Missions at St. David's Anglican Church

 

St. David’s goal for missions is that all members take ownership of their commitment to the Great Commission by recognizing and utilizing their gifts to serve, with Christ’s love, in the community and the world.

 

We encourage parishioners to experience missions first hand and many have responded to this call. Teams have visited Guatemala, Mexico, Haiti, South Africa, Uganda, Honduras, Fiji and Brazil.
 
“The primary TASK of the church is world mission”
             ( Matt. 28: 18 - 20;  Luke 24: 46 - 47;  Acts 1: 8 )
 
 

Refugee Sponsorship at St. David’s

 
At St. David’s we have been privileged to sponsor two Iraqi families as refugees to Canada over the past six years. In 2015 we welcomed Amenah and two of her sons to Vancouver and we have formed a strong friendship with the family as they adapted to life in their new country. They have all become proud Canadian citizens recently.
 
In July of 2020, right in the middle of the Covid 19 pandemic we were thrilled to welcome Hamid and Nahid and their children Dina and Ali to Canada after a three year struggle to get them accepted as refugees. The Covid restrictions meant a delay of several months after they had been approved to come to Canada so it was with a big sigh of relief that we greeted them at YVR on July 29. We have become close friends with this wonderful family as they become settled in their new home in Vancouver.
 
Our involvement with sponsoring refugee families goes back to the early 1980’s when we welcomed our first sponsored family from El Salvador. It has been a privilege to be able to offer love and support to all of these families in this vital ministry.

 

Latin American Scholarship Fund

 
After many years of missions ministry to Mexico and other Latin American countries St. David’s was honored to be asked to partner with a generous parishioner in 2012 to establish a scholarship fund to assist students in Latin American countries to pursue higher education.

The initial donation of $100,000 has been invested in a trust fund at the Diocese of New Westminster and the growth from this fund is distributed annually to suitable recipients. To maximize the efficiency of these funds St. David’s chose Impact Ministries as our partner in the field. Impact Ministries is a Kamloops based mission organization who have had great success building and operating schools in Guatemala and several parishioners from St. David’s have taken part in mission trips to Tactic, the small town where the ministry is based in Guatemala.

The money sent to Guatemala supports students wishing to pursue post secondary education in fields such as medicine, nursing, agriculture, science, ministry and teaching and has allowed many young Guatemalans to realize their dream of higher education.
