Mission Update: Being present with people. The Reverends John Wyminga and Shannon Bell-Wyminga find that it is often in the unplanned, informal times that God works most effectively in Cariboo Ministry’s Nazko and Area Dakelh Outreach. At a recent anniversary celebration, John and Shannon experienced many opportunities to share and pray with people who told stories of grief, spiritual concerns and thankfulness. Shannon shares, ‘No church building in sight, no formal worship or organized programs. We were just present with people. Our presence is a reminder that there is a Creator out there who cares for them and wants a relationship with them.” Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing support this ministry in British Columbia’s remote Cariboo region.
