An extensive overseas missionary program is carried out through the

conducted under the registered Canadian charity NAC Foreign
Extension extends primarily to the continents of Africa and
Asia. Canadian missionaries travel to developing nations lending
expertise to local church building projects, bible distribution, local
minister training and development. Financial aid is provided to
support local charitable initiatives where the promotion of Christianity
benefits our members and their communities. NAC Foreign Extension
also directs financial assistance to local aid agencies responding to
catastrophic events or natural disasters.

Northern Sri Lanka has been hit with a severe draught this year. Normally, Northern Sri Lankans have adequate water for living and farming irrigation, but the last few years have not seen normal rains. Lives were already shattered here in this region due to heavy losses during the civil war. Now as they try to regain normalcy in day to day life, the shortage of water presents an enormous setback. Crops are failing and food supply is also short. The hope is that the next monsoon season will bring rains again to this region. Continuous rains would fill the wells with water and allow for irrigation for crops along with the required day to day supply of clean drinking water.
