Medicine Hat, Alberta is situated along the Trans-Canada highway in southeastern Alberta. It is approximately 300 km east of Calgary and 145 km north of the Montana border. With a population of just over 60,000, it is the 6th largest city in Alberta. And it is known as the SUNNIEST CITY IN CANADA!
In early 2010 Oliver Shane Edwards, his wife Cheryl and their 6 children (all boys) moved to Medicine Hat from the Vancouver suburbs to begin laying a foundation for this new work. Oliver, a native Albertan had long desired to return to his home soil, and the prosepct of being able to do so while following God's plan for his life was the ultimate joy.
Bart and Elizabeth, along with their 3 children, will be joining the Edwards family in Medicine Hat in the early part of 2011. Once there, the two families will continue to pray, plan and prospect for the best way to launch the new minsitry; hopefully for the fall of 2011.
