10th JOSIAH -

EXCITING REPORT!

.

MYCanada (MYC) would like to extend a HUGE heart-felt thank you to every single one of you that partnered with us for the 10th Josiah delegation last week! The impact in our lives and in those we encountered was incredible. We would not have been able to do it without your prayers and financial support. THANK YOU!

.

Remembering back to 2005, when the first team of delegates went across the nation to meet with 36 MPs, we would've never imagined that after countless years of sacrifice and showing up, we would have the same opportunity again this year, but on a larger scale!

.

23 young people from across the nation met with over 90 Parliamentarians - this is amazing favour & very unusual for groups visiting the Hill. The team, led by JoJo Smith and Sarah Johnson, did an excellent job of representing Christ to our leaders & speaking to the heart of issues. They focused on the ongoing abortion de- bate (we are gaining amazing ground here), freedom of speech, human trafficking and suicide. Several of our Parliamentarians took notes as the team spoke to them, asked for more information & told the team how thankful they were for the team's input! Lives were impacted. Our leaders were honoured. A strong voice was heard. God was glorified. We will not stop until Canada is glorifying God on these and other issues.

Aside from MP secretaries chasing us down on the first day to book a meeting, other highlights included the many MPs that the team got to pray for (some of which were brought to tears), a Senator who spoke about MYC during the Senate speeches exhorting all Senators to make sure they meet with us next year when we are back, and key MPs that shared with us about plans they have to table some amazing legislation. They went on to look the team in the eyes and say, “We need YOUR help. Will you work with us on this?” (Um, YES!! We can't leak all the news yet but will say this much, “IT IS EXCITING!” and stay tuned on our MYC e-mails & site). Canada is getting better and better every day!

REMARKABLE MOMENTS:

.

When MP Joy Smith said, 'I wondered if you (MYC) would waiver as a group on the Hill, and you didn't. These young people are the real deal and they are not going anywhere."
.
"I LOVED the fact that I met leader after leader who legitimately loves God, desires to see Canada reflect Truth and seeks our Maker for wisdom, strategy and direction."
.
When MP Garry Breitkreuz received the Hero Award at the reception. He was so taken back by it!
.
When we presented the gifts to the MPs! The luggage tags were a hit; a friendly reminder to our MPs to leave our nation better than we found it!
