Time to Honour

GWAs our friend’s last days of work were completed, no one celebrated all the years of service given,” writes missionary Ruth Anna Dana.

“Sadly, honouring the older members happens less, and people are not taking time for listening to them speak wisdom.”

In another of our news stories, missionary Arlyn VanEnns honours the memory of his friend George Wanderingspirit (pictured here) and writes: “George and Mary were the first believers baptized in the entire history of their district.”

In his growing up years Trevor Flett saw how alcohol brought fear and harm to his family. He also saw how the Gospel could change things! He received Christ as a youngster, but walked away from God as a teen. Married to Sherry in 1992, they didn’t follow Christ until after the birth of their third child. They were baptized in 2010, and the Lord helps them grow in their faith.

Becky Kew has worked around Sandy Bay and Amaranth, Manitoba, with First Nations people for many years. She talks about how she trusts the Lord for everything, and how He answered her prayer by providing a building that she uses as a meeting place for children, youth and adults.

David Kanakakeesic was raised in Weagamow, Ontario. His parents became Christians when he was a young child, but David didn’t begin his relationship with Christ until he was 21. With a desire to help struggling people in his and neighboring communities, he left home to pursue education in social work and pastoral care. Returning to Weagamow, David tells how he has depended on the Lord to serve his clients well, and sees the importance of Gospel outreach.

Natasha Apetawakeesic grew up in a pastor’s home, but as a teen walked away from the Lord. After moving to Weagamow, Ontario, and getting married, she realized that she could not live her life without the Lord.
