NIAGARA MISSION

Community Mission work in the Niagara Region

Niagara College Focus:

Please pray for our small team of volunteers which offers “English Circles” for international students at Niagara College who want to improve their English skills. We usually meet twice a week at the Rice Road Community Church (305 Rice Road) which is ideally located across from the college. There are approx. 4,000 international students on the two campuses (Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake) at Niagara College. This is about 45% of the total student body of 9,000 students. The classes have been temporarily cancelled due to the present coronavirus so contact Rob Weatherby at rob.weatherby@om.org for more details or if you want to attend to learn or help in the future.

Our purpose is to help meet a felt need (language improvement) but also to provide social, emotional and spiritual support for these students who are often lonely, far from home and family, and sometimes struggling with a new language and culture. As we share our lives we them, we are also sharing God’s love and pointing them to Him.
