Our Website & Social Media
It's ALIVE! I mean it's live... A little over a month ago, I was talking to a missionary friend. We talked for nearly three hours and I gleaned a lot of information from him. One of the things he expressed to me was the importance of having a professional website and email address. He shared with me the difficulties he had when communicating his website and email. How he had to constantly spell out both his last name and the country so that people would get the spelling right. Imagine my surprise when I discovered CanadaChurchPlanting.com was available! The name itself communicates our mission! As he said to me later "It's precise, simple, and active."Praise the Lord! I am excited for what the Lord is doing! We have already been contacted by people wanting to find a church in Canada. Within 24hrs we had 120 people like our Facebook page, over 30 people signup on our website to receive our monthly newsletter, and a family reach out from Afghanistan. God is good!
Our First Survey Trip (April 3 - April 13)
We are excited to announce our first survey trip to Canada! We will be heading up to the Alberta province and will be surveying in the cities of Calgary, Edmonton, and Banff. This will be a great opportunity for us to share the gospel while gathering the information needed to discern God's leading. Please pray for the leading of the Holy Spirit. Pray that we will be able to lead people to Christ, pray that we will be able to gather enough survey data to discern God's leading, and pray for our safety and protection as we travel.
College & Missionary Courses
Laura and I are currently enrolled at Louisiana Baptist University. I am working on my B.A. in Biblical Studies and majoring in Missions and currently taking seven courses this semester. Laura is working on the required six missionary courses that she will need to have completed by Sept 2020. Please pray for us as we have a lot of material and assignments to complete in a short amount of time.
BBFI Missions: Intern Missionary Application and Interview
We submitted our pre-application to BBFI Missions for their Recognized Intern Missionary program on Dec 28, 2019 and already had our first of many interviews in February. This intern program is designed to help those who are called to become Career Missionaries, like us, meet the one year on staff requirement. Currently the BBFI Missions team is looking for a missionary in Canada that we can serve with, as an intern, for one year. Please pray that they will be able to find a good fit for us.
