Broken Walls was pleased to be asked to play in Montreal for National Aboriginal Day as well as lead worship at a Native Awareness Conference during the following two days.
On Aboriginal Day, they led worship and shared at the one-day conference hosted by the Anglican Diocese of Montreal which was designed to better equip clergy, staff, lay leaders and others interested in ministering to Aboriginal people in both the urban centres and rural areas under their jurisdiction.
After this event, many people came up to say that Broken Walls really encouraged them to make a difference. It was inspiring to see so many who have a heart to minister to First Nations people. Our friend, Lee and his wife, Leslie were wonderful hosts and did all that they could to help make the event go smoothly. One lady said: “Your music and stories were truly inspiring. I have never heard native music before and wish that I had a long time ago. I did purchase some of your cds but there is nothing compared to hearing you in person.”
The next two days were spent at the River’s Edge Church in Montreal at two-day Native Awareness conference with Terry LeBlanc and Adrian Jacobs of My People International. Daniel and Francine were wonderful hosts and it was nice to spend time with old friends. The conference was well attended and the response was so encouraging.
Bill and Kris had to fly home but Jonathan stayed to lead worship and share on the Sunday morning at St. Peter’s Anglican, Town of Mount Royal. They really enjoyed Jonathan’s message and you can hear what he shared by going to stpetersvmr.org/media and click on J. Maracle.
