Over the past year we have supported worldwide missions in:
Malawi, Africa – Wes and Lorrie Jonat who oversee and help administrate many locally run ACOP churches in Malawi and work with many of the pastors and their congregations there. It is a country like many others in Africa, ravaged by HIV and AIDS, poverty and dependence, and many orphaned children. The Jonats have now relocated to Canada and are seeking what God would have for them next, so please continue to pray for them.
Central America – Gerald and Ruth Nygren are missionaries to southern Mexico to the Panama Canal with a heart for Latin America. Please pray for safety as they travel throughout Mexico and further and that the people there would be well grounded in the Word of God and that the Word would continue to spread throughout the regions. They are thoroughly enjoying their time there ministering. See their report below.
Trevor Harris – Trevor is like a father figure to our congregation but his spirit is still fired up for God. We have been supporting him as he travels around the world preaching and helping local ministers of the gospel. Pray for his continued good health and fire! See his report below also.
Locally we support:
Canada – Street Invaders under the umbrella of AYMI (Apostolic Youth Ministries International) run by Larry Moore, this ministry is seeing the fire of God come forth through the Christian youth of Canada with a vision to be nation wide and putting ministry back out into the communities in which we live. We have benefited largely from this ministry to our youth and in the youth who have come to visit. Pray that the vision for both a nation wide presence and for passionate active youth for Christ would be realized.
Vancouver Gospel Mission – Barry Babcook has been running and administrating the Gospel Mission for many years to help out the less fortunate of Vancouver’s inner city. We have had teams go to help out with renovations and dinners in the past and recently with the some of the men going to help out. Pray for continued favour for the mission within the city and that lives would be set free and healed from the trials of life on the street.
We have recently heard from Leading Influence Ministries, led by Tim Schindel. He is ministering to our MLAs in Victoria and seeing amazing stories and victories in this delicate realm of politics. Although he often gives credit to the open doors he enjoys to others who shove him through!, he is definitely God’s man of the hour in that area of influence. http://www.leadinginfluence.com
Although things are in transition and ministries are changing there are many things to be excited about for the future. Together we are affecting our surroundings and in praying and supporting these godly works you can and do have a part in them.
