What would history look like if people had done their due diligence? I know there would be some major mistakes that I would have avoided if I had done my research. When we use hindsight, we can have a clear vision of what needs to be done. For example, the rich man in hell (Luke 16) requested that someone go to warn his family, so that they would not go there too. The answer was given that they have Moses and the Prophets, in other words, the Old Testament. They should have diligently read and believed the Word of God that they had been given.

ABWE Canada sent $26,200 for refugee relief in December 2015. Here is a report from our partner in the Middle East who works with refugees:

“Allow me to start by saying thank you, thank you for your heart, thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve those in need from Syria. Thank you for the offering you gave to provide for our ministry amongst the Syrian. We highly appreciate you.

Recently, one of ABWE’s medical personnel, Todd DeKryger died after contracting a virus while serving at the Hospital of Hope in North Togo. He leaves his wife, Jennifer and their four young boys. Obviously, the field of Togo and the whole mission is grieving the loss of a faithful servant who served as the Medical Director at the hospital. The DeKryger family have served for more than 10 years in Togo. This leaves a big gap in the leadership and personnel at the Mango hospital. It is hard to understand why this happened. I am comforted to know that events like these do not take God by surprise. If you are interested in reading more about how God is working through this tragedy, I encourage you to go to Dr. Kelly Faber’s blog . Kelly explains some of the events surrounding Todd’s homegoing.

Thank you for your prayer and financial support of ABWE missionaries and their ministries. We appreciate your interest in the work of the Lord around the world. The Bible teaches us that "to whom much is given, much will be required." This truth reminds me both of my responsibility to be a wise steward of the resources God has given me, but also it reminds me of the importance of my accountability to the one who has given the gift.

Some say that the only constant in this life is change. It is true that life on this earth is a series of changes, but we worship the unchangeable God who provides us with the peace that passes all understanding in the transitions through Jesus Christ who is the same throughout eternity: yesterday, today, and forever.

Canadians, John and Jacky Taylor and their family have served faithfully as ABWE Canada missionaries in the Ukraine since 1993. I know that they can tell you many stories about the sweeping changes they have seen in the Ukraine in the past 22 years...

My father went to Israel in 1970 on a tour given to him by an anonymous benefactor. He returned with hundreds of slides and stories. His stories brought the Bible stories I had heard in church and at home to life. We saw pictures of Jacob’s well where Jesus spoke to the woman of Samaria and pictures of the Sea of Galilee where Jesus calmed the storm and also walked on the water. One tangible thing that my father brought back with him was a nativity set made of olivewood which he had bought in Bethlehem. When I hold that set in my hands today, the rich aroma of the olivewood transports me back in time to the hours we spent learning of the land where Jesus was born, walked, lived, taught, healed, loved, wept, died, was resurrected, and ascended into heaven.

Brazil has been an ABWE Canada field for more than 60 years. The Caveys, Cuthberts, and Joyce Hatch were the first Canadians to be sent out in those early days and God used them mightily to reach souls, plant churches, and train leaders.
