Raymond Mowla
After thirty long years of searching for the truth about God, Raymond Mowla, a former Muslim, was confronted with a supernatural experience with the Holy Spirit in November of 2012 that left him completely undone and willing to embrace God in the face of Jesus Christ. Learning to navigate this new life in Christ, Raymond now shares his journey five years after the cross, a path that has brought challenges and changes to his religious identity, his social identity, and his ideas about ministry. Raymond's story reminds us that there's still a God who is very much alive and active in the business of salvation and whose Word still goes forth with the power to transform hearts, even today. Raymond shares his story in the new book "Servants of Light". http://prisonfellowship.ca

David Shelley
Recent statistics show that over 100,000 children in Ukraine are orphaned or abandoned to state care. But the numbers don’t tell the real story; the reality for many of these kids living in orphanages can be bleak. Today, we follow an innovative outreach funded by partners of Crossroads Relief & Development into the state-run orphanages of this struggling nation. You will be encouraged to see how, when students from a local seminary spend their Saturdays pouring love into their lives, the orphans come alive. It’s a poignant and transformative ministry funded by Crossroads Relief & Development for the last 6 years, helping both orphans and students move forward into their future. http://crossroads.ca/cares/

Portage Art Group
Portage is a group of Christian professional artists and art educators from different parts of Ontario. They are focused on the therapeutic side of artmaking, seen from a Christian perspective, working specifically on artistic languages in visual art being an extension of the person of the artist, the artists’ emotional, spiritual, and physical worlds. They seek to help creatives faithfully negotiate transitions in life and so honour Christ, the original Artist, and our Redeemer through these languages, as well as how the process of art can be therapeutic for those experiencing mental health problems. http://portagesemaphore.ca

Jon Seidl
in the aftermath of the pandemic, even those who have never struggled with mental health have found themselves reeling, looking for answers they don't know how to find. For Christians, especially those who've despaired of help from a church that has too often stigmatized poor mental health as a lack of faith, the way forward can be particularly difficult to see. Jonathon Seidl aims to fix that. Having fought his own way through crippling anxiety, life-altering OCD, and suicidal thoughts, he knows the value of concrete advice grounded in strong biblical truth. Instead of the trite or unsympathetic counsel that's too often given, Finding Rest is practical, personal, and productive. Full of compelling stories, humor from a guide who's still on his journey, and scriptural truths, this book offers real hope and help. It also provides a lifeline for friends and family who long for ways to help relieve the suffering of their loved ones. And it calls to account the church for its historical treatment of mental health and lays out thoughtful, needed paths for the body of Christ to become a refuge of hope for the anxious. https://jonseidl.com/
