Personal Update

God is always faithful to me and my family. Our family in Canada is doing well. In April, Beata and I visited our daughter Ruth and her family in Australia. I was also able to minister in several churches in Melbourne. I thank God for his traveling mercies.

Ministry Update

My ministry with Mission Pentecostal Church is going well. We have more than 70 attending, many of whom are new and have been in Regina for one year. The challenge for them is finding jobs.

Together, Mission Pentecostal Church and Carmel Pentecostal Church are continuing in preparation for the June 28-30 conference in Regina. We will have Canadian and international guests. The theme of the conference is Revival. We expect to have more than 200 attendees and five main speakers: Rev. Jean Bake from Australia, Rev. Erick from USA, Multiply Missionary Doug from Canada; Rev. Bitariho from Canada, Ev Charles from France. Our SKMB Ministries Director Rev. Phil Gunther and ABMB Director Rev. Paul Loewen will bring words of encouragement.

This will be our first conference.  

Global Gospel Advance

The good news of salvation continues to be preached worldwide, through Zoom, in different countries and within Canada. On Sunday, July 26th, Beata, I and Dave Reddekopp went to Gateway Community Church in Canora, SK. to share about the GGA. I preached on the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer. We gained new friends and had wonderful fellowship. 

Our next trip will be to Finland where I am invited to be one of the main speakers at the conference from July 26 to 29. The trip will be via Paris, France, where I will meet with a bishop from Tanzania. On July 20th and 21st we will preach together in Lyon and Paris. We will then travel to Finland. The majority of African diaspora believers feel that the church in Finland came from the one I planted in Zambia.

After the conference, we will leave Finland and go to France to preach in another church in Le

 Havre and Rouen. I will come back to Canada on Aug 7th. There is a plan to visit two SKMB churches in the fall.

Prayer Requests
  • Pray for my health, especially when I travel.
  • Pray that the new Canadians attending MPC might find jobs.
  • Pray for the revival conference June 28-30th.
  • Pray for my mission trip this summer.

A Good Word

The power of wise counsel.
“Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do!”
Proverbs 4:7a NLT
“Who is a wise man?  He who learns of all men.”
The Talmud[i]

There are particular people God allows to cross our path of discipleship, fellow sojourners who change the trajectory of our spiritual formation.  I remember the good word given to me by Haldane Rowan, director of Capernwray Torchbearers Australia.  His good word came to me when I was a twenty-two-year-old student at Capernwray and, at best, a lukewarm disciple of Jesus
