Please pray: 

That the many newcomers moving into Milton would receive a warm welcome by area churches and that would open the door to relationships with local Christians.

Milton Area Christian Churches Working Together is a network focused on welcoming newcomers. Pray that many would be reached through their efforts.

Many Muslims are settling into the busyness of Canadian life, community, jobs, raising children, trying to get ahead in life. Pray that in the midst of this busyness they would have opportunities to hear the gospel. 

Pray for openness, desire and enthusiasm in the churches of Milton to reach out to Muslims with love and care.

No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion.
