Dear Praying Friends!
Thanks again for your ongoing prayers and involvement in this way. God’s grace continues to amaze us and draw us to Himself!

What’s Been Happening?
- Travel – back to Manitoba… I leave for Winnipeg early tomorrow morning, and have my first session of Best Practices in Church Missions with a church in Winnipeg. I’m almost prepared! This time in Manitoba also affords me the opportunity to interact with church leaders at a Steinbach Bible College's Leadership Conference 2013. I'll be setting up a display there, and attending the sessions too! The balance of my time in Manitoba allows me to interact with potential WTC workers. Lastly, I'm here at the right time to celebrate my dad's 85th birthday! This was SUCH a valuable trip! God's hand was so clearly on my interactions with others. I rejoiced at some advances, recognized some areas of needed development, and celebrated people's journeys with them. What a privilege!
- Internships – Paul Muzzin is excited that we have 2 interns accepted to serve in France this summer. Please pray for Caroline (Kitchener) and Jermaine (Toronto) as they begin to make preparations for this learning, serving, and growing time! This is an ongoing request. Please continue to pray as these two individuals works towards raising their funds at this point.
- University stuff… Megan had her info night with University of Ottawa yesterday. So far she’s been accepted to U of Ottawa, U of Guelph, and U of Waterloo. Still waiting on the response from U of Toronto, and then it’s decision time! I'm pleased to see her working through this process, and look forward to seeing what God has in store for her! Again, ongoing prayer is requested...
- The most recent edition of The Mustard Seed is available ONLINE. Take time to read this if you have not yet!
- Over the next week, our family will be enjoying a week of vacation. This is Megan’s last official High School March break! We are thankful to spend this time together as a family (and thankful for rewards points that afford us this vacation!!!)
- The following week is already booked with a number of activities – interaction with individuals interested in World Team, session II on “Best Practices for Church Missions,” interaction with College students, and involvement in training for the ministry to Mexican migrant workers… so, yeah, a full week coming off vacation!
Thanks again for your prayers! I am CONVINCED that much of the fruit of this ministry is due to God’s answer to prayer!
