The People's Church

This morning Liz and I had the wonderful privilege of sharing about our new ministry with our friends at The People's Church in Truro. Liz and I attended People's Church six years ago when we lived in Truro - it was wonderful to be with them today to renew old friendships and meet new friends. It was indeed a real encouragement for us to be there on the closing day of their annual missions conference, and we were blessed to be cared for by the congregation in prayer.

During the service I shared a brief testimony of our life since leaving Truro and an update on our call to ministry, I also had the opportunity to show some pictures and video from this past summers camp ministries at Arrowhead.

We were also pleased to be asked to share with the kids during Junior Church. Elizabeth taught a lesson on sin with a wonderful object lesson for the kids illustrating how sin is separation from God and yet we can enjoy freedom through Jesus Christ.

We were excited to be able to use our new Arrowhead display and materials table for the first time today, many folks availed themselves of the various NCEM materials and stopped to chat with us about the ministry.

We did have an exciting start to the day and weren't sure if our car was going to co-operate with us today as it once again began to smoke as we neared Truro. But the smoking subsided and we arrived safe and sound - our return trip to Windsor was without incident - once again the Lord provided for us, for which we are very grateful.

This week promises to be a busy one, I am hoping to get a lot done on the house in preparing it for a realtor to look at, and we will be preparing our second newsletter update to send out in November.
