God’s Saving Miracle!
UGM’s Staff, our brother in the Lord, Dennis Williams, has a very moving testimony as he shares how God literally saved his life after a brutal attack. This is an amazing story of recovery and forgiveness! Click to read his story.
Please pray for continued healing on Dennis’s body, and for his family to see how God has transformed his life and to also accept Jesus as their Savior.
Several weeks after a brutal knife and hatchet attack on his body, our brother Dennis attended our Monday morning chapel to give glory to his Saviour. His story will be shared on CHVN 95.1FM tomorrow, early morning and will also be on their website, www.chvnradio.com.
“I still have Jesus” was, and is, the story of this man’s life. We know you will be moved by what Dennis has to share. Please try and listen in, or read the story online tomorrow.
JESUS IS AMAZING!!
Restoring our Christian heritage. St Patrick.
A cursory inquiry of people today of the life of St Patrick and what this day to honour his memory is about, will seldom if ever, reveal a knowledge of who this 5th century man of God was.
An intentional search of the internet will reveal a powerful and illuminating prayer. “Saint Patrick’s “Breastplate” Prayer.
The search will reveal that the man has a history to the origin of the music “Slane” and the much loved hymn, “Be Thou My Vision”. We will discover how St. Patrick stood for Jesus with a huge bonfire as a beacon tribute to the Light of the World when the authorities of his day, wanted a contrary ‘tribute’ of no light, no fire for a day, to honour some mystical redundant god. Darkness.
Then there is the Hymn of St. Patrick. This man who brought Christianity to Ireland. “Christ with, in, behind, before, beside me; to win, to comfort ,to restore, beneath, above, in quiet, in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.”
What has this to do with UGM? Simply sit in a prayer meeting with 5 transforming, redeemed, saved and broken men who KNOW THE TRUTH OF CHRIST, as poignant and as rich, and alive as it was when St Patrick walked the Irish ways, sharing Jesus. We stand with those who are sold out to Jesus Christ of Him who we call Saviour and Lord.
Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Walk of Light… Reminder for Monday, Feb 20
Please come join us…!
Our walk is purposed to focus on prayer. Prayer is our weapon against an increasingly demented and wicked world.
“Prayer means we can come in contact with an Almighty Christ and expect Almighty results to happen along the lines He laid down. The very powers of darkness are paralyzed by prayer.” Oswald Chambers
As I write, please pray for one of our amazing interns, Dennis. He nearly lost his life last week from a savage 3 men knife attack. Suffice to say, Jesus saved Dennis’s life, but there is a long road to recovery ahead.

Family Support Group
Experiencing the struggles of having a loved one deep in addiction can feel hopeless, and lonely and we want to help. UGM will be running a Family Support Group for those who have loved ones who are struggling with addiction. This group will run out of the UGM Charis Centre one day a week and will be a safe space to share your frustrations, concerns and fears while getting support from others who may be walking in your shoes.
Do you ever wonder if you are enabling your loved one or giving them though love? Do you sometimes feel like you want their safety and recovery more than they do? Do you spend sleepless nights wondering if they’re ok? If these questions resonate with you, we would love to hear from you.
We are at the beginning stages of planning and would like to know if you are interested, and which day works best (we will get a general consensus).
Please contact Loriann Tulk, Charis Centre manager, at 204-415-3934 ext 507, or Loriann.email@example.com.
