Keep Praying!

Keep Praying!                          June 24, 2018

We are nearing the end of June and preparations for Summer Missions Training are wrapping up!  We are excited about the coming summer, excited to meet the missionaries who will be working with us this year, excited to see how God will work in the lives of children all across Ontario!

On Tuesday you received a special mid-week newsletter highlighting an urgent need for more summer missionaries.  Indeed, the numbers are small this summer, and we can’t help but wonder how many children we will be able to reach with so few missionaries.

I am reminded of Gideon, who on the eve of battle was told to eliminate first 2/3 of his army, then 97% of those who were left, until the army of 30,000 became a band of 300 men!  And with those few men God gave the victory!  (You can read the whole story in Judges 7.)

God’s ways are not our ways.  Yet we know that He cares about the lost, and wants to send out His servants to reach more.  Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”  (Matthew 9:37-38)

Please pray with us that the Lord of the harvest will send out workers into the neighbourhoods of Ontario this summer.  Share this need with your churches and prayer groups.  As we pray together we will see God do what we could not imagine.  You will share in the victory, and the glory will be God’s alone!

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.  (Ephesians 3:20-21)

Keep building the Kingdom!
