).

There was one more pic, but it would be a spoiler.

We open on Nov. 20th at Wesley United Church (the sanctuary!) at Miles & Brodie Sts.

MEMO Cuba Crate-Packing: Oct. 18/08

I helped out a bit at the MEMO Cuba (Medical Equipment Modernization Opportunity) crate-packing day. MEMO sends perfectly good (but non-digital) equipment discarded in Thunder Bay to rural hospitals in Cuba. (Then team members travel there and ensure that it is installed and that the personnel are trained.)

The labour and equipment are donated, but each crate costs $9,000.00 to ship.


Dr. Harvey tests out the equipment.



Every available space is used in the crate.

MEMO Cuba Dinner: Oct. 17/08

.

Several of us attended the Dinner in support of MEMO Cuba (Medical Equipment Modernization Opportunity), associated with the Evangelical Free Church, which sends perfectly good (but non-digital) equipment discarded in Thunder Bay to rural hospitals in Cuba. (Then team members travel there and ensure that it is installed and that the personnel are trained.)

The labour and equipment are donated, but each crate costs $9,000.00 to ship.




Here are a few pictures from the crate-loading that took place the next day:
