Updates from White Cross Canada Shipping Centre – July 2020
Container shipment and box delivery during the social distancing time
Due to the COVID-19 situation in Alberta, White Cross Canada has decided to postpone the next loading to October 2020. However, the need is now greater in Cameroon due to COVID-19. We would like to do what we can. If you are able to continue the ministry at your group (or at home!) without risking your health, please continue the ministry!
At the Centre, a few volunteers at a time are working on accepting the boxes, sorting them, and repacking them to follow the health guidelines. Since the process takes longer than usual, we would appreciate if you could send your boxes or items before fall. Please contact us for further instructions (WhiteCross@Taylor-edu.ca or 780-431-5200 ext. 201.). If you are coming to the Centre for a delivery, please arrange the date and time with Bert Harsch (Cell: 780-660-5955). Remember: if you know anyone who is coming to Edmonton, you could also have them drop off the boxes, instead of using courier services.
Thank you for your contribution to the White Cross Centenary fund!
About this time last year, we sent out invitation letters to celebrate White Cross’ 100th anniversary by establishing a centenary fund to offset the containers shipping cost. With many responses to the invitation, we have received $6785.00 in total. Thank you for your prayer, financial contribution, and spreading the word about this. As we continue to send containers, please pray for wisdom to steward the resource God trusted us with through you.
Our website is now regularly updated
During Dr. Hammer’s leave, regular updates sent in emails were suspended. However, the ministry continues, and we would like to share what God is doing through the things that we are participating in. The website’s news section is now updated once in 1-2 months. We will start sending those short updates in emails as well. Please visit our website from Taylor’s website > About Taylor> White Cross News. If you bookmarked our website before January 2019, you might need to do so again due to our website’s address change.
As we continue to participate in God’s mission together, may God bless you and fill you with joy of giving in many ways.
In His Service,
On behalf of
Director - White Cross Canada
