Psalm 126:2

May 2015

OH CANADA!
Sharing | Christ | Together

Romans 1:4-6
"...Jesus Christ, our LORD, through
whom we have received grace and
apostleship to bring about the
obedience of faith among all the
Gentiles for His name's sake,
among whom you also are the
called of Jesus Christ"

Please pray
For the Canadian people. The
spiritual atmosphere in Canada is a
lot like Europe, and people are
often cold toward the Gospel. Pray
that God's Spirit moves through the
people of Canada.
God would help us to be patient, as
the work of building a successful
school of ministry takes time.

Where God has brought us:


We are excited to introduce a new chapter in our lives as we prepare
to go to Canada! As many of you know, we moved back to the States
after almost three years of ministry in Israel. We have been back for
five years! Matthew got his contracting license and has worked with

Christian school. We have been involved with church ministry: teaching
much about God, His faithfulness and His Word. We cannot believe

we would love (because "perfect

Psalm 126:2

May 2015

What is to come:
The last year has brought with it a new conviction that the Lord is
moving us in a different direction, Deborah back into teaching and
Matthew into full-time ministry. We have been asked to move to Airdrie,
Alberta (right outside of Calgary) to participate in a young Calvary
church plant and help start a school of ministry.
Deborah plans to work for a Christian school, and Matthew will serve

Hello, Rocky

with the church. A huge need exists for Christian ministry in Canada.
35 million people live in Canada, and the attitude toward Christianity
can be ambivalent, at best. However, a number of churches are
interested in participating in a school of ministry but feel God hasn't
provided the right person to run it. Matthew's ministry would focus on
building up passionate and solid Bible teachers and sending them to
plant churches in other parts of Canada. Matthew's position will not be
paid, so our goal is to raise support for the first two years. After that,
we will seek God for His provision for the school of ministry.
We believe that God has led us to these ministries. Will you pray that
God supplies all our needs, and will you ask God if He would have you
partner with us? We would love to hear from you and would be
delighted to answer any questions you may have!
