Dear Praying Friends
Thanks for your faithful prayers! I am so encouraged whenever I write these emails – knowing that many people pray diligently for the ongoing efforts of World Team Canada to establish reproducing churches amongst some of the least reached peoples in the world. God is SO good!
We are developing our “Pre-Field Training” program for Canadians serving in World Team fields This is an ongoing effort
- 2 Summer interns are working towards service in France – at this point funding is not sufficient – please pray! We sent 1 intern at this point. Please pray for Jermaine Ong as he learns/serves in France and Spain this summer
- We have a NEW WTC Mobilization Team member! Treven Young (Calgary), on home ministry assignment (due to family medical circumstances), will serve on our team for the next 12 months. Praise God! (Orientation takes place over the next weeks – via phone/skype) Orientation is basically complete. My trip to Alberta will finalize that, and include a debrief for the Youngs. He is already making good connections!
- A young Rosenort woman passed away suddenly this week, leaving a grieving husband and 3 young children. Please pray for the Thiessen family as they mourn the loss of their loved one Let's continue to uphold this family in prayer
- Follow up on connections made in Manitoba – some outcomes were: 2 new application starts, great connection with several church leaders, finalized Best Practices for Church Missions workshop
- Preparation for trip to Alberta – trip purpose includes: missionary debrief, new church connections, prep/training of new mobilizer, prayer team connections
- Working with 2 individuals planning to attend RACE (Reciprocal Agency & Candidate Evaluation) in Philadelphia in July
Mobilization & ChurchLink
P.S. During this next year, I will seek to establish several prayer cells across Canada. During the trip to Alberta, I’ll be visiting one of our prayer cells, partly to see how they’re set up – in order to replicate this. If you are interested in forming part of a World Team Canada prayer cell, let me know by clicking on this link YES I’D LIKE TO FORM PART OF A PRAYER CELL!
