Missions Trip – Matt Mensinga

My name is Matt Mensinga and I will be working with the Samaritan Foundation in Sosua in the Dominican Republic for one year. The Samaritan Foundation's focus is building villages to help the extremely poor have access to shelter, education, church facilities and medical treatment. They also partner with other groups to help staff these facilities and train local Dominicans so they can become increasingly self-sufficient. I am incredibly excited for this opportunity as it will allow me to use my construction knowledge to help people in need in a practical way!

I will be working directly with The Samaritan Foundation as the main construction supervisor. This will include overseeing new projects, organizing building projects for the teams that volunteer, supervising the local Dominican workers that work for the Samaritan Foundation, and even teaching construction classes at the trade school.

If you would be interested in supporting me in this work, either through prayer or financially, I would greatly appreciate it! You can donate online through The Samaritan Foundation's website or send a cheque to their head office but it is important to put my name in the message box online or on the cheque so they know who the money if for. Also, if you could let me know so I can keep track of it that would be fantastic! If you would like more information please feel free to contact me or visit The Samaritan Foundations website!

‘Adopt’ a University Student

Home Away from Home is a ministry that connects international students at the University of Calgary with a local church family. It has been very encouraging to hear stories of how it has touched both the students and the Skyview families who welcome them!  With new students expected to arrive in January, the program is looking for new families to match them with!  If you are interested in hearing more about this program or getting involved, visit their website and/or speak to Richard Ashton!   Join us this Sunday to learn more!

 

Did you know?

Here at Skyview we regularly support missions both right here in Calgary and world wide through our district and denomination, which you can learn more about at Nazarene Missions International, as well as through partnership with two specific ministries:

Youth unlimited calgary

Youth Unlimited is a community organzation that focuses on the support of young people through programs that assist them with all needs, from physical and emotional health and well being, spiritual support, employment support, and support of the whole family through times of difficulty.  Learn more about this organization here, or take a look at their latest newsletter.

 

Our district NYI (Nazarene Youth International) were recently challenged to join The Justice Movement – a voice for justice and compassion in the world. The movement is made of kids, students, young adults, families, and churches that believe they can make a difference in each other’s lives. The movement amplifies the voice of the weak and responds to their needs. A number of Skyview youth, young adults and leaders have taken up the Just Water challenge – drinking only water for a select period of time, while raising awareness and funds for the global water crisis. Read their stories on the Just Water page and see how you can encourage, pray for and donate.

   

Coffee for Guys!

Join a group of men for coffee conversation, and Christian fellowship. Men’s coffee is a great opportunity to discuss current events and sports, share burdens, and plan activities like hikes, hockey or service events. Come on out and contribute to the lives of fellow Christian men and bring a friend. This group meets every second Saturday morning at 9am at Cora's in Northland Mall.
