You know that your hairbrush was made in China - 90% of the stuff in your house came from beyond our borders on a ship - but how did it actually get to be in your hand when it came from so far away.  The BBC just published a great article about just that.  It's titled:"The Invisible Network that Keeps the World Running" by Tim Maughan - you can read it  here.

 M2S has had the privilege of working with the International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF) for many years.  From this great organization comes the ITF Seafarers Trust; an organization that seeks to support initiatives that directly help seafarers.  
M2S drives daily to visit, pick up and drop off seafarers from the different ships that come into the Port of Montreal.  All this driving does a number on our vans, of which we have two.  
Thankfully, the ITF Seafarers Trust saw fit to award us a grant of $20,000 so that we would be able to replace one of those vans! 
We are so very thankful to the the Seafarers Trust and to God for providing this van to the ministry.  We trust that it will be a great help in reaching out to the seafarers we are so privileged to serve.

The Ministry to Seafarers has successfully moved into its new home.  Due to the complete renovation of our previous centre we were relocated by the port to this building.  Thankfully it is not only close to the old one but is a beautiful building - even if it is much smaller.  We are thankful that we can still serve the seafarers despite the construction activity.  
‚ÄčNew address: 739 rue de la Commune Ouest, Montreal QC H3C 0M6 (not postal - only physical location)

We are so very grateful to have a wonderful new edition to our team. While Michelle DePooter-Francis is on maternity leave, Jacob Boer - who goes by Jake - has stepped in for 8 months on a part-time basis.  Jake is the pastor of Montreal CRC.  Montreal CRC has graciously loaned him to us while they cover some of his regular roles within their church.  Still preaching on Sunday he now spends part of his week reaching out to the seafarers in the Port of Montreal as chaplain for the Ministry.  Already in the past few weeks he has brought encouragement and insight to the team and to those we serve.  Please keep us and Jake in your prayers as we continue to do our best to meet the needs and of the seafarers and always to bring glory to our Father God!  Welcome Jake!  (You can find out more about Jake's first impressions of M2S in our upcoming newsletter)

We rejoice with Michelle DePooter-Francis and her husband Don with the safe arrival of their twin girls Asha and Kiran.  Born December 12th both girls, although small at birth, are doing great!  They increased the child count of the DePooter-Francis family by 100%!  Older brother Roshan and older sister Micaela are thrilled to have new conspirators! Michelle will be on maternity leave for the next 8 months and although she will be missed here at The Ministry to Seafarers we are sure she will have little time to miss us as she and Don juggle 4 children in that wonderful chaos called home.  Praise God for healthy children and a healthy mom!
