Last Days....

It is hard to believe that the Marshall's are now into their final week here in St Albert. The movers have already been and gone, and all that is left is some final last minute things.

Be sure to come out to the Marshall's farewell dinner at the Church (on Friday June 27 @ 6:30pm) and to next Sunday's Worship Service (June 29 @ 11:am) where you will be able to say so long and farewell.

Monday morning Capt's Les & Tiffany will be heading off to their new appointment in Winnipeg MB, their son Adam will be heading off to Pine Lake Camp for the summer and their daughter Courtney will be staying behind to live in St Albert and will be working at Soul Sportz and then attending NAIT in the fall.

It's United Days!

It is hard to believe that pastor transition day is just around the corner (officers must be in place by July 4).
The belongings for our new Pastors Jason & Gaye King was picked up yesterday in Hanover ON to make its way to St Albert.
Captains Les & Tiffany will have their belongings picked up Wednesday morning to head to Winnipeg.

We are definitely experiencing the winds of change before our very eyes.

Fathers Day

Dont forget - this weekend is a very special weekend - IT'S FATHERS DAY! Kids make sure that you put some time aside to spend with DAD!

Please pray for Zimbabwe & South Africa!

The following is a letter from Major Lindsay Rowe, a Canadian serving in the Republic of South Africa:

Dear Family & Friends:

I'm sending this recent THQ bulletin to you regarding Zimbabwe. Please continue to remember us in your prayers as we continue to trust God for whatever the future holds for us.

We also solicit your prayers for refugees and foreign immigrants in South Africa. Recent outbreaks of violent attacks against foreigners in the townships surrounding Johannesburg and Cape Town have resulted in forty-five deaths and more than 30,000 displaced refugees being forced from their burning homes and brutally assaulted. We are very concerned about the future of these victims of xenophobia.

The Salvation Army is very busy providing food, clothing, accommodation and counselling. Many of our volunteers are themselves refugees and must be very careful. We are not targets of this xenophobia so are not personally at risk. It is a black on black phenomenon unfortunately and is the result of a combination of social issues that include but is not restricted to xenophobia, poverty, unemployment, and government mismanagement of the refugee problem.

Incoming refugees have little choice but to head to the informal settlements where they can erect a shack and live economically. Unfortunately the townships are already bulging with South Africans desperately trying to eke out an existence on a day to day basis. The influx of refugees is the proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back."

Please pray for us and our people as we minister to these dear people who came to South Africa to escape violence and poverty in their home land and are now headed back home bruised, bleeding, and broken in spirit. Pray that God will soften the hearts of those who are engineering the violence for their own benefit and pray that the general populace will come to their sense and refuse to be incited to join in the violence. Pray that they will recognize the image of God in these their brothers and sisters and stop the violence.

This Sunday will be a day of prayer for refugees and foreign immigrants in all churches in South Africa, please join us in prayer.

Today the Salvation Army hosted the annual golf classic at the Highlands Golf Club in Edmonton AB. This years proceeds have been designated to the construction of a new cabin at Pine Lake Camp. This year 144 Golfers took to the course and a great time was had by all. Great food, great prizes and great fellowship, a job well done by the Prairie Division PR team.
