Newfoundland Bridges 101 T hree years ago, Randy Noseworthy, of the St. John’s Seventh-day Adventist Church, attended a workshop based on a book by Ruthie Jacobsen. The workshop was entitled “Bridges 101.” Randy came back from that workshop determined to build bridges within his community. And build bridges he did. He set up a committee and went to work, showing God’s love in a practical way. When asked what appealed to him about the program, Randy replied, “If you don’t want to witness, don’t know what to say, don’t like talking to people, don’t have much time, don’t have any money . . . then this is the program for you.” Randy and his team go about the community wherever the spirit leads them: police stations, fire stations, university campus, bus stations, government offices, nursing homes, and radio stations. These are just a few of the places that Randy and his team have shown up, surprising people with a bag of fruit, a health magazine, and a card that reads, “From your friends at the St. John’s Seventh-day Adventist Church” on one side, and “Showing God’s Love in a Practical Way” on the other. Randy Noseworthy “Showing God’s Love in a Practical Way.” They have done everything from climbing on a bus to give fruit to the passengers, to dropping off a bag of fruit and a card to the Premier of the province. They have set up on a busy walking trail, on a hot day, to serve cold water and watermelon. “We have had some won- derful responses from people and some great conversations,” says Randy. “It’s a > > SDACC REVOLVING FUND REPORT: great way to meet people.” If you find yourself in St. John’s, keep your eyes open for Randy and his team. You could spot them anywhere showing God’s love in a practical way. n —Gail Dempsey, communications director, S t .
