Enjoying the beautiful October colours
on the road to Truro, Nova Scotia.
After our big weekend in Moncton, we travelled to Saint John where we connected with friends and spoke at gatherings hosted by Lancaster and RiverCross Baptist Churches. We are so thankful to pastors Wayne Murphy, Rob Nylen, and John Knight, who are leading their churches to participate in God's mission in their community and around the world.
We are so impressed with how multi-cultural the Canadian Baptist of Atlantic Canada are becoming. In churches that we have been with from Charlottetown to Saint John have met people who have immigrated from across Africa, Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East. In particular, we have been delighted to talk with people who come from some of the communities where we work in Kenya and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Erica with Pastor Wayne Murphy and Women's
Groups in Saint John, New Brunswick
Across Atlantic Canada, women's groups continue to be a vital part of local and global missions. We are so grateful for the members of the Hillcrest and Lancaster women's missionary societies that shared a wonderful afternoon with us in Saint John. These groups are helping their churches and communities to live generously in the compassionate way of Jesus.
Visiting with our friends Andrew and Kelly Myers
We are also thankful for the dear friends that have taken time to connect with us on our great Canadian road trip. Some of these friends have become family to us over our years of ministry. It has been such a gift to have an Autumn in Canada.
