Hi everyone, my name is Randy Stanton, and I am the Regional Representative for CBM here in Atlantic Canada. As part of the Canadian Church Engagement team, I help people and churches engage in Christian missions.
Thank you all for entering into a partnership with CBM as we serve the world through Word and Deed. This opportunity to walk as sojourners in Christ globally is life-changing. We have all received blessings by opening our hearts to Christian brothers and sisters worldwide. Thank you for walking with us.
During the long months of a pandemic winter here in Canada, we may find that local disruption and lack of social and sometimes spiritual closeness leave us immobile, but we have been active! One highlight of the past few years is the resilience of the local church that has remained focused on what God has called us: “To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8). This is indeed a praise item as churches have walked with us in helping continue the work. Most programs and ministries of CBM have carried on, but with the added complications of Covid. Many people, villages and churches have benefited as we were able to keep completing the mission projects in which we engage. Everything from educating women, pastors and children to planting crops, providing food and shelter to refugees and much work in Covid relief. Praise God that we have supported our mission partners together.
I am overwhelmed by the generosity and thoughtfulness of our people during what, to us, is a very challenging time.
Thank you for being a partner with CBM, and we appreciate your faithful prayers!
