(The York Dispatch, 24 August) Eighty-year-old Sue Doering spent a year living in fear of being thrown in prison for having three outstanding parking-ticket warrants.

"I just ignored them. I knew I should've dealt with them sooner, but I was scared," the York City resident said. "It's been very stressful."

Siloam Mission celebrates 30 years

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

Siloam Mission is a Nazarene compassionate ministry center in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

(Winnipeg Sun, 24 August) Dennis and Mardie Wilson weren’t quite sure what they were getting themselves into when they began volunteering at Siloam Mission 10 years ago.


Siloam started in 1987 when Suk Woon Lee, a former inmate and member of the Korean Nazarene organization, established the first building at 695 Main Street. On Thursday, the organization celebrated its 30th birthday with a block party, including a pork lunch courtesy of Manitoba Pork.

The husband and wife duo volunteer once a week and are part of some 8,000 volunteers who do so every year.

“It’s the best thing we do all week,” Mardie said.

But when an opportunity came about to lead NBA India came about, Flemming said he and his family could not turn the offer down.
