Psalm 26:8 日本人学生は、あなたのおもてなしを必要とする JAPANESE STUDENTS NEED YOUR HOSPITALITY! From November 22 to December 4, 2014 a group of 54 students from Japan is going to visit Nanaimo Christian School. While they have a full program with schooling and sightseeing already arranged, they still need a bed to sleep in and a family to welcome them to Canada. It’s a chance for your family to get to know a different culture while sharing your faith. They are from Hatsushiba High School, just south of Kyoto. NCS hosted students from this school last year and it was a wonderful experience for students and host families alike. We will accommodate the needs of your family as to gender and age of the student and there will be a reimbursement for your costs of $28.00/day. Please consider opening your home and host a Japanese student. Contact [email protected], or (250-754-4512) and leave a message for Christina James – Homestay Coordinator / NCS International Department. ありがとう (Arigatō! Thank you!)

FELLOWSHIP CAFÉ PRESCHOOL (Ages 2 to 5) KIDZ TIME (Grades 1-6) 12:15-12:45 pm FELLOWSHIP CAFÉ 12:30 pm NEWCOMER’S LUNCHEON Check out www.fbcnanaimo.ca Kay and her second husband, Jack, were serving as missionaries in Mexico in the late 1960s when medical problems forced them to leave the mission field. They returned to their home base in Chattanooga, Tennessee, confident that the Lord had further plans for them. Jack became the station manager of a local Christian radio station, and Kay taught the Bible to teens in their living room. The number of teens attending Kay’s Bible study group steadily grew, and a 32-acre farm was purchased to accommodate the expanding ministry, which was named Reach Out Ranch. Some of the book titles Kay has authored are, Lord, Teach Me To Pray; Lord, Heal My Hurts Lord, I Want to Know You, Search My Heart Oh God and many more. Kay and Jack have dedicated four decades to equip Christians with the tools necessary to mine the Scriptures on their own. Come in and browse our selection of excellent books by Kay Arthur.
