We’re Ottawa bound! This trip is more exciting than vacationing on beaches or theme parks -we’re on a mission.
“Turn the hearts of the father’s to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, and all towards Jesus”. We want to spread this message of Malachi Man across our nation -all the way to Ottawa.
Dad had originally planned for a quiet “slipping-out-of-town” departure. But when you are friends with Chris Kutyn, such uneventful departures may not occur! Chris declared an official send off barbecue that he hoped would bring out around 200 people. Dad laughed, thinking 100 would be a big crowd. However, we decided to go for it, and before long invitations were being sent out, posters were appearing in different churches, and food was being bought. We had all been looking forward to this barbecue, and finally the day arrived.
We were greatly blessed to see well over 200 of our friends gathered in one place. Amazing!
The night was full of joy, worship, and vision. The spirit of unity and love was awesome. The climax of the evening was when everybody gathered around my family and I -as well as our trailer -and prayed a commissioning prayer over us and our trip. Talk about feeling blessed! Then there was a powerful moment when everybody prayed aloud simultaneously for the nation of Canada.There was at least ten different churches from the Valley represented, as well as people from out of town, out of province, and even out of country! It was a beautiful picture of the Bride of Christ joining together.
And now, here we are, four days later. Our trailer is being packed and we are beginning the countdown -four more days until we leave and head to Ottawa! Thank you to everybody who helped in the barbecue and all who attended it. We were and are greatly blessed because of you! Please continue to pray for us and this upcoming trip.
God bless you all!
