A Message for the People of Alberta

To our supporters and the people of Alberta who have been affected by the recent flooding:

We have read the news and watched TV coverage of the recent flooding in Calgary and surrounding areas and we were brought up short after seeing devastating images of the aftermath. Many of us have families and friends in Alberta and have visited on many occasions so to see it in such a state was unbelievable.

We think deeply of all of you who have been affected profoundly by one of nature’s disasters and the heartbreak, pain and loss that come along with it. Our hearts go out to all of you. We are also touched by the bravery, collaboration, and patience of Albertans as they deal with the aftermath of the flood.

We pray for all of you as you work to clean up and rebuild your lives and communities. We wish you, your family, and your community continued hope, courage, safety, and well-being— that your spirits will remain positive as you strive to recover and rebuild your beautiful cities in the days and months ahead.

Grace and peace
From all of us at ICS
