Celebrating the Nicolsons
On July 22, a celebration of the Nicolsons’ service with MC Canada Witness in Burkina Faso will take place during the Sunday morning worship at Holyrood Mennonite Church in Edmonton.Service begins at 10:30. Potluck lunch to follow. All are welcome!

Twenty years ago, Lillian (Haas) Nicolson (Bluesky Mennonite Church) was invited to Burkina Faso to minister in the work of literacy which then grew into Bible translation. Alongside literacy and Bible translation, she has also been involved in church planting within the community. Norm (North Peace Mennonite Brethren) has ministered in Burkina Faso since 2007. He taught and assisted people to develop trade skills that enabled them to better meet the needs of their families, congregations and communities. He also audio-recorded biblical and other teaching materials to share the gospel with those who have limited literacy abilities. Norm, Lillian and their children, Kenneth and Nadine, returned to Canada at the end of May.
