Anglican Relief and Development Fund Canada (ARDFC) is partnering with the Anglican Diocese of Cameroon to provide a full service healthcare clinic in the city of Douala. It will offer inexpensive, quality care to people who do not have access to, or who cannot afford, health care and medications.
The clinic will be operated by the Diocese, which is part of the Church of West Africa, and is expected to provide care to about 1000 patients each month. The Diocese will ensure that patients have access to affordable care as well as hear the Good News of the Great Physician.
Read more about the project and donate online at the ARDFC website.
JUNE 17 - 22, 2018 | Jerusalem, ISRAEL
GAFCON 2018 will be held in Jerusalem, returning to the place where the movement began in 2008 when over 1,000 delegates acclaimed the inspirational Jerusalem Statement and Declaration. Attendance increased to over 1,500 for GAFCON 2013 in Nairobi and we expect a healthy increase in 2018.
“The Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) is enabling the Anglican Communion to be fit for God’s purposes in the twenty-first century. We are uniting Anglicans around the world in faithful witness to Jesus Christ and recovering Biblical truth where it has been compromised. There is much still to do, but we give great thanks to God for his grace at work among us.”
— Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, GAFCON Chairman & Primate of the Church of Nigeria
VERSE OF THE WEEK
John answered them, “I baptize with water. Among you stands one whom you do not recognize, who is coming after me. I am not worthy to untie the strap of his sandal!” These things happened in Bethany across the Jordan River where John was baptizing.
On the next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one about whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who is greater than I am, because he existed before me.’ I did not recognize him, but I came baptizing with water so that he could be revealed to Israel.”
John 1:26-31 (NET)
Collect of the week
Second Sunday after TRINITY
O Lord, who never fails to help and govern those whom you bring up in your steadfast fear and love: Keep us, we ask you, under the protection of your good providence, and make us to have a perpetual fear and love of your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
