We are back from our vacation and convention attendance in the west. We had a very inspirational vacation and attended a highly informational convention sponsored by the Canadian Council of Christian Charities. We also attended a Sunday morning service at Willingdon Church. It was a very impressive and impacting service. You may want to check out their website at http://www.willingdon.org

Digby (Andrew Maves) had an excellent summer. They fed over 400 at their “Feed Your Family” during scallop days. During the 2-day bike rally that is held in Digby every summer, Andrew led a special service called, “The Blessing of the Bikes” during which two couples accepted Christ. Their average attendance for the summer equaled their average attendance for all of last year and five people were baptized a couple of weeks ago on Sunday night.

Nackawic (Carl and Evelyn Brewer) held their third Well Walk for Sierra Leone on Sunday, September 24. They raised $10,500 — enough money for three wells in Sierra Leone. This brings the total number of wells they have provided to six and we commend the pastors and people for this incredible sense of missionary vision.
Special pastors’ seminar at the Moncton church — Thursday, November 2 — 1:00-4:30 PM. Leading A Changing Church In A Changing Culture with Rev. Phil Stevenson. This special seminar is being provided by the District at no cost to the pastors attending — I’m confident many of you plan to be in attendance on November 2.
Sussex (Neville Gosman) has recently produced advertising spots for the radio — excellent and very creative.
This past Sunday I was at West Head (Perry Ingersoll) for their evening service. The church had 125 and 142 in Sunday School the last two weeks and a week ago Sunday night, they baptized six candidates.
THOT: I’m still not sure if most pastors are aware that their churches are comprised of people they don’t know yet. – Mark Driscoll, Mars Hill Church
