†     Joel and Shula Brown live in the north end of Winnipeg, Canada. The area where the live is called the North End. It’s not a good area, one that has its fair share of gangs and the like. They live there because their ministry is to mostly to young men, most of whom are Native Americans. For the past 6 years they’ve held a weekly Bible study and fellowship time on Sundays from noon to 5pm. A meal is shared, they hang out, and then study the Bible. Usually there are 10 to 12 young men who come out. Shula also connects with a couple of married women and serves as a mentor for them.

    Leidy’s Church first met Shula when she was Shula Mulenga, a young African woman who felt called to go to Canada to work with indigenous peoples. Guess what? The Lord led her to Pikangikum! Eventually she met Joel who lived and ministered in the North End of Winnipeg. They got married, so she moved to Winnipeg. Now they have two children, Eliani who is 4 and Amari who is 2. Joel is a carpenter’s apprentice and hopes to get his journeyman’s license in 2 years. At that time, they would become self- supporting. Their ministry has brought faith and stability to lives that were in rough seas, as it were. We pray continued success for their ministry.

    By the way, you can see Joel and Shula – and all our missionaries – on the back wall of the narthex. Take time to put some names and faces together.
