December 18: Accompanying people on their healing journey

The Rev. John Wyminga and Rev. Shannon Bell-Wyminga are ministers with the Nazko & Area Dakelh Outreach in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. Shannon shares, “This ministry is about walking the long road with the people of Nazko and the surrounding area. More and more we realize that God is calling us to accompany people on the journey. We walk with them through the tragedies, the grief and the trauma that continues due to poverty, racism and the legacy of the past. We celebrate with them new births, milestones and treatment centre graduations. The power in Jesus’ ministry was all about incarnation – God being present in real flesh. As we live that incarnation of Jesus’ love, we trust that God’s power will also be manifest as we walk the long walk to healing in our communities. Thank you for sharing this love and vision through all your support.
