A sawmill explosion in Prince George, B.C., Apr. 23 killed at least two people and seriously injured 8 others. None of the casualties were members of the Westwood MB Church family, but the congregation got involved right away.
Amy Unruh was a full-time university student and part-time worker at The Meeting Place church in Winnipeg when she received the diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes in 2006. “My diagnosis affected my life in every way – emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally,” she says. But with the help of mutual aid funding and the support of family and friends, Unruh has been able to control her health with an insulin pump.
