Since 2010, Whyte Ridge Baptist has participated in several mission trips to West Bengal in Northeast India, working in partnership with Far Corners Ministry. Far Corners is an organization that exists to support the growing Church in northeast India by training pastors and lay leaders, building churches and helping the poor. God is working in His church in India. Many people are coming to know Christ!
2012 Team members taught at several conferences, helping to provide Biblical training to rural pastors and leaders and preached in local churches. They also assisted in the building of several church structures and helped distribute some basic necessities (such as blankets, mosquito netting, and school supplies) to churches, orphanages, and families. The Whyte Ridge church family was involved here at home by fundraising to help provide these things. Children from our church also sent gifts which were distributed to children in the orphanages and churches visited.
Team members where: Karen Dyck, Shelly Cumming, Christine Janzen, Steve Morris, Raj Manuel, Kevin Klassen. Team Training and support: Heather Warkentin, Mike Woolman, Azhar Ladlin.
Praise God for what He is doing in West Bengal! We give thanks for the opportunity to connect with brothers and sisters in India, and pray He will continue to bring many more to Himself. May He also continue to impress the nations upon the hearts of our church family here at WRBC.
