“This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.” (Colossians 1.6 NLT)

Spain Team Update
Mike, Daniela and Will Riley arrived in Costa Rica last Friday. Daniela enrolled in the same language institute where Karen and I studied Spanish. Please pray for them as they are in temporary housing until their accommodations become available May 10. For the first few days they were without laundry facilities, not easy when you have a 1 year old!!
Representing WTC at People’s Church
Jacob spent a good part of this past weekend in the Toronto area, representing World Team Canada at the People’s Church Toronto Missions thrust. It’s always so encouraging to see the vision and commitment that this church has to see God’s great Gospel spread throughout the world! A special presentation by International Justice Mission Canada really opened many eyes to the shocking reality that there are some 27 Million slaves in our world today, most of them women, and many of them children. Pray for the various organizations that seek to meet critical needs around the world – spiritual, emotional, physical and justice related.
Heart and Stroke Jump Rope for Heart
Megan and Carly are working together to raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation through Westwood Public School. If you want to learn more, Follow This Link to visit Megan’s page. Any sponsorship given through this page will be for both Megan and Carly. You can also send me an email if you desire to sponsor them, but don’t wish to use your credit card online.
That’s it for this week! Thanks again for your prayers! As you rejoice in Christ today, may you be encouraged and challenged to see Christ glorified throughout ALL the nations!!!
