Dear friends and supporters of Street Hope Peterborough:
It is a joy for me to write to you today to remind you how vital you are to this ministry. Quite honestly, this ministry would not continue without the tremendous support you bless us with through your prayers and financial gifts!
A lot has taken place in the ministry of Street Hope Peterborough in the past few months. Our outreach, within our two local halfway houses, is being richly blessed by Jesus as we seek to simply support individuals coming to our community from the prison system. One man we continue to support has a tremendous testimony of transformation in his personal life. Not only has he been able to find steady employment as a chef, but he is also using his skills to volunteer in the community in various ways. One of the most exciting transformations in this man’s life is the reconciliation he has established with his children in the past year after more than a decade of not having contact with them.
Another man we support at the halfway house was released from prison late last year. Two days after his release he found a full time position as a chef in a well established restaurant where God has been giving him favour with his employer in a wonderful way! This man as well gives back to the community by speaking at schools with young people about his offence and addictions.
We are very thankful to Jesus that we have had a wonderful season with our Movie and Christian Movie outreach every second Tuesday since September. It has been exciting to see our relationships grow with one another as we have been touched in special ways through our times of fellowship and through the messages from these God centred movies!
This summer we are planning once again to have outdoor outreaches in Victoria Park in downtown Peterborough. We have four of these events scheduled for the summer months with a free barbeque and live music and preaching in the park. This year we have a number of guest musicians planned for our park events along with an opportunity for people to respond to God’s love through prayer.
I want to thank you so much for your partnership that you offer in such a loving way towards this ministry that seeks to bring hope into the lives of people who are often very broken.

You are a great blessing!
Sincerely Yours in Jesus,
