Mission Trip 2018

Posted on : 08-03-2018 | By : wmb | In : Uncategorized

Plans are under way for MT 2018, we are currently seeking as to where the Lord would have us to serve this year. We are not exactly sure what our work will include but most likely be very similar to past trips. It is quite possible that we will leave the church on Saturday June 16 and return on Sunday, June 24.

At this time we are looking to get an idea as to how many we will have going. If you intend to be a member of the team, or are considering it please pick up one of the forms from the foyer or see Maudell to get one, just fill it out and return it to the office before March 4. Youth must have their parent’s signature as well. Thank you to all who have responded already, we are looking forward to serving with you.

Please be in prayer for those who are seeking the Lord’s will as to where we will serve this year, and those who have already committed to the mission. As you do so please give prayerful consideration as to how the Lord would have you to serve with us.

“We must not love with word or speech, but with truth and action.” (1 John 3:18) John provides the essence of a life on mission; it’s the calling for all followers of Christ. Sculpted in God’s image, we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to boldly share the gospel so that others will know His love. No matter where we are or what our stage of life may be, God is calling us to be His advocates through praying, giving and going. With over 269 million people in North America who do not know Jesus Christ, we must urgently pursue God’s plan to be on mission here and now. Our prayers and support make it possible for the North American Mission Board (NAMB) to train, resource & send more than 5000 missionaries who share the good news of Christ. They are putting John’s words into action with our help. Prayer guides for Week of Prayer, March 4-11 & offering envelopes will be available throughout this month.

Connect Student Ministry

During my time at this church, I have noticed a passionate heart for the young people here and in our community. One place this passion was most evident was in the lives of Pastor
John and Shirley. They both made great sacrifices for these students, many that went unseen, and their involvement in the lives of these students has had a great impact. I pray this passion that they helped instill will always be characteristic of this church. As we move forward, it will take many to fill their shoes. For the student ministry to continue to be successful, it will take an entire church that is passionate about teaching these students what it means to have a relationship with God and how to grow that relationship. This does not mean each person must work directly with students but that the body as a whole will make an intentional effort to care for these students. This can happen in a variety of ways such as: Taking time to talk to them, taking time to listen them, encouraging them, making an effort to include them and, most importantly, praying for them. I know that a lot of these things many of you already do, so thank you and keep up the good work. On another note, in the upcoming months, we have several student activities in the works. However, we are still working through many of the dates and details so I will pass them along as soon as possible.

Update from Paul Ingold

Update from Paul Ingold, one of our foreign missionaries that visited the Fellowship a few years back. Paul said I could share his update with the Fellowship:

“I am going to India on the 4th of February (until the 25) praying, for great contacts with those who will be using the New Hindi Bible to share their faith and disciple others (mainly Hindus) . Also we will be finishing details on the translation, getting it on an app with audio also.

My wife, Nancy’s health has taken a dip — she had to go back on Prednisone, but not as serious as before. Our son Jeremy is now in the wait for a kidney transplant. Please pray for a living donor. He is also looking for work in Southern California and has decided he wants to go to CBU in the fall This is a miracle, because about 4 months ago we realized part of his learning problems were due to irlen syndrome, he has got special glasses that have helped him and boosted his confidence. Other two children Joanna and Micah are doing fine at CBU. We are set to go back to Canada April 1st.”
