Mission Trip Day 5 – Update from Canada

Sunday, April 24 – Today we had a wonderful time as we spent the afternoon in Penticton Prayer Walking and making some final preparations for our Easter Egg Hunt. You can sense the excitement as we get closer to the event. I was thinking this morning as I was praying about all those scattered around North America have pitched in and have contributed to this one activity in Penticton BC. People have sent money and or eggs filled with candy from the following  states… California, Colorado, Kentucky, Washington, Ohio, Virginia, and Georgia. We thank God for all of you who have caught the vision for this event and have gone the extra mile to help out. I promise lots of pics and some testimony from the Team on their experiences.
Today the Team Prayer Walked six streets as well as around LocoLanding. I spoke to a young man who has been drifting from town to town and is looking for a place to “land”. Please join me in praying for him. We talked to a young father about the Easter Egg Hunt, please pray that he will show up with his two small children. He helped me pick out a proper kite for out basket give away…With some of your financial gifts and several donations from NLBC, FBC Washington, and Lifesong Christian Bookstore we were able to put together a basket valued at over 150.00.
Today we were busy so pics are slim. we did stop and take a pic at a lake overlook. The Team is gracious and pose on request and they are always smiling. We were treated to a beautiful day here today and we are praying for a sunny and dry day on Monday. Please join us in praying for the weather here to hold off until after the Easter Egg Hunt, which begins at 11am. There are over 170 families who have sent a RSVP. Should be a wild and wonderful time!
Blessing and Praise to our Lord…

More mission team from Ga updates

What happened today (Friday) with the NLBC Mission Team…
Today we attended a Good Friday Community Worship Service in West Kelowna. There were 6 churches who provided leadership to the service and it was well attended with over 500 in a standing room only auditorium. It was a powerful time of Praise and Worship, followed by an Easter message that was clearly evangelistic, followed by a communion service. It was very good and talk is that next year we will have to rent out the hockey arena to hold the crowd.
We spent the afternoon driving over the mountain pass to pray in Merritt and pick up Easter Egg Hunt supplies at a partnering church in Kamloops. the drive was a little over 3 hours but with sight seeing stops, visits, and a meal in Vernon it was 7 hours of Creation adventures, prayers, and fun fellowship.
Tomorrow will be spent mainly Prayer Walking in Penticton. The Team has been invited to a British Dinner Party tomorrow night which will be fun and filling!
Today’s pics shows us on top of the mountain pass with snow and snow fun. Visiting with the Ministry Team at The Bridge Baptist Church in Kamloops.
Blessings and Love

Mission team update

This afternoon we stuffed 5000 Easter Eggs and had a great time of fellowship. We are excited and ready to go. Tomorrow we have a community Good Friday Worship Service and then  off to Prayer Walk in the town of Merritt, where we hope to participate with some other churches in Planting a Church in the near future. We will be going over the connector which is a mountain pass so we should see lots of snow tomorrow (up close) and have some pics of a new town for our Prayer Warriors to begin some focused interceding.

Mission Team Day 2

Today we had a very full day beginning with devotions at 9am and ending with a crash course in Canadian culture at 10pm, in between we spent time with the Pastor of Potter’s House Community Church getting some history of the church and their role in planting churches, we learned what our NAMB missionaries did to encourage other Pastors and churches from small and isolated churches in the interior of BC. We also visited Penticton where we visited the Mel at the Christian Bookstore, Prayed over Penticton from Munson Mountain, and prayer walked the area where the Easter Egg Hunt will be on Monday.
Some of these pictures will show you the places where we where. We appreciate your continued prayers and support for the Mission Team and their willingness to come and give of themselves to reach this area with God great love.

Mission Team is Here!

The NLBC Mission Team arrived safe and sound to Kelowna Canada. They were certainly tired after their long flights but were glad top arrive and find out about this place we now call home. After a nice meal the Team was taken to their homes away from homes for a good nights rest. Wednesday the Team will have some Canadian orientation, lunch with the Potter’s House Community Church (PHCC) Ministry Team and then off to Penticton for the afternoon. There will will visit the Christian bookstore and meet Mel, the owner. We will pray over the city as well as where we will have the Easter Egg Hunt on Monday. In the evening we will meet some more of the PHCC family who will help assimilate the Team farther into the Canadian culture with the goal of helping to meet people when we are Prayer Walking later in the week. There will be many photo opportunities in the days ahead so we look forward to sharing those with everyone who may be joining us to have a virtual mission trip and prayer walking experience.
Blessings and Appreciation for God’s grace and your Prayers.
