Dear Praying Friends
I trust you’re enjoying some summer experiences! It’s been cooler in Alberta, really wet in parts of Saskatchewan and Manitoba… so, I’m sure not everyone’s summer is going as planned. Let’s keep fixing our eyes on Jesus – He never leaves or forsakes us: regardless of our circumstances.

- Missions Event for Chinese Churches – Saturday, June 28 – this event provided good connections into the Chinese church community in Toronto! Follow up is underway!
- Organizing Fall travel and ministry schedule – this fills up fast… pray that I’ll choose the BEST over the good – ongoing prayer request
- Personal and family preparation for the Oasis ministry – last week of July – please keep praying!
- Enjoying summer weather with Karen, Megan and Carly – June has been fantastic!!!! – yep, fantastic!
- R.A.C.E. (Reciprocal Assessment and Candidate Evaluation) – July 19-25 in Warrington PA – Richard and Miriam Salas (and their 8 year old daughter) from Winnipeg will be attending. They have an interest in serving in several areas within the World Team context. As usual, when there are Canadians attending RACE, I will be there. We anticipate a good group for the July event.
- Preparations for returning short-term workers – Paige Friesen (serving in Moldova since late May, returning July 08), Lisa Belau (serving in Cameroon since mid-March, returning July 18 - with a view to go back to Cameroon for a 2 year term), and Christine Schmidt (serving in France since September, returning mid-August). I will be conducting debriefs, discussing next steps, and re-orienting them back to Canada.
- Ongoing preparations for Fall – planning a trip to Alberta, a trip to Manitoba, a possibility of R.A.C.E. in November, and other activities locally.
- Follow up with connections made at Mission Event
Thanks again for your prayers! As we celebrate the joy of Jesus, share that joy with others, and mobilize others to share with those we may never meet, we work in alignment with Jesus’ goals and values!
