Bill Bremner is 90!

Thank you: 

Dear Friends at Maple Grove United Church,

From Kerr Street Mission

Dear Friends,
We hope you are keeping healthy and safe. As we continue to live this new normal, we remain committed to serving all those who need us. We are distributing food six times per week to those that need it, and we are seeing an influx of new families that are in need of our support. Although we are serving and helping more people during this time, we are also feeling very blessed by the generous community that has surrounded KSM during this time of uncertainty.

The girl has made it to a refugee camp in Iraq, after being purchased out of sex “slavery” by her family. This is not an unusual situation.
