Catherine MacKeil
Women’s Inter Church Council of Canada began in 1918 and local events grew exponentially, and women of Canada and the United States co-developed and distributed materials abroad to their partners for the fledgling Day of Prayer in 1926. Today, the World Day of Prayer is thriving. In 2016, it was celebrated by over 1,048,000 people in 98 countries, with the writing countries’ content translated into 95 languages. It is still very active in Canada, where around 1250 World Day of Prayer services were hosted in 2017. Offerings enable WICC to continue its successful grassroots grant program. WICC has not stopped there, however. It has been the Canadian partner of the Fellowship of the Least Coin (FLC) since the 1970s. FLC is a prayer movement focused on social justice and solidarity. WICC has also been active in advocacy and social justice education, including conferences focused on human trafficking and magazines exploring today’s faith and justice issues. The WICC Council continues to meet and now represents 10 Christian denominations. On Sun March 1st, a Women’s Day of Prayer will be happening. http://wicc.org

Kristi LaPlante
Kristi is a recovering IV drug user who grew up in a home where drinking, drug use and violence was their normal. Moving around a lot, living with grandparents and her aunt and uncle, provided little of the stability and guidance a young girl needs to get a good start in life. While there were many challenges in Kristi’s life, she managed to thrive and excel as a student and used school as an escape from the everyday realities she dealt with; but, the escape of school was soon replaced by a interest in boys. At the tender age of just 15, Kristi gave birth to her first child who was soon given to her mother. Following this, Kristi had her first encounter with cocaine, and from here her life quickly spiralled out of control. Kristi tells a painful story which includes drug use, abusive relationships, prostitution, the death of multiple family members, including her 20-year-old son, and suicide attempts. Thankfully, Kristi encountered God’s grace and love, and today she shares how she is now working at VisionQuest where she is actively involved in helping other women overcome their addictions by trauma informed practice. Kristi looks forward to celebrating two years of sobriety this coming January 1, 2020.

He said, "Brody that is for you to find out." That comment started him on a spiritual journey of searching who God was. Brody said, "The best decision I ever made was to turn from my sin and put my faith in Jesus Christ. Today because of Jesus his life & focus has been completely turned around.

Ruth Graham
When we live with unresolved anger or hurt, the result is nearly always bitterness, broken relationships, and unhealthy behaviors. Unforgiveness not only sabotages our interactions with those around us, it impedes our own spiritual growth and inner peace. And it can happen to anyone. In her most vulnerable writing yet, Ruth Graham reveals how a visit to Angola Prison inspired her to release the unforgiveness lurking in her own heart—toward others, herself, and even her heavenly Father and her earthly father, evangelist Billy Graham. In this encouraging book, she weaves her own personal experiences with biblical examples to explore what holds us back from forgiving others and ourselves—and what we gain when we finally discover the power to forgive. Along the way, she guides us into our own deeply personal experiences of forgiveness that will penetrate our protective walls and unleash true transformation in our lives. http://ruthgraham.com
