Thank you for your participation at Sweetie’s Farewell Party on Saturday August 13th! It was well-attended and we raised about $400 in total. About half of the proceed has been donated to the 105 Gibson Ministry and the rest to guide dog school.
Many of us learned tips and tricks about interacting with guide dogs and their owners. We also had lots of snacks and took pictures with Sweetie!

JBVC has 1 VIP baptized at TCCC in Easter Sunday 2015 and 1 family (VIP and her husband) baptized in MCAC this Christmas!
We began the weekly devotional and prayer session for VIP and volunteer. Scripture are being used to support each thanksgiving and struggle.
JBVC partnership with Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) to run the Braille lessons for VIP. Some VIP in the group is learning Braille for the first time, other are redoing the lessons after giving up for a long time. The skill has allowed VIP to mark their personal items at home or reading labels in the Café.
We also work with a Tai-Chi instructor to offer weekly lesson to VIP. It has become one of the purposes to encourage VIP to step out of their house.
The vocational training program has accepted 4 additional VIP to the Café ministry. Currently we have 7 VIPs are receiving training at the Café in rotating basis. We provided over 5796 training hours in 2015.
The Café ministry is able to offer four part-time positions to VIP. This is their first employment after loosing their eyes sight.
