Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
1 John 3:18
Here are some of the initiatives in which we are personally involved. Our team is dedicated to these ministries and we hope to grow this list as we move along.
While we are not corporately affiliated with these organizations, we definitely support their initiatives and assist in any way that we can.
These ministries are dedicated to making a direct impact on the lives of the people in the communities they serve. We hope to bring more awareness to their missions.
A home, support and advocacy for refugees.
Adam House provides refugee claimants with clean and safe living accommodations. The staff at Adam House provide assistance and advice with immigration procedures, primarily to our residents and former residents. We provide referrals to legal services, medical assistance, and community resources. However, Adam House is much more than shelter or the services we provide. Adam House is home. A place where residents find friendship and support-from our staff and each other. Adam House is also a place where refugee claimants can find hope for their future, as we pray with them through their difficulties, and celebrate their successes. We encourage our clients to contact us for continued support, even after they find permanent homes and move into the community.
Ben Schroeder is an SIM missionary who is working among the Fulani people of Nigeria in discipleship, literacy, and evangelism. Originally going to Nigeria to help start a trade school to empower youth in the community, Ben began to see the many needs of the Fulani people. Outsiders, on the fringes, and even hated, the Fulani are one of the largest nomadic people groups in the world who have yet to be penetrated with the Gospel. Burdened by both the physical and spiritual need of the Fulani people, Ben seeks to be used by God as a vessel to spread hope among these people.
“GEM exists to plant the gospel in the hearts of children and their families, all over the world, through quality education.” – GEM website
Global Education Ministries (GEM) uses education as a tool to share the gospel. We plant Gospel-Saturated schools that are affordable and accessible to all in the community. Our mission is for children and their families to hear and witness the gospel daily through classroom instruction, discipline, gospel-motivated relationships and a gospel example so that many more may come to know and accept Christ as their Saviour.
In 2021-2023, Lorissa will be teaching music & choir for Grades 1-6 at the GEM school, Manantial, in the small town of Puerto Escondido, Mexico. She is very excited to share the hope, truth and joy of the gospel through song as she teaches children about music, how to sing, and about the Glory of our God reflected in all things.

Save more than money!
Mission Thrift Store is a volunteer-driven, non-denominational Christian organization that currently operates more than 50 thrift stores across Canada.
We provide used goods in a department store-like experience for value-conscious shoppers, who can find deals they can feel good about. Our stores convert donated goods into cash, and the net revenue is devoted to the joint ministry of BFM Foundation (Canada) and Bible League Canada to support leadership and literacy programs in over 43 countries — giving people access to the life-giving, life-changing, Word of God.
Staff and volunteers believe there is a deeper purpose to everything in life, including shopping. Our mission is to save you money, save the planet and tell the world about the saving work of Christ.
To make the living, life-giving, life-changing Word of God accessible to people everywhere.
- A cleaner, greener planet and the lives of our donors free of clutter.
- The adventure of shopping at a thrift store being enjoyed by everyone.
- Active volunteers contributing to their communities and a world-changing cause with increased sense of purpose.
- Investors realizing real business results with an investment they can feel good about.
- Literacy on the rise and with it the most amazing story — the story of God’s Love for mankind — changing hearts around the world.
