Praying for Ministry Partners


How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?  And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”                                                             
Romans 10:14-15


When I was 16 years of age, I first felt God calling me into missionary service.  Although I greatly struggled with that calling initially, while attending university, I committed my life to God and agreed to follow His call on my life wherever it may lead.  Since then, that calling has taken me on quite the journey over the last 20 years.

Trust

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Picking up a Patient in Botswana


My first placement with MAF was  flying medevacs in Botswana. Since we were on 24-hour standby, it wasn’t uncommon to get a call at one in the morning to go and pick up a patient. One of the most difficult flights I had there started out this way.

Christmas Bells

Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.  For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord.  And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”.
Luke 2:10-14


It’s that season again: Christmas trees are being decorated and houses all along the street are being lit up.  All your favourite Christmas carols are being sung in churches and heard on the radio.

Patience

Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord.  See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.
James 5:7



Early in July I was looking out the window of the house we rent for the summer in Flin Flon.  If you’ve ever been to Flin Flon, you would know that the defining feature of the town is the very large smoke stack of the mine, that is located just outside the city.  When flying into Flin Flon you can see the tall, grey cement tower from miles away, rising high above the horizon, the blinking lights on top acting like a beacon, letting you know you’re almost home at the end of a long, summers day.  However, that day, as I looked out the window, the top of the smoke stack was nowhere to be found.  Instead, it was lost in clouds that descended halfway down the tower.
