York Housing and Supportive Services (Belinda’s Place/Sutton Youth Services/Durham Housing Retention Services), Sutton, Ont.
Praise God for youth who attend weekly “faith talks” with our youth chaplain. Praise God for the young man at Sutton Youth Services who stopped a drunk lady who drove into a pole near the centre from getting back on the road by taking her keys, not once but twice, as she had a second set of keys in her purse. He was commended by the police department and is now considering going into a career in emergency services. Praise God for the women who meet weekly for mental health support, lunch, Bible study and prayer, and that they continue to grow closer to him.
Pray for all youth at Sutton Youth Services to find their way with schooling, careers and family reunification. Pray for all the people in second-stage housing in Durham that they will stabilize and stay in housing. Pray for the September women’s retreat and the salvation of those who attend. Pray for clients from emergency shelter, transitional housing, second-stage housing and drop in to be involved in spiritual care and come to experience the love of God.
Pray for our municipal regions, their leaders and staff that they will continue to support our work in York and Durham, not just financially but also our mission as changed lives is our goal.
