Dare to Prepare

I was honoured to speak and take part in Riverwood Church's youth retreat recently, and was so encourage to see the young people respond to God. What a great group, with great pastors and leaders, not to mention fantastic young people! 

Our theme for the weekend was to "Dare to Prepare,"  a topic focused on getting serious about our relationship with God. Twelve young people gave their life to Jesus this weekend and 55 recommitted and made a decision to get back on track with God. Fifteen Bibles where given out for young people who want an easy to read LifeLight scripture with helpful tips and reading plans. So amazing to see young people lining up to get a Bible. One young man was going through some serious struggles in life, and was broken by God, letting Jesus back in to his life and realizing that God has a plan and purpose for his life. 

We at LifeLight are so blessed to be a part of God's plan. Leaders prayed with their youth and it was a beautiful picture of the restoration process that only God can perform. Keep this group in your prayers as God continues His loving work!

The Power of the Word

This weekend I had the honour and privilege to speak to the patrons at Siliom Mission. 

As I shared about how the word of God can change our lives and change our hearts form being as hard as a rock to fertile soil, using the parable of sower and the seeds from Matthew 13, a women in front of me was obviously moved and wanted to talk immediately after. As I listened to her story my heart broke as I heard her need for God. We prayed together and she now has God in her life. I know that it will change everything. I left her with a complete Bible which she immediately started to read. Her favourite passage was one filled with hope that God is with us, that He will never forsake us, and that Jesus will be by our side no matter where we go. We all need to be reminded of that.
I cannot go into  the specific details of her needs, but would ask that you pray for her. With God working with her, nothing is impossible.

Please read the passage below. God wants all our hearts to fertile ground for his seed to grow and change our lives.

"Listen! A farmer went out to plant some seeds. 4 As he scattered them across his field, some seeds fell on a footpath, and the birds came and ate them. 5 Other seeds fell on shallow soil with underlying rock. The seeds sprouted quickly because the soil was shallow. 6 But the plants soon wilted under the hot sun, and since they didn't have deep roots, they died. 7 Other seeds fell among thorns that grew up and choked out the tender plants. 8 Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted! 9 Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand."

I pray that we all have "ears to hear"

Soup Bus Downtown

Our Care Group prepared big pots of beef barley soup and coffee and took the church bus downtown.  We parked in front of the Booth Centre and offered free soup and coffee to people coming by.  Those who promised to read the "Free Bible" got a LifeLight New Testament.  Some 40 people took the New Testament. Some 100 delicious soup meals were served.  Quite a few people said this was the best beef barley soup they had ever had. All were very appreciative.

"and a little child will lead them..." Isaiah 11:6

We celebrated a very special Thanksgiving Day by inviting some of our neighbours over for afternoon dessert. We enjoyed homemade apple crisp and ice-cream and then headed to the park to enjoy the beautiful Fall day. We played games together and harvested some produce from our community garden. Our fun was so contagious, that we returned home with more kids than we took to the park. The children commented how happy and excited they felt, and how much they enjoyed our time together.

As the weather has gotten colder and the days shorter, we have fallen into the rhythm of a new season. We joyfully received our shipment of teen Bibles from LifeLight, a ministry dedicated to sharing God's Word through innovative Bibles. The arrival of the Bibles and the precious visit we shared with the ministry's reps so inspired our kids that they asked if they could start a kids' Bible study of their own. When we asked them when they wanted to start they responded, "Today!" It made me think how we truly need to have the faith of a child to enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3-4.

Our kids collected all the kids' Bibles they have accumulated over the years and brought them out to the living room. They even put LifeLight wristbands on each Bible as a gift for their friends. At 4pm on the same day we received our Bible shipment, the children knocked on a few doors and boldly invited their friends to come over to study the Bible with them. Two children came with the permission of their parents, including a little girl who prayed for salvation in our backyard over Easter.

In our living room the children sat and took turns reading Matthew 2. A long awaited moment had arrived in our house, we were now beginning to make disciples! The children ate popcorn as they shared with one another what they liked best about what they read. Later they watched a short animated DVD on the life and ministry of Jesus and then they all played video games! We could never have planned a more natural afternoon, it was all the working of the Holy Spirit. Only a few short weeks ago, the children who regularly come to our house to play said they wished they could start some kind of club. Our son Caleb asked his friend how he liked the Bible study and his friend responded positively. Caleb then invited his friend to come over next Wednesday at 4pm to continue studying the Bible.

Ten teens have signed up for the weekly Bible study that Robb will be leading on Wednesday evenings. We are grateful for each of these lives and pray that God's Word will transform them all, and many more.  We are thankful that the very first Bible study lead by a member of our MoveIn team was started and lead by our 10 and 8 year olds. A little child will lead them indeed!

Please continue to pray for the work that God is doing in and through our family and team here in Oshawa. Please also continue to pray for our work on the staff team of MoveIn, as we mobilize teams of regular Christians to move in among the unreached, urban poor and make reproducing disciples.

Youth Respond to Giving away Bibles

I had the privilege of speaking at Calvary Temples youth retreat this fall. What a great group  of young people and youth leaders!

Jared, the leader of their youth group wanted to challenge the young people to look past their own comfort zone and church  and focus on bringing new people into the group.

In the weekend sessions we talked about how We need to follow Jesus, that he has called us despite our imperfection and that he not only loves us, but likes us. When asked If they wanted to get to know God better, 95% put up their hands, and then when challenged to give a Bible to someone they knew needed it, 10  Bibles where handed out with the promise that they would go to someone who needed the hope that is found inside! 

I know that God is going to do great things threw these young people at CT who are determined to make a difference for Jesus!

Muslim book store

We had a delicious dinner at a west African restaurant. Next door was a Muslim book store.

I had 3 Find God NTs with me. I gave one to the lady at the laundromat and I meant to leave one with the imam at the bookstore. When I went in and offered it to him he was glad to get it. His friend also wanted one. They started telling me about how Jesus had not died and how he was coming back to rule the world in righteousness.
I kept telling him to read all about it in the book I had given him. He wanted to know who had written the book and I assured him that it was written by God. They both assured me that they would read the book I had given them, and then they gave me an English copy of the Koran.

Pray that God will speak to them through this.
