Grey Cup Ministry Report
The Grey Cup ministry team would like to express our heartfelt thanks for interceding on our behalf and for the people of Ottawa! Thank you to the individuals and congregations (Pineland Baptist, Harvest Bible Ottawa, London & Brantford, Almonte Baptist, Trinity Baptist and Bethsaida Baptist) whose prayers were essential to this work. An outreach like this is fraught with potential hiccups but God went before us in every little detail.
As you know, much of Canada is “hard ground”, yet we have confidence in God who raises the dead! We walk by faith, knowing the Holy Spirit is at work drawing men and women to Himself through the proclamation of the word. God gave us great freedom to that end, as several thousand gospel tracts were distributed and tens of thousands heard Jesus Christ being preached in the open air.
Highlights were two personal conversations that I will not soon forget. Eva, a muslim lady who received a gospel of John and spoke with Zoe for nearly an hour despite the cold and flurries. Omar is the owner of Jericho restaurant where we ate on Sunday. A talented artist and friendly man who welcomed a conversation about God, sin, and the righteousness of Christ by faith.
We were all encouraged by the hours of fellowship and reminded of the urgency of outreach at home here in Canada. Personally, I came away with a deeper appreciation for the support of my local church and for the gift of hospitality.
Love in Christ,
