Blessed guy with a big heart.

Dear editor,

I recently read your story, Breaking bannock on city streets (December 2004) that tells of the ministry of Rev. Andrew Wesley. His is a wonderful story of a missionary love giving witness to Jesus among peoples who are not yet believers of the Christian faith and in the power of the Gospel.

I can relate to his work. As a priest of the Philippine Independent Church, I was once assigned to a slum area in Manila where I ministered to people who felt that the church has nothing to do with them. I lived with marginalized people whose poverty separated them not only from the church but also from civil society.

Mr. Wesley is a blessed guy with a big heart for those people living outside the social norm. I pray for his ministry that he may continue to find joy in his work and continue to see the face of Christ in the faces of the aboriginal people in the streets of Toronto.
