Dear Family & Friends,

We pray you are doing well. We continue to pray for all of you. We pray that your hearts are steadfast and trusting in Him in every situation. We need not have any fear because we can be secure in Him!

We originally planned to be back in Canada for the Summer, but the apartment we’ve been living in has been sold and the new landlord wants us out. Inflation has really kicked in and it’s making it hard to find affordable living space. We are in a holding pattern—we’d appreciate your prayers.

School is nearly done and we’re all looking forward to some Summer holidays! Next year, I will be working in the Middle school as an aide and part-time teacher.

A local believer here really struggled through Covid, and has been struggling with her walk with God—hasn’t seen an answer to her prayers. She’s been looking for work and has said many times that she was going to give up on God. Then she had a dream, that I and others were praying for her and it re-invigorated her faith, and I was able to bless her with a “care package” which included a couple of books in her language. She messaged me a few days later about how blessed she was that I’d been praying for her and that she had started reading one of the books.

I (Ron), with my friend (a local believer), met up to visit with others through the Bible Correspondence Course. Here in this country, the people have a lot of respect for the older generation—and I’m in that category. So my friend and I went to visit a man in his late 40s. He lives in a small village between two cities that isn’t easy to get to. He’s been a believer since 2019 through a TV program (his wife is not a believer), and he’s the only believer in his village—we were the first believers who visited and prayed with him.

Another man, along with his family was in a car accident 15 years ago. He lost his two oldest children in the accident, one daughter surviving. His wife, with a brain injury, is in hospital along with other complications. He’s been a believer for a year, and had tears of joy for our visit, someone from Canada was praying for him! I plan to continue these monthly visits.

These stories are examples of what God has called us to do—discipling new believers! We are so blessed to be a part of what God is doing.

Thanks to everyone for your prayers and support, we know you’re behind us and cheering us on!
