News from Mission Montreal

December 2014 

"For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, to me every knee shall bow, And every tongue shall confess to God." Romans 14:11

One of the joys of ministry in Quebec has been the coming together of so many different languages and cultures. French is the obvious one of course, but then along with our native English we have encountered so many others including: Swahili, Kurundi, Nepalese and Spanish.

Just this past Sunday we had the privilege of dedicating two beautiful children to the Lord whose family came from Ecuador just a few years ago. Nancy, the grandmother of these children, is one of those people who become integral to the growth of a church. Every Sunday she comes, and always with someone new alongside of her!

This past Sunday her Québécois husband, Gérard, attended for the first time and was deeply moved during the service. A spirit of repentance filled the altar and many surrendered their lives to the Lord. We will start a Bible study with Gérard soon.

As we sang this Sunday, in three languages, it struck me what the Lord is doing.  He is bringing people from all over the globe to North America. Yes, they may have come for a better life, for themselves and for their families but the Lord has a bigger plan. We are reaching into their lives with His love and salvation so that they can reach the people that they have the unique ability to minister to. Nancy has just returned home for a month to Ecuador with her son, Milton. Who knows who she will touch while she is there?

The field is the world and the Lord is bringing people together from the far corners of the globe for one last final thrust of harvest. We are so glad to play a part in it. Thanks so much for your support of His work in Quebec and beyond.

May you have a blessed Christmas and New Year!
