Yes, we at Pure Witness are stuck at home, and we can’t get out into the 25 more schools across Western Canada where we had planned to put on school retreats this year or put on our last YEP or run our local Anchor and Reach programs.  But, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!

With so many people now turning to look for online support in their faith, we realize that we have an opportunity to reach out to many more people than we have ever reached before.

We’re super excited to dedicate time like we’ve never had in the past to develop this aspect of our ministry: free, dynamic video resources for the new evangelization.  So, yes, we are very busy these days … planning, building and creating a new online presence for Pure Witness to invite youth and families to set Christ at the heart of their lives.

And while Matthew Marcoux is developing the video resources, Christine Pashula is busy working toward an updated website that will meet the needs of a web resource-based ministry.  We’re excited to be working together as a team to make many new resources available for you to share with family and friends in the near future.

Please keep this work of evangelization in your prayers, and know that we remember you and your families in our daily prayers and offerings!
