This is the assurance we have in approaching God. That if we ask anything ‘according to His will’ He hears us. And if we know that He hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of Him’’ 1 John 5:14-15 

Thank you one and all for holding us close at this time, in prayer and with all kinds of support: cards, emails, finances… all wrapped in Love. 

  • Seven months!!! Imagine: all on planet earth have been in uncharted territory.
  • We continue to pray, adjust, obey, and trust. God has not been taken by surprise, He
    was, is and will be in charge.
  • When frustrated with Covid-19 regulations and restrictions, perhaps Paul’s words fit
    the best:
    Rom 12:9-21 “love must be sincere … Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good’’ Ch13: 1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities… the authorities that exist have been established by God’’

Praise God we live in a free country where we can share the good news freely. Jesus said “Work while it is day for the night cometh…’’ let us share it now…

  • A family member recently recovered from C-19 but no other family or close friends have been affected by the virus. Praise the Lord!
  • Nunavik thankfully has had under 20 cases all of whom have recovered of a total population of near 13,000.
  • The Francophone countries in Africa that I am in regular contact with such as Rwanda, Burkina Faso, DRC Congo and Ivory Coast have a total pop of 151 million. There have been 474 recorded deaths from the Corona virus. All deaths are sad but an incredibly low number compared to 151 million people in developed countries.
  • Conclusion? Move to the Arctic or Africa.

One Inuit youth among others, has been flourishing this year. In March 2019, I got a message saying: “Sorry Gary I can’t do this anymore’’ followed by a picture of his rifle. I knew he would use it on himself if he did not get help.

  • I remember praying with this boy at the alter when he was 12. So, I called a friend in his village who went immediately to find and help the suicidal 15-year-old.
  • Unlike most, he has Christian grandparents who pray.
  • Last year the Christian hockey camp was an incredibly positive experience for him.
  • His grandpa and a couple of other adults invested in him by spending time and showing him how to take care of himself on water or land and he has responded.
  • The most recent pictures he sent me was of him driving through the strong rapids for 4+ kilometres, His first time solo (He said, I was shaking).
  • He passed the ‘’ you’re now a man test’’ by harvesting two Beluga Whales.
  • Pray this young man begins to flourish in a walk with Jesus.


  • Besides the common cold our families have been healthy.
  • Two of our closest neighbours asked us for specific prayer this month. One with cancer the other for their family.
    • After stopping all cancer treatments at age 77. She has accepted the fact that she needs to do a life inventory. As she said. “weather I go up or down…” so she listened carefully today as I shared how she could know where she’d spend eternity.
  • A Friend is in a 1⁄2 way house and next month will be released after seven years of probation/incarceration. Pray for him to yield 100% to Christ.
  • Rwanda, Congo, Burkina Faso were greatly helped through ACOP emergency fund.
  • Brother in law remains in a Calgary hospital, is stable but experienced internal bleeding due to a non-curable liver disease. A miracle is needed so prayeris appreciated.
  • Pray for a young friend recovering from attempting suicide.

Our love and prayers,
Gary & Shelly
