Booklets with a Story!

It almost seemed as though these booklets were destined to not make it to their destination—but who knows where God intended them to go!
One of this year’s children’s offering project at the Albright Church in Winnipeg was to raise money to supply our summer youth mission team with copies of The Story of Jesus in Spanish. The children brought their offerings, tithes and gifts, and a hundred booklets were received from LifeLight Ministries. They would be on their way to Mexico in just a few weeks to be distributed to kids through VBS programs that the mission team would run in Mexico…. (At least that’s what we thought would happen!)
On the way to the airport it was discovered that the box of booklets had been left behind! A quick trip back to the church, and the booklets were on their way—across the border to Minneapolis, a flight to Los Angeles, into the bus, and off to Tijuana—soon to be handed out to boys and girls!
As the luggage and supplies were unloaded from the bus transporting the youth from the YWAM (Youth with a Mission) base in Los Angeles to the YWAM base in Mexico, one little box was missing; it seemed to have followed another route. Someone “helped himself” to this box, which happened to be the one with the hundred copies of The Story of Jesus—and away it went! Where did it end up? Only God knows for sure, but we are confident that “Our good news didn’t come to you only in words. It came with power. It came with the Holy Spirit’s help” (1 Thessalonians 1:5). We trust that God delivered these booklets to those who needed to receive them (with the help of someone we don’t even know!).

Circuit-Riding Preacher

Allen Hilgendorf is an itinerant preacher evangelist with SAC International (formerly Shantymen) in the North Hastings and Madawaska Highlands in Ontario. He visits house to house, by vehicle, bicycle, canoe and horseback… Along the way he distributes Christian literature and lends a willing ear to people who need someone to talk to, building relationships as he travels. He regularly requests Scriptures from LifeLight Ministries to distribute.
In the summer the ministry includes setting up at fairs, festivals and rodeos. He dresses up as an old-time circuit riding preacher and participates in every parade that is available to him. Usually several volunteers flank him as he rides, passing out appropriate Christian literature to hundreds of people.
Creativity is one of Allen’s great strengths. He dresses up for rodeos and fairs and creates venues in which to draw a crowd. By advertising and conducting the meetings in a pioneer setting—inviting folks to come by horse and antique auto…even dressed up in period clothing—he creatively provides a fun atmosphere for a serious message.
Allen had the opportunity in July to speak at the Palmer Rapids Music Festival, which takes place annually on the banks of the beautiful Madawaska River. He writes: “For the third year I was asked to preach at the Festival during the Sunday Gospel Hour. This year I took my horse, dressed in my circuit-reading preacher outfit, rode around to the hundreds of trailer sites and handed out The Way for Cowboys New Testaments, along with other literature. After riding to the different camps, I spoke on Paul’s words to the Corinthians, ‘I beg you…be reconciled to God.’ After I spoke, several people came forward to receive either the Heart of the Outdoors Bible or the NT for cowboys. Praise the Lord!
“In August we had a camp-out and Ride Your Horse to Church Sunday at an old heritage church. Again I dressed the part, preached an old-time gospel message, and left The Way for Cowboys for people to pick up on their way out.
“During hunting season I visit hunt camps and hand out Heart of the Outdoors Bibles at each camp, sometimes deep in the woods.

One Bible Makes a Difference

My husband and I took a stack of Spanish Scriptures along last summer on a vacation to the Dominican Republic. We gave most of them to a poor pastor we got to know a few years ago. Their church is very evangelistic, and they have new Christians regularly. Poor Dominican Christian families often have only one old, very worn Bible for the whole family.We also gave a Bible to another poor pastor, Pastor Garcia, who felt led to start a church a few years ago in a very poor community, where alcoholism and illiteracy are rampant. He also started a school (Kindergarten and Grade 1) and pays the teacher out of his own pocket. He himself is poor and supports an extended family. The offering at the church is about seventy cents a week, which probably buys a handful of rice or some bananas.
Pastor Garcia had led a woman to the Lord just the night before, and she had asked for a Bible. He didn’t have one for her, so he was very happy for the one we gave him. We went to visit a family in Santiago (a grandma and four orphaned grandchildren) whom we support. They live in terrible poverty in a miserable shack, without running water or a bathroom.I had two New Testaments left, so I gave one, Mi Ciudad, Mi Dios (My City, My God), to 12-year-old Michele, the oldest of the orphans. She immediately started reading and was immersed in it throughout most of our visit. The other one, How to Find God (in Spanish), went to a young woman who is part of the extended family. She also started reading it right away, from the beginning. The grandma is illiterate, and I didn’t see any reading material in the home.

Rags, Water, Sunflower Seeds and the Gospel

Show and Shine, an event where people bring their Harleys and hot rods to show off, attracts thousands of people every year from all over Manitoba and surrounding areas. It is held in conjunction with the Corn and Apple Festival in Morden, Manitoba, at the end of August. What better place to reach bikers with the gospel of Jesus Christ!
This year we tried something different: I picked up tracts, with the plan of salvation, from LifeLight Ministries, and we wrapped each one in a polishing cloth. As we greeted the bikers when they rode in, we handed them the cloth—a rag to clean their bikes and God’s Word to clean their lives!
The southern Manitoba chapter of the Christian Motorcyclists Association (CMA) set up a hospitality area in a cool, shaded area, where we handed out bottled water, bags of sunflower seeds and Hope for the Highway New Testaments from LifeLight Ministries.
Every once in a while bikers who have received a New Testament will come back to us the next year with questions about verses they have read.

CMA is an inter-denominational association of Christian motorcyclists whose mission is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with bikers and anyone else who wishes to hear the gospel message.

Backpacks Filled with Love

Dixie kept her smile until the last of the 155 backpacks had been handed out—then she wept!
Along with the Thanksgiving turkey and pumpkin pie, Dixie and some of her friends found the time on Thanksgiving Sunday to make sure that others in Winnipeg also had something to be thankful for. They gave away backpacks stuffed with essential items such as socks, towels, toothpaste and soap—and yes, there were also turkey sandwiches and water bottles.
The greatest gift in each backpack was a copy of a New Testament, How to Find God, from LifeLight Ministries. Each bag was filled with the love of Jesus and a prayer that the recipients would be touched by His love and receive Christ as their Saviour.
Donations poured in from many people and various places. Dixie said, “It’s something the Lord led us to do. We are very thankful we have these means… But for all the good that’s being done, there is still an enormous need for more help.”
The people who received these gifts were thrilled with the group’s generosity. “This is such a neat idea,” said Jackson. “They’re great people. Most of us are hurting, and we don’t have much going for us.” John said, “I stay on the streets, and sometimes I sleep outside. There’s nowhere to go on Sunday except Siloam, where they have dinner.” Ronald has been on the streets for three years and has turned to drugs. He has been barred from several places where he could sleep inside. “I was a bad boy, “ he laughed. I carry a blanket and sleep outside.”
The blessings of this day may or may not be seen by those who gave donations, but each one will be rewarded in some way. Pray that those who were touched by God’s love and received a copy of How to Find God will read this New Testament, understand the Gospel message, find God and begin a personal relationship with Him.

The Word in their Language

In February, a team of nine people from the Church of the Rock in Winnipeg drove down to Aldama, Mexico. Aldama is a small village located in the mountains five hours south of Brownsville, Texas.
We took day trips to small communities and shared the gospel through song, drama and preaching. We gave Spanish New Testaments and Bibles to those who came forward to accept Christ as their Saviour and those who asked for prayer. One woman commented that it had been “seven years since someone from Canada visited our village.”
We spent an afternoon visiting people in the hospital in Matamoros. People were open to receive prayer for healing, and we were also able to encourage them through the spoken, as well as the written, Word. We were excited about the opportunity to give many of them a copy of the Scriptures in their own language.

Building Houses, Building Hope

In March the grade 11 and 12 students of Calvin Christian Collegiate (Winnipeg) boarded two buses and travelled to Mexico. Their ten-day trip had a goal—to build six homes for six families in the border town of Ciudad Juarez.
“Building Houses, Building Hope” is at the heart of Amor Ministries. Being in contact with Amor has been life changing for us at Calvin Christian. We have the privilege of raising money to buy all the materials for a house and then travelling down to Juarez and building that house for a family chosen by Mexican pastors who work and pastor in that area.
This year the number of students going made up six teams, which meant that we could build six houses. Our days are filled with building (only hand tools, no electricity or generators), playing with children and meeting the families. In the course of four to five days, a simple but sturdy house is standing.
Following is an experience of one of the teams:
“All of us in our group went into the house and lined up against the walls. Since there were only interior studs and not actual interior walls, we could see the entire space from any point. The Mexican family was ushered into the house and stood in the middle of the structure. Even though they had watched the construction process, it was moving for them to finally stand in and imagine themselves living in the structure. There were quiet tears and watery eyes as they stood there.
“Belinda, one of our students, spoke to them and welcomed them, in Spanish. We read some Spanish Scripture, had a prayer for them and left them with a Spanish Bible. The family responded with some comments, with Belinda translating. We concluded the ceremony with the song Praise God from whom all blessings flow, as we held hands. We presented the family with their house keys, a clear example to them of ownership.
“After hugs and handshakes, our group left, turning back to see the family standing in the doorway of the house we built. I felt that we had been hands and feet for our Lord, and we were blessed indeed.”
Our students have been impacted by the graciousness, joyfulness and thankfulness of the Mexican families. We have been blessed to share in the building of God’s kingdom in Mexico. The families gratefully accept the Bibles given to them, along with the key to their new home! We give the rest of the Bibles to the pastors who work there. They continue to distribute them where there is a need.

Pastors Share Bible

Sometime ago we received a request from Pedro, a pastor in Cuba: Praise God for the NIV Study Bible that one of my friends received! I’m wondering how I can get one as well. I have written to several places but have not received an answer. I’m a pastor in Cuba and also teach in two seminaries. Please “come over to Macedonia and help us.”
A short time later John van der Ahe wrote: Through an e-mail we received from Pedro we became aware of your existence. We haven’t heard about this ministry; please tell us about it.
For the past seventeen years my wife and I have been going to Cuba to encourage the pastors of all denominations. We bring them Bibles, musical instruments, communion cups, medial supplies, shoes and clothing. The pastors are hungry for fellowship with Christians from abroad, which is more important to them than gifts.
Pedro is a Baptist pastor in Floro Perez. He is asking for a Spanish NIV Study Bible for the pastors of Floro Perez, meaning that this Bible will be shared with other pastors in this small town. Less than half of the Christians in Cuba own a Bible
Just a few days ago, Pedro sent us this e-mail:
Dear friends in Christ:
I have no words to say THANKS A LOT! It is an amazing miracle to have my NIV Study Bible and the Planner. Thanks again.
Serving Jesus,
Rev. Pedro A. Obregon Sanchez

Tools for the Job

Another farmer and I travelled to the Sudan to do a farm project under Cal Bombay Ministries. When we arrived in Kampala, Uganda, we stayed at the African Inland Mission (AIM) guesthouse. The AIM compound has a distribution centre for AIM pastors in Uganda. I left three How to Find God NTs with them and also gave a Bible to a security guard who, I assume, was not a Christian.
Then I left for Sudan to work with the farm operation. Later, when I got back to the AIM office in Kampala, the security guard told me that the Bible I had given him was the first one he had ever had that he could understand. Of course, I was delighted to hear that!
When I returned home I had an e-mail from Kwagala Sande, who works under AIM. He wrote: “I lead a project called Tools for the Job, which provides African pastors with suitable study books. Some of the pastors open churches without any training or any Bible knowledge, so our vision is to provide them with the materials they need. Some of them request Bibles because they can’t afford to buy them. I have done a lot of travelling in Uganda and get the same request wherever I go.
“It was a blessing to meet a missionary from Canada. He told me about LifeLight Ministries and gave me a copy of a New Testament, How to Find God. I’m sure many people are blessed by your ministry of taking the good news of Jesus Christ to many parts of the world. God bless you all.”

Open Air Outreach

For the fourth year Forest Baptist Church led services at the Pinery Provincial Park near Grand Bend, Ontario. This provincial park is open year around for camping and is one of the highest traffic parks in the system, with one thousand camping spaces.
We held sixteen services, with the final service on the Thanksgiving weekend. All the messages were from the Gospel of John. Those who were interested received a copy of the Gospel of John when they arrived and were also offered other Scriptures, including New Testaments which we received from LifeLight Ministries. Each week, following the service, a number of people came by the picnic table, spread with a variety Scriptures, and helped themselves.
One father, with a few children, came by the table following the service, and the little boy (seven or eight years old) picked up one of the New Testaments. I showed them the features and helps in it, and the boy asked his dad if he could please have one. His father said, “If you take it, you must read it!” The boy took it!
Up to 155 people attended the services in the middle of the summer, with about twenty people from the church serving as greeters, leading the worship team, reading Scripture, praying, preaching and helping with the setting up and taking down. During July and August we also had a children’s program behind the stage during the message. (Victoria Day weekend was snowy, and only six people showed up!)
Thanks to a grant from LifeLight Ministries, we were able to put more than fifty New Testaments in the hands of people from Michigan to the far reaches of Ontario, and only the Lord knows how they will be used and what the results will be in changed lives.
We have already confirmed that we will be having these services again next summer—a great outreach into this primary vacation spot near our church!

A Place of Refuge

Overcomers Caring Ministries started about seven years ago in the Kibera slums in Kenya as a feeding centre. Then it developed into an orphanage for children from the slums. We fed them and shared the Gospel with them. We taught them the importance of being clean and drinking clean water and how to make the river water into clean drinking water.
I had the opportunity to go to this orphanage again this year with a group to do some upgrading on the building. The kitchen was too small, and the cook was cooking on a woodstove that smoked a lot. We built a new, larger kitchen and got a new stove—one that won’t smoke!
The children were sleeping on the floor with cardboard under the mattresses. When it rained, both got wet. We got some bunk beds and made new mattresses, sheets and blankets, so now the children have comfortable, dry beds to sleep in.
We had taken some LifeLight New Testaments with us and gave them to the children who could read and promised to read them. They were very grateful!
More than sixty children play in a yard that is not very big. One day as I was finishing my lunch I realized that I was the only adult around. Even with no supervision, the children were playing happily, with no fighting. They are like a big happy family, trying to forget a troubled past. It was so good to see the happy faces of the orphans. For them this orphanage is truly a place of refuge—an oasis in a world of poverty and pain.

What a Gift!

While visiting some of my Colombian friends, Francisco and Martha, I gave them a copy of the Spanish/English New Testament from LifeLight Ministries. Martha opened it with joy and read, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, nor has it entered into the mind of man what things God has prepared for those who love Him.” She was so taken up with what she was reading that she kept on while I visited with the rest of the family. She loved to look across the page to see the translation.
This family has been in Canada for almost two years, and the Holy Spirit is working in their lives. (Francisco was shot in Colombia by some extortionists and is crippled.)
Recently I made a trip to El Salvador on a tour with thirteen advocates of Compassion Canada. I took some of the English/Spanish New Testaments to distribute to the children. I spent a day with Carlos and gave him a bag of gifts. Of all the gifts, he treasured the New Testament most of all! He is trying to learn English, and he liked the side-by-side message in both the languages.
May the Spirit of Jesus Christ continue to bless people by opening up the Scriptures in a language they can understand!

I inherited your book on living; it’s mine forever—what a gift! And how happy it makes me! (The Message).

Lord, this is my only Bible!

Ambassadors for Christ Canada has been doing extensive short-term ministry throughout Latin America over the past several years. Through mission teams comprised of both lay people and church leaders, Ambassadors for Christ has engaged in leadership training, evangelism, church and school construction and renewal ministries.
Every time we go we take Bibles from LifeLight Ministries to distribute. Many believers and church leaders in Spanish-speaking countries are so poor that they cannot afford Bibles.
I (Brian) was preaching in a poor barrio. As always, I had brought a few Spanish Bibles with me. After the service, the pastor told me about a young man who needed a Bible. I said I would be happy to give him one, and as I presented him with one, I couldn’t help but notice how overwhelmed he was by this incident. I asked him to tell me what was happening.
He told me that he had been witnessing to another man whom he worked with for several months. One night as he was praying, he felt that God was telling him to give his only Bible to this man. At first he argued with the Lord, saying, “Lord, this is my only Bible, and I can’t afford to buy another one. If this man becomes a Christian, then I will try to help him get one.” However, his conviction from God was too much, so he yielded and gave his only Bible away. (This was on a Wednesday.) Then he said, “Now here we are, on Friday night, and God has given me a new Bible that is nicer than I ever could have imagined!” With that, he left to go, gripping his new Bible and rejoicing in the Lord.
A few days later we were at our host pastor’s home. While we were visiting, he received a phone call from another pastor who had heard that we had given out a few Bibles. She asked if we had any more, since she did not currently have one. I remembered that I had more back in our hotel room, so I asked her to meet me the next day. The next day she walked several miles and came bouncing into the house as she anticipated receiving this new Bible. As Linda, my wife, presented the Bible to her she hugged us repeatedly and kept saying “gracias” over and over again, with a huge grin.
These and other experiences have convinced us that whenever and wherever we travel with mission teams, a necessary item for our luggage is Bibles to give away.

Out of the Darkness
Grace Amos
When my grandpa died, it hit me harder than I ever thought it would. After the funeral I kept thinking about death and about why we are on this earth if we’re all just living to die. I felt so lost!
One night I was home alone and decided to dig around in my closet. I had no idea what I was looking for, but as I was going through some boxes that I was keeping for my mother, I came across a book. At first I thought it was just some self-help book, but when I read the title, How to Find God, I became curious, so I sat down and started reading it. I soon realized that it was actually a Bible! After reading the section “How you can know God” I was in tears, as I realized why my life was in complete darkness, and in November 2006 I accepted Jesus into my heart.
Those were the first steps, but I didn’t really do anything about my new life until New Year’s Eve when I went to church instead of going out with my friends to party. My kids and I were living on a reserve in Saskatchewan at the time and were attending a small church.
Things were going well and I was growing in my faith, but when we left the reserve and moved to Winnipeg, I backslid. I started drinking and using cocaine and was back in darkness. Because of my choices, my kids had to do without a lot of things. I felt awful and cried all the time. Finally I said to myself, “There’s got to be more to life than this!” So I started reading that book again, prayed the salvation prayer and rededicated my life to Jesus. I found such comfort in knowing that Jesus was my Saviour!
I used to be a people pleaser; now I just want to please the Lord. Once I was a follower of the “living dead”; now I only want to be a follower of Jesus. I messed up when I tried to live according to the seven sacred teachings (I’m aboriginal), and the “spirit world” dropped me when I screwed up, but Jesus always picks me up when I fall. I still have many flaws, but God is so patient with me. A Christian friend told me that Moses, David and Paul were also far from perfect, but God still chose them to spread the Good News.
I’m just a baby in this new life, but I’m just so happy to know the Lord. I still have so much to learn, but this book, How to Find God, has helped me through many struggles. The Christian life isn’t all just sunshine and rainbows, but I know that God won’t give me more than I can handle.
Since I accepted Jesus into my life, my kids no longer have to do without food and clothes. I have found a good church, no longer go the parties I used to go to and, just recently, I destroyed all my old music CDs.
Thank you, LifeLight Ministries, for making these “baby Bibles” (as I like to call them) available for people like me.
You are my lamp, O Lord;
the Lord turns my darkness into light (2 Samuel 22:29).

Van Essen Ventures

We, together with Donna Kovacs, our newest committee member, attended MissionFest in Toronto from March 1-3. Donna’s talents were greatly appreciated.
Special guests included the African Children’s Choir and speakers Ravi Zacharias and Franklin Graham. In spite of bad weather, huge crowds attended. Marilyn and Donna had planned to share with the school children on Friday, but the event was cancelled due to an ice storm.
The three busy days were very fruitful, and we thank the Lord for the many people with whom we had contact. (Marilyn saw friends she met in the 1980s!) Pray that in the coming year we may be able to find people whom God has given an interest in helping us in this ministry.

The following two items were submitted by Donna Kovacs, John and Marilyn’s helper at these events:
Biker Day
Port Dover, Ontario: 150, 000 people visited Port Dover on Friday, July 13, for Biker Day. A record number of bikers converged on this small community on that day.
And we were there as well! We handed out approximately 160 New Testaments for bikers in three hours and then helped the various Christian Biker Associations hand out their Scriptures, tracts and magnets for another hour. We experienced many blessings in serving the Lord in this way.
One woman, known for her adulterous lifestyle, received a New Testament and gratefully said, “Heaven, help me!” That was not an empty plea!
As we attempted to hand another woman a NT, she said she needed “hope.” We told her that this NT would bring hope, and she gratefully accepted it.

Friendship Festival
Friendship Festival, Simcoe: The Friendship Festival is a civic holiday in Simcoe. We entered a float in the parade and handed out 430 goodie bags. Each one included a LifeLight Ministries newsletter, a story about Jesus, and some candy. Our float featured the Great Commission verse, … go and make disciples of all nations…, and the LifeLight banner was carried in front of the float. In this way we reached out to all who were there, not just those who received the goodie bags.
Praise God for the many other ministries represented in the parade and for the positive reaction from the crowd—clapping, cheering and some positive comments! There seemed to be a sense of gratitude at seeing the Gospel being shared so publicly.

Future Events
Pray for us as we participate this fall in the Norfolk County Fair here in Simcoe, a mission conference in the People’s Church in Toronto, and the annual Pumpkin Fest in Waterford. There will be a LifeLight table or booth at each of these events.
John and Marilyn Van Essen are the LifeLight Ministries reps in Ontario. They make their home in Simcoe.

The Spirit of God uses the Word of God to change the people of God.

Berge Lake Bible Camp

Teens Camp took place at Berge Lake Bible Camp in Lynn Lake, Manitoba, from August 31 to September 3. The teens received The LifeLight New Testaments.

Camp Memories
● Camp was awesome! Next summer I’m going to bring some friends who have never been to camp.
● I’ve been going to camp ever since I was old enough, and this year I decided to change my life by being saved.
● One of my best experiences was the devotions under the stars, in God’s creation.
● There is no place on this earth where I feel as close to heaven.
● I loved it so much I didn’t want to go home on Saturday. Whenever I’m at camp I feel so close to God.
● I made many Christian friends who had a positive influence on my life.
● I really liked the singing and playing with all the lovely bugs and listening to the birds singing in the morning.

Penners give LifeLight NT at Midway Bible Camp

Bill and Anna Penner, missionaries with Continental Mission in northern Manitoba, have many opportunities to distribute Bibles. This summer they gave Bibles to campers at Midway Bible Camp. The children were so grateful for Bibles written in a language they could understand.

Dauphin Bible Camp - Campers Treasure Bibles

In one of our cabins we had a group of girls from a variety of backgrounds—broken homes, hopelessness, lack of self-respect, culturally saturated, and a general lack of knowledge of God’s Word. One girl, in particular, came from a rough home and had experienced continuous spiritual warfare. The cabin leader provided her with a Bible. She began to study it with the leader and then took it home.
Another group of girls came with translations that were hard to understand and to memorize. Thankfully, we had easy-to-read Bibles from LifeLight Ministries which enabled the campers to easily read and begin to understand God’s love for them. A Bible is truly the most important gift that anyone can ever receive, and it is a blessing to see campers treasure them.
Richard Bankert
Dauphin Bible Camp is situated on the northern edge of Riding Mountain National Park, ten kilometres south of Dauphin, Manitoba.


Bible Camp…
… Not just decisions, but disciples for Christ
… Win a child…win a life…
… Reaching and teaching youth for life in Christ
… Where Christ and a great time go together
… The Jesus they see is the Jesus in me
… Hearts are turned toward God…one heart at a time
So keep my words in your hearts and minds…. Teach them to your children... (Deuteronomy 11).

Changed Attitudes
In today’s society it is very common for people not to have their own Bible and not to have heard the message of Jesus. Our world has become so “correct” that many of the kids who come to Teen Ranch have no clue about the gospel.
The leader in the cabins talked to the campers all week in “Time Outs” about God. In one cabin, particularly, many of the girls had very little knowledge about Christianity and didn’t pay much attention. As the week unfolded, many of them started asking for Bibles, and the leader would find them sitting on their bunks and reading their very own Bibles. They were so excited about these Bibles and were intrigued by God’s Word. It was so encouraging for the leader and for the rest of us to see the how the attitudes of these girls changed. God works in mighty ways, changing people’s hearts and minds.
Many of the leaders wrote notes of encouragement in the Bibles, and it’s exciting to think that five to ten years down the line those kids will be grown up and, we pray, will still be reading them and will look back and remember the love that was put into them.
Thank you, LifeLight Ministries, for helping these kids know about Jesus and providing us with Bibles to help them in their spiritual growth. What a blessing!

Eagle Bay Camp's Message for Campers

Jesus, the Light of the World

Each summer a ministry provides us with pillows for every camper with a picture that relates to our theme and to the main Bible verse for the week. Our verse this year was John 8:12, When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, “I am the light of the world; whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Our theme was “Jesus is the Light of the World.” At the final chapel service each week we give the pillows, together with Bibles, to the campers. Each year we see the pillows come back, and the kids also bring their Bibles from the previous year.
It was a sunny fall day at Eagle Bay Camp, and I was walking the grounds in prayerful thought about the summer programs. I was praying that the children would remember the real meaning of camp—the message that Jesus is the light of the world!
Later that morning the phone rang in my office. It was the grandmother of one of the campers. Kokum (in the native culture grandmother is “Kokum”) asked me when she could come and pick up the unclaimed clothing from camp. Each year clothes are donated to Eagle Bay and all the unclaimed clothes are given to a local reserve. I told her she could come anytime and that we were looking forward to seeing her. Thoughts were still racing through my mind: Did the campers really understand the message? Do they know that Jesus is the light of the world?
That afternoon Kokum arrived with her two grandsons. As I opened the door, I noticed that one of the boys was reading the Bible he had received at camp. As we were loading the boxes of clothing I asked Kokum whether her grandson was reading the Bible regularly. She responded, “All the time!” This thrilled me because this boy didn’t seem to be listening or paying attention during camp. After they drove away I praised God for His Word and the message that really was made known in the hearts of the campers.

Beaver Creek Bible Camp Celebration!

In the summer of 2006 I was one of the assistant directors at Beaver Creek Bible Camp. This new position provided great opportunities, great challenges, great growth and great leadership experience. As much as I loved and enjoyed being a part of the director team, at times I missed being in the cabins, especially the evening devotions with the campers. One thing I had always loved as a counsellor was to see my girls reading their Bibles. Many campers come to camp without Bibles but get to go home with their own Bible at the end of the week!
During the summer I felt so blessed to have a few chances to go into the cabins and join them for their devotion times. On each of those evenings I was able to be in the cabins of campers who gave their lives to Christ!
On one of these nights, just before the evening staff meeting was to begin, one of the counsellors came to get me. She was absolutely stoked, saying that one of her girls had accepted Christ during devotions. She wanted me to come and help celebrate with her cabin and talk to our new sister in Christ! What a night! All the campers were excited but none as excited as the new Christian. After everyone settled down, she sat on her bunk, switching between reading her Bible and asking questions. Her counsellor and I took turns talking to her and to each of the girls one on one.
It was so exciting to see her delight both in her new relationship with the Lord and in reading His Word. The next week we heard that she had led her younger sister to the Lord on the way home from camp. She couldn’t keep her new peace and joy to herself. May we all learn a lesson from her!
Pray that all the kids who receive Bibles at camp will read them throughout the year and that they will grow closer to the Lord as a result! Some of them will only learn about Him at camp for one week, but as they take their new Bibles home, they can learn all year long.

It was a privilege to give a Pathlight Bible to every camper who accepted the Lord at camp. This summer we gave away more than thirty Bibles. For most of the campers it was the first Bible they had ever owned. Following are comments from two of the parents of the campers:
●Thank you so much for everything! Another year of camp has come and gone, another year in which my son has come back singing the camp’s praises. I am a huge believer in your approach to making God the focus, while providing so much for the kids on so many levels. Having my son grow in the Lord is fantastic; he has come a long way since the time when he was ready to just walk away in his first year. (I still remember the phone call.) Thanks again, and may God richly bless you and continue to be present at the camp now and always.
● My daughter attended the first week of girls camp this summer and continues to rave about the experience. She is also doing jobs for neighbours and her grandmother so that I can register her for both weeks next year! You have made a profound difference in my daughter’s life. Her long-term goal (she’s only 10!) is to become a counsellor-in-training and then, of course, a counsellor at Camp Cherith.
Camp Cherith is located on the picturesque Saugeen River near Walkerton, Ontario.

Leaf Rapids Bible Camp Helps Kids to Grow in Love

Dustin (age 11) came to camp craving love and affection and to have fun. He learned so much
about God through the Arts and Crafts and during group sessions and chapel time. Most importantly,
he learned a lot through the Scriptures. Our camp theme was taken from Matthew 22:37: Jesus said,
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Love Him with all your mind.”
Dustin was able to quote this verse from memory.
He was interested in learning about the Bible and about who God is. He received a
LifeLight Bible, which he took home, and which will help him in his spiritual growth.

2007 Golf Tournament a Success!

In spite of the cool, misty day, seventy-four enthusiastic golfers showed up for the 2007 LifeLight Ministries Golf Tournament in Steinbach on September 18. Inner City Youth Alive earned twenty-one Bibles with a special game at one of the holes, a Bible for each first shot that went onto the green. After a scrumptious meal, some ministry highlights were shared, followed by the distribution of prizes.
One lucky golfer received a certificate from Powerland Computers for a weekend at Wilderness Edge in Pinawa. Tower Engineering Group donated a registration prize—four box seats for the hockey game the next evening. All the participants had the opportunity to choose a prize from the wide selection available. Each one also received a copy of The Message LifeLight New Testament.
About $11,000 was raised, which will be used to get the Lion Graphic Bible to the people of Russia in their language. David Loewen of Kingdom Ventures, who spent several years in Russia, says, “A Russian Graphic Bible is important. It is in keeping with many Russian people’s visual approach to learning, as they read pictures like we read words.” Lena Hamm is working on the translation of this Bible and hopes to have it completed by the end of the year.
Thank you to all the sponsors, golfers and other contributors who helped make this event a success.

ANNOUNCING: New Arrival!

Caroline Loewen

The Message LifeLight, the Bible in contemporary language, is now here! LifeLight Ministries is delighted that their shipment of the long-awaited New Testament written in colloquial, contemporary language has arrived and will be going into hotels shortly.
The Message is copyrighted by Eugene Peterson, who did this translation as a working pastor. His earlier vocation was a seminary professor, so he is familiar with the Hebrew and Greek biblical languages. His aim was to “get the words of the Bible into heads and hearts, getting the message lived.” He has succeeded in “getting the language of the Bible into the language of today.”
Mr. Peterson wants us to consider The Message a reading Bible, written in words that we use “to gossip and tell stories, give directions, and do business, sing songs and talk to our children.” Here is an example from John 4:9, where Jesus asks a Samaritan woman for a drink: Jews in those days wouldn’t be caught dead talking to Samaritans. Another quote from the last chapter in the Bible, reads, He who testifies to all these things says it again: “I’m on my way! I’ll be here soon.” Yes! Come, Master Jesus (Revelation 22).
The Message LifeLight (#01LLM) is available from LifeLight Ministries for a donation of $5.00.

God's Word a Compass

Ian Croatto

When I started working at Teen Challenge, I heard about LifeLight Ministries through Greg Armstrong. I am also a board member at Charleswood Gospel Temple, where we use the New Believer’s Bible in the pews. The pastor will say, “If you don’t have a Bible, turn to page so and so in the Bible in front of you.” This makes it so simple for people to find the verses.

In 2 Kings 22, Josiah, at age eight, is asked to rule, and when he’s eighteen he sends men to the temple to collect money and make sure people pay. One of the men runs back and says, “They gave me the book of the law.” Josiah reads it, then tears his robes and falls down because he sees how far off course he and his people have gone. With the compass (God’s Word) in his hand, he was able to turn the nation around, and they became obedient to the Lord, destroyed all their idols and got back on track.

That is like the relationship Teen Challenge has with LifeLight. They allow us to put the compass in the hands of the men. God’s Word and His voice come alive, the men realize that they have been worshiping false gods, and slowly they are healed, bit by bit, as God speaks to them.

I have the best career in the world—I see God’s power and might as he works in the hearts of men!

Ian is the Director of Training Phase at Teen Challenge in Winnipeg.

Healing Through Counselling

Isabelle Fiola

I had a very abusive childhood, with constant criticism. I was sixteen when I heard the words “I love you” for the first time—from a street gang leader, whom I married. I was a battered wife, married to an addict, and soon became a binge drinker. Eventually I left, together with my two children.

It didn’t take long before I remarried, but because I didn’t know what love was and how to love, I soon faced another divorce. After some time I started to work at a shelter for battered women, and it was during my time there that the Lord called me into ministry. There was still so much I needed to overcome in my personality. The healing took a few years, but He put me to work immediately. I opened a safe house, Serenity House, in Winnipeg for people who are recovering from addictions and abuses of all type. After a few years we moved Serenity House to Grand Falls, where I conduct healing services and where people come for counselling and retreats.

During our services we use the Life Recovery and Serenity Bibles. The children like the Graphic Bible. A ten-year-old boy, with ADHD, was excited to be able to read this Bible because it created a movie in his mind and kept his interest.

Empowering Women

Shon McLaren works with Inner City Women’s Ministries (ICWM) in Winnipeg. Two of the ICWM volunteers shared at the brunch:

Marilyn: I worked with Shon for a while but then stepped down. In January I went back to help her out and realized I missed the women, so now I’m back working at the Remand Centre. Recently the women started asking for Bibles for their families. I hope to give them easy-to-read Bibles for their children.

Cheryl: The Lord caught me in a very bad situation, but He has changed me. I met Shon and Marilyn at the Remand Centre. I am an addict, and ICWM has helped me a lot with my addictions. I was an alcoholic, but the Lord set me free from that on January 28. He is still working on some other issues. If it weren’t for Shon and Marilyn I wouldn’t be here; the Lord brought them into my life for a reason. Free on the Inside is one of the Bibles Shon gave me at the Remand Centre, and I am now using it to minister to other women. Many women there don’t know how to read, so I’m helping them.

Thank You from CEF

Virginia Dyck

Thank you to everyone involved in LifeLight Ministries, making it possible for Child Evangelism Fellowship to receive Bibles. We use the Bibles in schools in the Discovery Time program, as well as in our five-day club programs and Good News clubs during the summer. We especially like to give them to young Christians who don’t have Bibles of their own.

Just a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to give a New Testament to a neighbour friend who did not have a Bible and wanted one. She insisted that she was going to pay for it! I accepted her donation because I felt she would value it more if she gave something.

LifeLight strengthens partnership with IBS

STEINBACH, MBCanadian LifeLight Ministries is strengthening its long-time working relationship with International Bible Society (IBS), based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The agreement signed in February firmly establishes LifeLight as the Canadian distribution agent for the large international Bible distributor. While LifeLight has had an ongoing association with IBS for ten years in a ministry capacity, the new agreement makes the relationship official, says LifeLight president Raymond Dueck. LifeLight already had access to the full catalogue offered by IBS but will now be ordering in larger volumes and at a lower price.

IBS is also pleased. “At the core of our ministries’ heart's is the desire to distribute God’s Word and Scripture tools to more people so that they might have the opportunity to become disciples of Jesus Christ— growing, maturing and sharing their faith with others,” says IBS director Robert Swales. “I am so pleased we have this special ministry relationship with LifeLight Ministries. May God’s kingdom grow and be enhanced through our combined efforts of Scripture distribution!”

Bolstered by the distribution agreement with IBS, LifeLight plans to set up more distribution centres across Canada. “We aim to have representation in every major city in Canada over the next five years,” says Dueck. Currently, LifeLight has representatives in Manitoba, British Columbia, Ontario, Saskatchewan and the Maritimes.

LifeLight is a not-for profit ministry, inspired by International Bible Givers in the U.S., which distributes free Bibles. “We give away Scriptures as God provides funds, “says Dueck. Specific Bible funds are set up to cater to particular areas of need or to provide ministries with a bank of Scriptures to draw on. Bibles are made available from the fund as donations enable their purchase from suppliers. LifeLight holds a number of ministry accounts, one of which is devoted to providing Scriptures for prisons.

In March 2007, the nearly 200-year-old IBS merged with Send the Light of England, one of the world’s largest distributors of Christian literature. This combination of organizations brings together “core competencies of Bible translation, Bible and Christian book publishing and global distribution into one of the largest and most far-reaching Christian literature agencies in the world.”

Men of Integrity Bible

T. B. accepted Christ as his personal Savior on August 29, 2005 at the Woodstock Chapel. At that time volunteer chaplain Doug gave him a "Men of Integrity" Bible. On December 12th, 2006 we received this e-mail from Tom.
God Bless and Hi!
A while ago I used to drive a truck for a long distance carrier. I once stopped by the chapel at the 230 exit. I am not sure if I remember his name correctly, but I think it was Gord (Doug) whom I met at that time. I got the "Men of Integrity" book. It is an Old and New Testament as well as a reading for each day of the year based on some real life situations reflecting life today. I really liked it. I was trying to make it a goal to keep reading from day to day until I read the entire Bible in the company truck, and the truck was stolen. So was my "Men of Integrity" Bible.
No.... Can you tell me how can I get it again? I really liked it because of the readings I mentioned, as well as I liked it because it is in English. English is my second language. Bottom line is I am not very happy to learn it was stolen along with my truck. My life I think is too busy to make a trip to Woodstock to get it. But I really would like to get the "Men of Integrity" Bible again.
Another Bible immediately was sent to Tom and this was his hand written response.
Len! Thank you for responding so quickly, and for sending me the "Men of Integrity" Bible.I am so happy to have it again. It is good to know that in this crazy world there are still people who care. For 6 months I used to drive long distance in Canada and the USA. It was a very lonely lifestyle and it is great to know that at the 230 Truck Plaza there is a chapel and good people who can give courage to someone like me. I would like to give some courage to you also (enclosed was a financial gift) so you know what you do for others is great. I appreciate what you do.

The Word walks down trapper’s trail

The Word walks down many of the trapper’s trails in Northern Manitoba thanks to the Lifelight Bibles that we handed out at the Trappers Fur Table 2006 in Thompson, Manitoba.  It was encouraging to see the hunger for the word as many of the trapper’s approached the table. Their desire to see the bibles go with them on their trap lines and into their homes was obviously God ordained as they helped themselves to the book table.

For my two helpers and I, it was a privilege to be able to interact with the trappers.  It wasn’t just giving out Bibles that was important but answering peoples  questions and also listening to their stories. Many of them shared their grief and hardships with us.  Some were searching for answers about sickness and death. One person came and told us his testimony about how Jesus healed him physically. He feels so much better now.  “There is lots of life in this body now”, he commented.  In all these circumstances, we could share Jesus Christ and his power to help us to overcome grief, sickness and death. 

Over the two days at the book table we met many people and even renewed some old acquaintances. In all it was a blessing to be there sharing in their lives. They commented that the Bibles were easy to understand, the price is right and some even asked if they could take two of them; one for themselves and one for a friend. We gladly encouraged them to do so and it wasn’t long before the boxes sat empty on the floor.  Let’s continue to pray that they will understand and receive for themselves the gift of eternal life as they read the Lifelight Bibles.  Thanks to Anne M for asking us to help out.  It was a privilege to do so.

LifeLight in Kampala Uganda

you’re probably wondering about the bibles…I gave the bibles that you sent along to David, Maerg & Selam.  They are refugees from Eritrea, Africa.  They have been waiting in Kampala, Uganda for just over 2 years to come to Canada.  David & Maerg are brother and sister and Selam is their niece.  David & Maerg's older sister, Freiwini, attends our church.

They are very sincere christian people.  We were very fortunate to spend 2 meals with them.  They came to our hotel for one meal and then they invited us over to their place for a traditional Ethiopian meal.  It was amazing.  Before the meal started they came around to each of us with a basin & pitcher to wash our hands.  Then they served us Injera which is a kind of bread which they use to dip into a chicken/egg stew.  It was very tasty!!  After that they served us coffee.  They actually roasted the coffee beans right in front of us, ground them up and then made coffee which they served in small cups.  We had the traditional 3 "rounds" which kept us up most of the night!!

Maerg & Selam spoke to us a little bit about their escape to Uganda.  They had been captured in Eritrea and were being held in a truck box.  They were only allowed to get out of the box to go to the bathroom in the woods.  That's how both of them escaped.  They travelled through the desert in Somalia to Uganda.They dressed in muslim head coverings so that they wouldn't be discovered. 

They say that life in Kampala is still very difficult.  Because they are refugees, they are not allowed to work.  They depend completely on Freiwini (their sister in our church) to send them money for their food, clothing and shelter.  They have very very little.  Their faith in God and the fellowship they have with other christians in their church give them hope.  They told us about a revival meeting that their church held in a little village in the courtryside just outside of Kampala.  They preached the way to salvation to them and they said that just over 100 people came to know Jesus.  The villagers were very poor and so the church people gave them the clothing that they could spare.  This was just amazing to me.  These people who have so very little themselves still found something that they could give to those who had even less.  

They were very thrilled to get the bibles.  They were going to bring them to their church and then give them out to people that they were sharing the gospel with.  It's amazing how God brought you to my house just a few days before I was to leave for Africa.  I believe that this was part of God's plan to get those bibles into Africa.  We have an amazing God!

God bless you Uncle Pete & Aunt Caroline as you continue to distribute bibles with  Lifelight Ministries.

Thailand—Hungry for the Scriptures
- Raymond Dueck
Thailand is a country of 60 million people. (The people love their king and queen, who celebrated sixty years on the throne in 2006!). Even though it is the most Buddhist country in the world, there is a real hunger for Scriptures and full freedom of religion in spite of the darkness
of Buddhism.
Fifty percent of Thai Christians became Christians through reading Christian literature.
We traveled to Thailand….

Thanks for your encouragement

Hi Ray

One of your friends at LifeLight gave me a biker bible. I enjoyed the testimonies inside. My wife and I went on a mission trip up into the mountains in Mexico to work with the Otimy Indians. The Mexican pastor that we were working with asked us, one night, if someone had something interesting to read. No one replied, so I offered this biker bible with the interesting testimonies inside. The next morning he was so excited about what he had read and was planing to use the testimonies in a sermon. I said he should just keep the book, because we had many more in Canada.

We have also given away Spanish bibles in Nicaragua and my dad has been reading the bible with a small vocabulary for years. I want to encourage you in your service and in spreading the word of God. Thank-you

Cozumel, Mexico

We first met Jose three years ago when we stopped at his little shop by the side of the road in Cozumel, Mexico. He sells ceramics, t-shirts, blankets, and tablecloths etc. make enough money to support his family. As I was perusing his "stuff" - all of a sudden something jumped out at me - an English New Testament and a Daily Bread devotional. When I picked it up to look at it, Jose told me that it was for me to take. I told him that I already have a Bible. It was was so exciting for both of us as we began to share our common faith in Jesus. He told me the story of his whole family accepting Jesus as Saviour after his brother experienced supernatural healing. Several of his family members suffered from alcohol and drug addictions but were all delivered from these addictions because of their newfound faith. He shared with me how he was having great difficulty in getting Christian literature and more specifically "Bibles" to distribute to the people that he was ministering to.

Last year I was able to deliver New Testaments and children's booklets that I obtained from Canadian LifeLight Ministries to Jose. He was moved to tears! I don't think that he could believe that I actually followed through on my promise to bring them.

This year I took Jose more New Testaments, a Bible for himself, two different kinds of children's books and several Gospels of St. John. He was so happy to see us and was very thankful again for the literature that we brought. He told me that his brother that had been healed, had died after choking on some food, 2 days after I had been to see him last year. So, last year has been a year of grieving for Jose's family - but not as those who have no hope. They have hope of seeing their loved one again in heaven.

God is using Canadian Lifelight Ministries to share God's Good News with the Spanish speaking people of Cozumel, Mexico. Thank you for making your literature affordable and avaliable to people like me to deliver to those who need to hear.

Thai Picture Bible

Dear Raymond,
Thank you for your letter and your interest in partnering with OMF in a Thai literature project. Praise the Lord for your earnest enthusiasm!
Robert's proposal to have an illustrated Genesis / John book is a very good idea and we trust that we will be able to start developing that project early next year. However, it will take a good many months before that book will be print ready and so I am writing to propose another very good project that has been a priority for us for quite some time.
We would like to publish an Old Testament Picture Bible in full-color cartoon-style format. The artwork is based on a similar work by Cook Communications Ministries International and we want to make this book available to the Thai church to strengthen their hands in evangelism. We are excited about this specific project, because:
  • Thai people of all ages, but especially children, find comic-style books irresistible. There are thousands of shops all over the country where you can rent comic books, buy new or used comic books etc. It is a proven format and we have published sections of the OT Picture Bible in the past and they have been received eagerly.
  • Thailand is arguably the most Buddhistic country in the world with centuries of Buddhistic thinking shaping their world view, values and behaviour. There is nothing like the Old Testament history that can challenge that and prepare people's minds for the Gospel. This is how God prepared the Jews to be ready for Jesus and we believe it is still the most effective way today in any culture that needs a lot of ploughing before there can be effective sowing.
  • More than half of the Thai church are first generation Christians. Young Christians will benefit from this very digestible format to quickly get a basic overview of the Bible and prime their appetite for the real thing.
  • Most of the work on this book has already been done: we have acquired the Thai publication rights, purchased the full colour film sets for the art work from the USA and the Thai translation is done. The book can go to press within weeks.
The production cost is estimated as follows:
$3 per book for a print-run of 5,000 copies
$2.48 for 8,000
$2.22 for 10,000
There are many ways in which you can partner with us on this project, like:
  1. Sponsor a number of copies to be made available for free to any ministry / outreach you might specifically want to support. If you do not have a specific ministry in mind we can handle the distribution. We have requests for free evangelistic material all the time. Also, the more copies that are sponsored, the more books we can print and the cheaper the production cost becomes. In this way we can even sell the unsponsored copies for significantly less than would otherwise be possible.
  2. Make a general donation to enable us to get more copies out by special offers like buy one, get one free.
May the Lord lead you as you prayerfully consider this opportunity to invest in this part of His vineyard. We look forward to hear from you soon.
Warm Bangkok greetings

My husband and I are traveling to the Dominican Republic in early February and would like to take down NTs and Bibles with us. I was supposed to contact you in December, but the time got away from me, so I hope it's not too late for you to fill this request.
Based on the size of the scriptures and tracts we took down the last time we went to DR, could we order 12 each of the NTs and Bibles.
I'm not sure the best way for you to get us the material, but we live in Winnipeg and attend Church of the Rock.
Thanks for your assistance with this request.
Blessings for a wonderful 2007.
