It’s Monday Again

Moncton (Joel Gorveatte) hosted its second annual All Nations Sunday yesterday. This year has seen a transformation in the ethnic composition of the church, with the infusion of 100+ people from countries like Nigeria, Brazil, the Philippines, and everywhere in between. The worship leaders were all immigrants, speaking portions in Portuguese, Yoruba, Filipino, Spanish, and Afrikaans; a welcome in French and Swahili; and a prayer in Farsi. They celebrated stories of people impacted by intentional integration into church ministries, small groups, a furniture ministry for newcomers, ESL, and gave testimony of conversion from Islam to Christianity. It all finished with a potluck of global proportions. This special service followed two days of Moncton’s Mosiac Festival where church volunteers served and were able to invite hundreds of people to an upcoming outreach event in an area with a high immigrant population.
He can hit a Tooney two football fields away… 9 out of 10 times! He is one of six Gold Seal Snipers in Canada. James Smith of Saint John First (Graham Perry) was the Keynote Speaker at the annual Beulah Family Camp Men’s B’fast (July 13th on Caton’s Island). Jim will competing in the Police & Fire World Competition in China next month to defend his bronze medal. The Choate Dining Hall Expansion (phase one now fully funded) continues to be a work in progress and will soon provide much needed additional seating (pictured below). Good thing too because a record 114 men gathered to feast on food and The Word.

One of the highlights of Beulah Family Camp includes Mission Moments in the services. This year we heard 10 presentations including one promoting a first-ever opportunity for partnership.

Haiti sending its first missionary is a true maturation of missions! Windel is fully trained with degrees in theology, law, and education. In 2014 he did a 3-month mission to Burkina Faso, after which God confirmed the call to go full-time. Windel and Yolie already speak French and have found that there are many common cultural elements between Haiti and Burkina Faso which will enable them to minister effectively immediately.

An excellent video promoting this partnership may be viewed HERE.

There are 8 churches in Burkina Faso, which Windel will oversee, under the authority of the Ghana Wesleyan Superintendent. They will use the Jesus film, relationship evangelism, and Community Health Evangelism to grow the church, reaching many Muslims with the Gospel.

Sending from Haiti is very cost-effective so the remaining funds needed to get them on the field are within reach. They need one church at $200 per month, 3 individuals at $100, 6 at $50 and 5 people at $25. Their target date is the end of this month.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of Beulah Family Camp (BFC) is the opportunity to connect with friends from around the Atlantic District not often seen throughout the year. However, another emerging trend includes those churches which promote a gathering of all those who are attending. Hillside (Jay Guptill) had more than 50 at BFC this year (pictured above).

The National Board convened by Zoom this week in further preparation for the first National Conference of The Wesleyan Church of Canada (TWCC) which will convene next month just south of Montreal (see below in Upcoming Events). This will be an inspiring time of celebration as vision is cast by our National Superintendent Stephen Elliott.

Some family fun this weekend included hosting the annual Shorey Moore Fishing Derby on the Beulah Wharf. The beautiful young lady on the right caught the only catfish of the night – not bad for a 4.5 year old first-time fisher!

THOTS:

  • I finally waited on God. God is never late. His timing is always for the better. (Jim Smith)
  • Our culture has come to think of solitude as a retreat. Perhaps we have it wrong; it’s actually an advance. Integrating solitude into the rhythm of everyday may move you forward far more powerfully than yet another activity that fractures and burdens your mind and spirit. (Carey Nieuwhof) #retreat2advance
  • Let him who cannot be alone beware of community. He will only do harm to himself and to the community. … But the reverse is also true: Let him who is not in community beware of being alone. (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
