May 2017

May smallA few weeks ago on a ministry trip visiting missionaries and churches I was able to travel to western Canada for the first time in my life. Previously, the furthest that I had traveled west in North America was the city of Chicago so flying to Calgary, AB and then driving to Victoria, BC was an amazing opportunity for me. Now, some of you live in western Canada or you travel there on a regular basis so you have become accustomed to mountains, but as I was driving west through places like Banff, Lake Louise, and Revelstoke, I was awestruck by the sheer grandeur of the scenery surrounding me.

“We will all move forward together, never giving in to terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.”
-- UK Prime Minister Theresa May, March 22, 2017

A lone terrorist aimed his car like a weapon at pedestrians as they crossed Westminster Bridge in London, England. He went on to fatally stab a policeman guarding Parliament and its occupants. The assault stopped only when armed officers opened fire.

March 2017 Brazil March 2017 small

Missions beyond Brazil’s borders has taken a giant leap forward after the impetus of ABWE’s ministry there for over seventy years.  A missionary’s job is to multiply his ministry through the lives of those whom he serves. Historically, that meant winning people to Christ and discipling and training them to reach their own people. Several fields and missions around the world have now taken the next step—forming their own national agencies, who then, send their own members beyond their borders. We would like to spotlight the exciting progress seen in Brazil.

February 2017February17 small

Saying “thank you” is such an important part of our lives. We are taught by our parents, family members, teachers, and guardians that communicating our thankfulness to others is a necessity in our interaction with other people. A simple verbal “thank you” or a written thank you note is always appreciated by those that receive this feedback.

January picture smallJanuary 2017

A New Year often brings new hope and new excitement to people in North America. The idea of making New Year resolutions spurs many of us to make commitments regarding our health and well-being, both physically and spiritually. Many regular members of a fitness or athletic club say that January is the worst time to go to the gym because many new people sign up because of a health goal that they want to achieve. However, the regular gym members will also tell you that by the end of January or the beginning of February the congestion of the gym disappears as many well-meaning individuals allow their fitness goals to fall by the wayside as their lives become too busy with other things.

December 2016Dec16 picture small

December is a month that I look forward to every year. The reason I enjoy December so much is Christmas. I am not ashamed to say that I love the Christmas season. From my earliest childhood memories, I have loved erecting the Christmas tree, stringing the lights, and hanging the ornaments. Why? Because every year one of my favourite pastimes is laying on the floor underneath/beside the tree and gazing through the branches at the shimmering lights and sparkling ornaments. Then spending time with family and friends during the holidays is such a blessed experience that I look forward to it every year.

November 2016 

Nov pic small

November is the month of remembrance in our country. Canadians around the country take their commemorative poppies out of their drawers and boxes and once again wear them proudly on their clothing. Everywhere across our nation, individuals pause and think about the ultimate sacrifice that so many Canadian young people made so that we may enjoy the freedoms that we hold so dear in this country.
