Advent Conspiracy = TEN WELLS!!

    This Christmas was unique at Evangel for several reasons:   1)  We actually followed the Advent theme   Tradition is outside-the-box for us.  The usual is unusual.  So we ventured out into the unknown and took a shot at what “real” churches do at Christmas: Advent.     Advent simply entails the arrival of a noteworthy individual.  Obviously, that person is Jesus coming into the world that fateful day over 2000 years ago.  The special significance for us,…

Oh boy – I’m dreaming about charitable giving.

Had this crazy dream two weeks ago (been dreaming a lot lately).    SCENE ONE   It’s Sunday afternoon, and I’m reeling from a $900 offering.  And not reeling in a delight, but in panic, for those of you still in the dark ages of paltry giving :).  When you consider that Evangel’s weekly budget (missions, staff, utilities, ministry, buildings) is about $12,000 per week, you can understand the sinking feeling I have in my gut.   SCENE TWO   Scene two…

YES-ware! Going to Kwadacha, BC

A couple months ago a few guys from Evangel, on a skidoo trip, came up with an idea to reach out to the little First Nations community of Kwadacha, one of the most isolated and repressed communities in our province.  This is the story of how that happened.  Jesus willing, on March 13-15 they will lead a team, accompanied by rap artist Fresh IE, for a weekend outreach. Me, along with a couple buddies,recently went for a skidoo ride overnight and ended…

From India back to FSJ

We have so much potential to grow, it's unreal. For the first day that I was in India, we went through orientation. The full day was spent with Steve Stewart, who was leading our team. Orientation sounds pretty lame, especially if you've ever worked in the oil patch where that word basically means that you'll be wasting an hour in front of a lame safety movie. Not so in this case. It started with Steve saying that the goal wasn't for…

Mexico Blog #6 – Two Great Men

Of all the pictures we snapped over the week in Vicente Gurerro, this one ranks among my favourite because of the two central subjects of the photo:   Asher Motola A Jewish guy who got saved during the Jesus movement in Mexico City, a teacher by trader, and missionary by calling.   For the last few decades he and his wife Suzanne have given their lives to the extension of the Kingdom and spread of the Gospel into Mexico.  He…
