Wow! God is doing amazing things through this great BCMB Conference we belong to. C2C the church planting movement told of all the new plants throughout BC and Canada and we met several of the Planters. How to summarize it…changed lives, healed people…Christ at work in new and exciting ways. Check them out here: http://www.c2cnetwork.ca/
Camps too all reported increase in campers and those knowing and beginning to follow Jesus. The Pines showed us a video of before and after of the wind storm that totally change everything about the camp. They were so grateful for all the support that continues to pour in. It was a heart wrenching time for Gene & his staff. Pray for strength to see them through this busy camping year.
Some changes too! We welcomed Rob Thiessen as conference Minister. Rob is a Godly man who cares deeply for the Shepherds and the flock. His passion for intimacy and prayer shaped the whole weekend. We said goodbye to Marilyn Hiebert who was honored for her amazing ministry to the Conference over the past 12 years. She retires in June and will clearly be missed.
Our Church Loved on us!
A blessed and refreshing time of rest followed the Conference at Harrison Hot Springs.
It is always a good thing to step back for a day or two and press in with God. Intimacy takes T.I.M.E.
Phil Collins from Willow Park helped us with much humor and good teaching. Times of prayer and repentance bringing us closer to the Father’s heart while worshiping and proclamations of the Word helped to focus, strengthen and heal weary pastors.
As I prepared for the next month of intensive ministry in Kenya this was just what I needed.
God is SO Good!
