Building Committee Prayer Update – February 6, 2017

As you know, the Building Committee has been working diligently to find a resolution for retention pond / drainage into Lake Muir.

We are reaching out to LaFarge and Fort Whyte Alive to seek an audience with them, with hopes of a favourable resolution to the drainage issue. We are asking you to lift this matter in prayer before the Lord. We are praying that the decision makers at both LaFarge and Fort Whyte will be open to receiving the various supporting documents that we have provided them, that they will be open to working with us, and that they will decide to allow drainage into Lake Muir.

We thank you for your continued prayers as you uphold this particular matter before the Lord.”

Thank you,

Azhar Laldin

Team India Update – November 21, 2016

Greetings to our church family;

We have completed the first two parts of what I call the trilogy of our mission. Part one was the conference in Siliguri which went very well. We stayed at a Christian conference centre along with the participants. For three days (Monday – Wednesday) we taught, fellowshipped, and worshipped together. We made some good friends and felt very privileged and blessed. Each of us from the team taught three sessions (one per day) of 50 minutes of content… with translation they were 90 minutes!

We felt well received and in turn learned a lot from these pastors, leaders, and women.

Part two was a time of learning more about the various ministries and projects that Far Corners Ministries has been in partnership with a local foundation led by Shakti…… it was so interesting to learn how they are making such a difference in some local villages with providing training and employment opportunities for people that are so poor and in need of help. They are doing an amazing job helping people fish rather than just giving them fish! We saw a weaving operation in process where women are given employment weaving special scarves and carpets. We saw a poultry operation where they are buying and feeding out chicks for broilers. They are also In the process purchasing sewing machines so women can be taught to be tailors… to sew their own clothing and for others also. There is a small school for young children and a few other initiatives.

A couple of us did some training with a great group of young adults that meet 2 Saturdays per month to be disciples and trained for ministry. We enjoyed and participated in a wonderful worship service on Sunday morning and then the women had a meaningful time of sharing with the women after the service. It is so inspiring to see what God is doing through the work done here in north east West Bengal.

We have also been so impressed with the emphasis on leadership training and especially discipling young men and women for future pastors. They believe if they train up 100 young people, 10 will become pastors.

We have grown to love our translators… especially Biplab, a pastor from Siliguri who has been travelling with us along with Shakti. Their hearts are so full for reaching the lost people of West Bengal. They say there are .06 Christians in the 100,000,000 population of Bengalese. Shiny, who has done much of the women’s translating, does a wonderful job connecting with the women and provides inspirational commentary at the end of each session.

Our challenges are mostly around food. We also find the pace a bit gruelling. We are busy with very little time on our own to recharge. The “Indian stretch time” means we spend a lot of time waiting… this feels quite unproductive to us North Americans!

Please continue to pray for us as we move into the last two days of our second conference as well as for our health and strength to finish well.

Thanks so much… knowing you are praying is very encouraging!

On behalf of Team India 2016,
Bob & Dale Fast

Team India Update – November 15, 2016

picture1

 

Greetings from India!

We left Canada on a warm November day, surrounded by a circle of friends who prayed for our safety. We flew to Toronto where we boarded our flight to Delhi, India. Unfortunately, our first airplane had mechanical difficulties and we had to de-plane and re-board another aircraft. After a three-hour delay, we were safely in the air. Our flight to Delhi was almost 14 hours. It was a very full flight and we didn’t get much sleep. We were so thankful to land and get to our hotel. It took us two hours to get through customs, retrieve our baggage, and exit the airport. We stayed overnight at a hotel quite close to the airport.

15056357_10154773437409073_6546478423190634034_n

The next morning, we returned to the airport and boarded another airplane for the trip to Bagdogra airport. We were able to see the majestic Himalayas as we drew closer to our destination. Shakti met us at the airport and brought us to the Siliguri Christian Centre. He gave us a tour of this large facility where we would spend the next six days.

On Sunday, we attended an amazing worship service at Jalpaiguri Baptist Church. The church greeted us warmly with flower necklaces. They fondly remember all the previous team members from Whyte Ridge Baptist Church and enquired about each one. We were so humbled to be asked to pray for various members of the congregation who came forward with concerns. Doug gave a message on unity. Later that evening, our retreat participants began arriving. They came by train and bus.

On Monday morning, we began our first retreat. Each team member has a teaching slot every day lasting an hour and a half. We have a translator for the women – Shini – and another for the men – Biplap. They are excellent translators and often add their own flavour to what we say. As I write this, we have nearly completed two full days of retreat.

We are enjoying meeting many new friends, sharing what we have prepared, trying new foods, and coming closer as a team. We are learning to eat and enjoy new foods including something called daal and a vegetable called Bitter Gourd. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? We have also learned that Andrew is the most likely to be mistaken for an Indian; someone even said that he looks like a Punjabi rap star. We can’t quite figure out how he passes as Indian with those blue eyes.

We so need your prayers for us each day. There are things that we struggle with including sleep, unfamiliar food, and discouragement . Many of you may have heard on the news about the currency crisis here in India. The government decided to eliminate the 1000 rupee notes and are replacing the 500 rupee notes with a newer version. They are also adding a 2000 rupee note. Unfortunately, the new notes have not reached the part of the country that we are in. It is a concern because our accommodations and drivers need to be paid in cash. Shakti also needs to reimburse the pastors for their travel. Please pray that God provides the money we need in a miraculous way.

This evening we had the privilege of enjoying some of the culture of India as many of the different groups at the conference shared a dance or a song. It is a special blessing to see how they worship in this way.

Wednesday was our last day of the first retreat. It was sad to see the pastors and women depart as we made many special connections with them. God moved through each of us on the team as we poured our hearts out in the teaching sessions. It was a humbling and learning experience as we depended on God to speak through us each day. Our prayer is that God uses the teaching from our sessions to transform these leaders and their churches over the coming years.
On Thursday we will be taking an early train to Alipurduar at 6:45am. We are looking forward to experiencing transportation as the people of India do on a daily basis. It should be a scenic ride through the beautiful rural countryside of West Bengal.

RSVP Today – A New Season of Growth: The ‘Main Event’

“As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to Him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” – 1 Peter 2:4-5

As we have been reminded in Pastor Terry’s sermons over this past month, God is building up a people – a spiritual house of Christ-followers who will honour Jesus with genuine worship and who will grow in an honest longing to honour Him with our lives.

And in every season, God continues to build His people. In every season, He faithfully guides us and provides for us, using various means and circumstances to challenge us in our faith, to demonstrate His love, and to show us the power of His hand, so that we might love Him more deeply, trust Him more fully and serve His Kingdom more effectively.

In this season, God has been shaping us through a process of seeking His will together. We declared in January 2016 that this was to be a year of discernment, a year in which we would intentionally inquire of the Lord as to how He would have us glorify Him with the property on McGillivray Boulevard that He gave to us a number of years ago.

And so this has been a season of prayer, discussion and faith-stretching. And now, ten months later, we continue on in this process of honest discernment. We know that God could still lead us in any direction on this journey, but it has seemed to us that He is leading us in the direction of building a new church building on that McGillivray property. And that belief has now taken us into a Capital Funds Campaign that I believe God will use to continue to stretch our faith and increase our trust and joy in Him.

The finale of this campaign is on Sunday, November 6th. But our desire is to have a special gathering even before this campaign is over so that we might publicly proclaim what God has blessed us with so far (spiritually, relationally and financially) and also so we can worship Him together, declaring that we will celebrate the consistency of His faithfulness no matter where He leads us and regardless of what the monetary result of the campaign will be.

This special gathering is called the Main Event and will be held on Saturday, October 29th at 6:30 pm. It will take place at Soul Sanctuary (2050 Chevrier Boulevard) and promises to be a FUN and MEANINGFUL evening of worship, special music, compelling sharing and fabulous dessert! There will also be nursery childcare for children up to 2 years as well as separate programming provided for children ages 2 – 9 years (with lots of fun snacks and DILL THE CLOWN!!)

(REGISTER FOR THE EVENT BELOW)

Please let us know if you are able to attend the Main Event on October 29th by clicking here. We desire for this event to be packed so that we might worship our God TOGETHER, celebrate His faithfulness TOGETHER, and enjoy the fellowship of our faith community TOGETHER.

At the heart of everything, we want this evening to be a true reflection of our genuine belief that ALL of this – this event, this church, this campaign – is about the glory of Jesus Christ. Let this be a celebration of the wonderful truth that God has created us to be living stones for the SOLE purpose of being built into His spiritual Kingdom of Christ-directed worship! And it is the building of that Kingdom that is truly the Main Event.

Worship By The Lake: A Celebration of God’s Faithfulness – A Reflection by Pastor Kevin Klassen

I first came to Whyte Ridge Baptist Church 21 years ago.  Not really because I wanted to.  And certainly not because I was very interested in finding a church home.  I recall that I visited this church reluctantly, coming here together with someone who had other friends who attended here.  And then I basically never left.

WRBC very quickly became my church family and, ever since then, God has used my time at this church to change my life in some very significant ways.  First of all, it is here that I met my beautiful wife (on the worship team, no less).  And it is also here that I have found and enjoyed many life-giving friendships.  And even deeper than that, God has used the teachings, the relationships, the joys, the challenges and the experiences that I have had in the context of this church family to change me on the inside.  He has used my time in this church to mercifully convict me and lovingly shape me, teaching me about His Word, His grace and His sufficiency.

And in recent years, God has granted me the profound joy of serving as a pastor of worship and care – ministering within the very family that has loved me and walked with me throughout almost all of my adult life.  God is so very, very good!

Because of this history, there are plenty of personal stories that I could tell about God’s faithfulness to us and through us as a church family.  And I know that there are many others who could do the same, whether they have attended for a long time or a short time.

And this coming weekend, September 10th and 11th, we are going to be gathering at our church property on McGillivray Boulevard to Celebrate the Faithfulness of God!  It will be a fun weekend of worship, fellowship and prayer – remembering the stories of God’s faithfulness in the past and asking and thanking Him for His continued faithfulness in the future.

We will be especially be remembering the gift and the purpose of the land that God has given us on McGillivray.  In fact, this weekend will serve as a celebratory kickoff to a Capital Funds Campaign that we expect will move us forward toward the construction of a new church building that God will use to continue to faithfully build His kingdom in and through us.

Worship By The Lake:

On Saturday evening at 7 pm, we’ll have an outdoor celebration that will include much praise and prayer as well as stories that celebrate the Lord and His loving kindness.   Following that will be a bonfire and fireworks.  A few of us are also camping there overnight and you’re welcome to join us (and there are portapotties there, in case that’s a deal-breaker).

372A6430

Sunday morning we’ll continue our celebration with an outdoor worship service at 10 am, followed by a BBQ lunch.

372A6452

Everyone is welcome!!!  Bring your friends, bring your lawn chairs, bring your mosquito repellent and bring hearts that are ready to worship the Lord.   Prepare your own heart by reflecting upon your own story of how you have seen God’s faithfulness to you and to this church family.  And let us come before Him with thanksgiving and also with anticipation of how He may use this land and building in the discipleship, worship and witness of His church.

For just as we each have personal stories to tell of God’s work in and around us during our time at WRBC, I believe His faithfulness is most greatly reflected in the way that He chooses to include us in the Great Story that He is writing in the building of His Kingdom for His glory.  God is so very, very good!

My God Story – Rui Pan

Hi Whyte Ridge church family, my name is Rui Pan.

My husband and I have been attending this church since last December. I really like the different group events that happen at the church. I enjoyed the women’s study this February in the winter. It helped me to know Christ in more specific ways and build the relationship with the church family.

As a new believer, I always wonder about how ministries are working out. Three of my closest friends they have been served God in China, Russia and Albania for years. I was so curious how they can have such strong faith to do God’s work in other counties for years. As their influence, I also want to have the same faith as them to sever God and help other people. From my last job, I was struggling that I don’t have the basic respect from the owner. I was praying to have a respectful, grateful and loving working environment. God answer my prayer by inviting me as one of the summer missionaries at Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) to teach 5-day Clubs for 6 weeks.

CEF sends out trained and fully equipped high school and college-age youth (Christian Youth in Action – CYIA) who are dispatched in teams of two to lead Clubs in communities across the province. I was able to partner with some other young missionaries to teach children ages 5-12 at 5-Day clubs around Manitoba.

Pan

All Summer Missionaries are young people that are supported by CEF, friends and family who become part of their ministry to the children through prayers and financial support.

Rui Pan 2

Little children between the ages of 5 and 12 can attend 5-Day Clubs for free, for a week of Bible lessons and memory verses, songs, fun games and mission stories.

Rui Pan 3

5-Day Clubs will take place from July 3 till August 19th 2016. The first week in July will be spent in training with other missionaries.

Rui Pan 4

Many of the little children attending Clubs do not know who Jesus is or how to have a relationship with God. I am excited that I can be a part of bringing the Gospel to them and our prayer is that many little children will come to know Christ this summer.

Becoming a missionary not only helped me to build my faith stronger but also taught me the importance of bringing the gospel to children. That is the reason I joined CEF and 5-Day club ministry this summer.
