Update from Andrew Friesen

Hello beloved Whyte Ridge Family,

It’s hard to believe that Courtney Joy and I have been married for almost 2 months now! God has done some amazing things in our lives since the beginning of August and we feel incredibly blessed!

  • Our wedding day (Aug 6) was filled with such unspeakable joy! It was stunning weather and filled with such precious memories with close friends and family. Our favourite part was worshiping together and truly sensing that Jesus was honoured and there with us.
  • Praise God for a fruitful time at Mobilizers forum just 3 weeks after our wedding. This is an annual conference where all of Africa Inland Mission Canada’s mobilizers gather for a week of training, prayer, and fellowship. We felt encouraged by the team and were able to learn a LOT from their experience. At the end we set some goals for the next year and everyone was of one mind.
  • We have two young ladies and a couple that are beginning applications for short term service for this upcoming year! Praise God that He is finding people with unique interests to serve Him from sports ministry, to English teaching.
  • Praise God as Courtney Joy and I have been given TWO opportunities to preach in churches in the upcoming months! Neither are churches AIM has had contact with in the past!
  • Praise God for the ways that He has ALREADY been leading Courtney Joy and me into His Word this past month. We have been challenged in our quiet times and are learning how to hear Gods voice as a couple- it is such an honour to serve the LORD and to simply be in His presence together.
  • Please keep praying with us that the LORD of the harvest would bring labourers. We are asking the Lord for four to six full time missionaries, three short termers, and we are looking to increase our inquiry base to thirty in the next year here in Ontario.
  • Praise God for Gary and Kim Lidstone who are two new additions to the Ontario mobilizing team. Pray for them as they are beginning to fundraise in the fall and hope to be fully supported by January. This is a amazing blessing as Ontario is a huge area to cover!! They will work alongside us and Susan Pinkerton (still recovering from surgery) starting in the new year.
  • Please pray, with the increase of contacts here in Ontario, we are mapping out several trips to Ottawa, Windsor, Hamilton, Guelph, and Pickering over the next two months! Pray that we would have endurance.
  • Pray for Courtney Joy and me as we have really begun to lean in to the discernment phase of where God is leading us in Africa. We have had many meaningful conversations, done some research, and are seeking the LORD to guide us forward. We know that God has asked us to walk into the darkest places to make disciples & see His church grow… but where that is we are still discovering together.

Love you all dearly and can’t wait to see you in the new year

Courtney Joy and Andrew Friesen

UPCOMING EVENTS AND CURRENT NEWS:


As we approach Thanksgiving weekend, we are reminded of God’s faithfulness and goodness over this past year.  God has blessed us with financial health in our general fund, exceeding our goals for the Capital Fund and financing two missions trips. We recognize that many of you have been stretched in your giving during this same period, and for this we also give thanks.

Traditionally, at Thanksgiving, our congregation has a special offering to meet needs in our community or around the world. However, this year, there will be no special offering at Thanksgiving.  There is certainly no shortage of needs within Canada and around the world, with recent hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires and flooding.  Some of you may be hearing God’s call to give to such causes from the abundance with which He has blessed you. If you are considering giving to support charitable work in our community or around the world, then we pray that the Lord will lead you to a worthy cause to support. Many well-respected and reputable charitable organizations have options to give directly to their work.  May the Lord bless you as you respond to His call.

Help a new immigrant family from Bolivia: A Bolivian family with three young children (ages 2, 5 & 7 years), living near the city, is in need of the following items (please contact the church office or Pat Janke /204-261-8047 if you are able to help in any way).

Evangelical Fellowship of Canada Updates

Jesus calls his followers to be salt and light to the world (Matthew 5:13-16). We seek to live as His faithful servants and be agents of His transforming presence in our society and the world.

Evangelicals engage in all areas of life as part of our witness, and we want to be obedient to God in the pursuit of justice and care for the vulnerable.   One of the ways we do this is to learn about key issues facing our culture, and think through how biblical principles apply in these areas.

A way to do so is to join the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada‘s email list or to browse through their resource database containing hundreds of topics online.

Baptism

We are planning to have an outdoor baptism in the near future.  If you would like to be baptized please contact the church office.

Anna Gabrielle Major – Born: July 12, 2017, Date of Passing: July 12, 2017

ANNA GABRIELLE MAJOR:  BORN: JUL 12, 2017, DATE OF PASSING: JUL 12, 2017

Listen to Anna’s Celebration and Dedication to God Service here.

Jennifer and Sean, the proud parents of Anna Gabrielle Major, would like to introduce you to their wonderful daughter who is now safe in the arms of her loving Savior, Jesus Christ.

Her name has special meaning. Anna means ‘gracious and giving’ as she was a miraculous gift from God. Gabrielle means ‘woman of God’ and it was always our prayer that her life would glorify the Lord and that she would walk with Him.

Anna was a beautiful baby girl that we looked upon with awe and wonder. She was born on July 12, 2017 at Women’s Hospital, weighing 7lbs 4.3oz and measuring 21.5 inches long. Anna had her mum’s hair color and her daddy’s curls. She had the blue eyes, lips, ears, button nose and chubby cheeks of her mum and she had her daddy’s hands and feet. Anna only knew love, she never knew any sorrow or hurt. She was a much anticipated and desired child whose very existence was much celebrated.

While her arrival came right on time, our precious Anna’s life was limited to the time her mum got to share with her as she carried her in her womb.

Our darling, sweet Anna Gabrielle will continue to be loved and cherished and always remembered by many, including her parents, Sean and Jennifer Major, her grandparents, Jim and Cindy Law, Dolly Major and Les Major, her great-grandma, Audrey Hemminger and many other family and friends.

Anna’s parents would like to thank the many people who have helped through the joys and sorrows of this journey, humbling us with their warmth and care. They would also like to thank Ryan Mason, Pam Mason and Jim and Cindy Law for joining them in as they welcomed Anna into their arms and bid her goodbye with the same breaths.

A celebration and dedication to God of Anna Gabrielle was held at Whyte Ridge Baptist Church at 10:00 a.m. on July 15, 2017 with the interment following at Darlingford Cemetery.

English Garden Picnic

A few of our WRBC women enjoyed a wonderful lunch in the beautiful surroundings of the English Garden at Assiniboine Park. It was time well spent with women of God. Time spent connecting and sharing.

Thank you, Phyllis VanDrunen, for organizing this special time for us.

 

 

 

 

A God Story

Hello church family! I just wanted to let you know what I will be up to this summer. I spent the summers of 2014 and 2016 serving with an organization that works with orphans and abandoned children in Romania, and I was planning on doing that again this summer. Unfortunately, due to a number of reasons, these plans fell through. After spending two full summers with the same children in Romania I had begun to feel like this was my second home, and upon learning that I could not go back this summer I felt lost and confused. To make a long story short, after weeks of looking for jobs, applying for jobs, and emailing back and forth to a number of different children’s ministries around the world, God made it clear to me that I need to go and serve the needy, orphaned, and abandoned children in Mexico. I am leaving on July 18th to serve at a children’s home/orphanage in Reynosa, Mexico for four weeks. I will be doing many things including assisting with building/renovation projects, assisting with running a VBS for the kids, and of course spending time playing with the kids. I would really appreciate your prayers as I prepare for this adventure – that I would be a vessel of Jesus’ love for these beautiful kids. In recent weeks there has been a lot of drug-related violence within and around the city of Reynosa, Mexico, so prayer for peace, health, and safety for myself, the full-time missionaries and staff members, and all the children would also be appreciated. I look forward to updating you upon my return at the end of August. Thank you for your prayers and support! If you have any questions about what I will be up to in Mexico, I would love to talk to you about it!
God bless,
Alex Warburton

Naomi House Donation

This spring women attending the women’s breakfast at WRBC on April 26 contributed well over $100. to a silver collection for Naomi House. This money was used to purchase personal items for women who will be staying there. Fifteen zippered bags were filled with deodorant,
toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, soap, Kleenex, napkins, emory boards, candy and bandaids.
Naomi House is a church-based ministry (City Church) providing a transitional home for newly arriving refugees. It provides safe temporary housing, initial settlement services and follow-up support. Our desire was to provide these supplies to bless the women who will be staying there. The Naomi House representative was thrilled to receive the bags!
