FIRST NATIONS
ADVENTIST TRAINING

Level 2 FNAT Weekend




We had the wonderful opportunity to attend Level 2 of the FNAT, out in Hope this last month.

I have been waiting my whole life for something like this to be offered, not only to the First Nations but to the constituents. The opportunity for growth and reconciliation is there, and I was blessed to be part of this little miracle.

As an Indigenous woman, it was nice to be able to see how God has been with us always, even before Colonialization.  We looked at the similarities between my Traditional believes and the Bible and it was amazing to find that what I practise traditionally is in there, the 7 Grandfathers and what is know as the Fruits of the Spirit are the same.  



We had 17 participants most of which were not Indigenous, but who are Indigenous Allies.  We grew together as children of Creator and walked away with not only a much great understanding of First Nations culture but with information and practical skills for reaching out to our First Nations.

Next session will be in the fall and your participation is required, as it is our Great Commission, that we may hasten His return.
