Lt-Colonel Raphael Mason, territorial multicultural ministries secretary, dedicated nine new brass instruments at Toronto's Yorkwoods Community Church, located in the culturally and economically diverse Jane-and-Finch area of the city. “This is the beginning of a new development in this church and I am confident that souls will be won through the band's ministry,” said Lt-Colonel Mason.

Made possible through the generosity of a legacy donation, the instruments will enhance the corps' ministry to its community. “We can reach out to people, particularly the young ones, giving them opportunity to learn about music and God. Our music ministry will contribute to the moral and spiritual development of our community,” says Aux-Captain Alain Suamunu-Luasu, corps officer.
Church members expressed their enthusiasm for this development. “It's a step forward, particularly for our kids who love music and are ready to use the instruments to glorify the Lord,” says Joel Nyakuedi, from Kenya.
