After 9 months we are pleased and thankful for all God has been doing in our home and in the lives of our guests! We have now completed our first Toronto Summer as a home, and what a hot summer it was! Even our residents from the Middle East and Africa remarked at Toronto’s heat and humidity.

Matthew House Camp

This August Silas Hill residents, former residents, and volunteers were so happy to join Matthew House at their annual retreat to Muskoka.  It was a tremendous weekend filled with sunshine, canoeing, praise, prayer, dance, learning about Canadian nature, and getting to know people from around the world.

Silas Hill is so thankful for the many ways Matthew House has supported us this year, and we are already looking forward to next year’s retreat!
