  • The Wellington Advertiser - Bibles for Missions holds ground breaking for Fergus thrift store location
    in its endeavours She said that type of work will make a difference in a person s life I know you re going to be very busy and that it will take a lot of volunteers to keep it up and running she said She thanked the group for investing in the community and providing a service to so many who need it Oostdyk explained the foundation was established in Chilliwack British Columbia in 1989 to support the work of The Bible League of Canada During the 22 years since that time both organizations have grown and changed We currently operate 40 thrift stores across Canada We still have many projects on the go Fergus is just one We are growing and growing rapidly In its first year the foundation sent 38 000 to the Bible league and last year the annual contribution had increased to over 5 6 million Oostdyk said Each store is operated under the guidance of a local board of directors he added He noted Sikkema is part of that local group We count on the willing work of numerous volunteers That is the basis of the operation of the stores Without them our stores wouldn t be able to function Through the sale of good quality donated merchandise funds are raised to help the Bible league accomplish its ministerial objectives around the world Each store provides an opportunity to be a blessing in the local community in a number of ways he said He said that those who shop in the stores are able to purchase good quality items at a reasonable and affordable cost but members of the community who donate those goods can be assured they are being used effectively in another person s life and that they are not filling up local landfill sites Oostdyk added volunteers can see the generosity of local communities and how the sale of the items can have a positive impact on the lives of others It is also a chance to work with like minded volunteers and see how their effort is making a difference both here and around the world I have heard it said on many occasions what an amazing thing God is doing through our stores Who knows how God is turning the donation of a T shirt to one of our stores into a Bible placed into the hands of someone in the world and a chance for them to accept Jesus into their heart Oostdyk said We are so thankful for the work that is done in each of our stores and also for the work already done here in Fergus as preparations are made to start the construction of a brand new building He added As in so many other communities we hope that this store will be able to enhance any existing thrift store operations by working together with them perhaps handling each other s surplus items or as an avenue to handle donations that cannot be handled for
