    Twenty-five years ago I started helping children with special needs in a Ukrainian orphanage that people called, "The place that God forgot". Sooooo, today I'm the crazy-happy guy watching one of those amazing kids, Anton (who is a Paralympic medal winner!!!) getting his inspiring story filmed for German TV!



    Caring for the orphans and the widows .. They are not just found in the orphanages and seniors homes .. those are the easy ones. Many are living on the streets, in the dumps and on the heat pipes around the city .. for as little as $5 you can make a difference 



    Mark and his wife, Val, have pastored for 38 years in PAOC churches in Western Ontario: Petrolia, Huntsville, Barrie and at Parkwood in Windsor for almost 23 years. Mark has recently been appointed as the Regional Director for Latin America and Caribbean. Mark and Val have three children and seven grandchildren. Mark is also a Leafs fan. :)



    Still my favourite quote - Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes. 

    David Platt

    have seen the trauma of children being separated from their parents. Even in cases of the worst kind of abuse, the child suffers that loss. When they are taken into a kind and loving environment it lessens the pain but even then the child hurts in ways that we cannot fathom. Sometimes it is done for the good of the child and even though they cannot understand it, eventually they get it. But the pain is still there. Always will be. You only need to look into those little eyes one time and you will understand. We should always think of what is best for the child in every situation. 



    Possibilities International exists to help fulfill the simple dreams of the hurting, helpless and hopeless by raising up a nation of everyday philanthropists. We are a Canadian Registered Charity (#84378 4364 RR0001) founded by Executive Director, Sam Welten, in 2005. We are based in Petrolia, Ontario

    We believe that everyone can be a philanthropist and that you don't have to be a millionaire to make a difference.
    We are working to raise up a nation of "Everyday Philanthropists"



    ERDO is a founding member of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB).  By ownership of CFGB, 30 Canadian church denominations and church-based agencies work collaboratively to pool resources, bringing a Christian response to hunger.  Through our membership, donations to food relief and food security have the potential to be multiplied by matching funds available from the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada (GAC).



    On behalf of the food bank we would like to thank ALL who have been donating to the food bank. Our shelves are beginning to be replenished. We are still in need of the many items previously listed and continue to ask for your support.


    A Community Christmas hamper program serving Lambton County (Excluding Sarnia) We serve over 400 families.


    The Gospel is advancing worldwide, and Jesus is changing hearts and lives. We are eternally grateful for the countless people who give sacrificially to this Association so the Word of God may be accessible in every tribe, tongue, and nation. Thank you.
