The Family Life Centre is located in the heart of gangland Winnipeg in the midst of Satan’s stronghold. The confusion and darkness can be overwhelming. The neighbourhood is regulated by the sun. Once the sun goes down, children are brought indoors, the blinds are shut and the doors are locked.
The scientific community tells us that we need 4 basic elements to survive this world, water, air, food and light. What does the Bible tells us about our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ? I am the living water, I am the breath of life, I am the bread of life, and I am the light of the world. All the elements that we need to survive this world can be found in Jesus!
This is what we do at the Family Life Centre, we teach Jesus. The ladies coming to our programming may be thirsty for peace in their heart that surpasses all comprehension, and we will direct them to the well where they will never thirst again. The children come in droves looking to fill their little bellies. After physically feeding the children, they are taught to search for the food from the Holy Scriptures that will satisfy their soul.
I can’t help but think about the passage out of the Book of Ezekiel where it reads (Ezekiel 37:3-4) And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the Word of the Lord. This is our answer to all the individuals that come through the front doors of the Family Life Centre, “Hear the Word of the Lord”
