She Matters for Canada
Please pray for the newest member of CBM, Dr. Cheryl Bear of the Nadleh Whut’en First Nation. Cheryl joins CBM as Indigenous Relations Specialist. For the past year she has been the spokesperson for CBM’s ongoing She Matters Campaign. In story and song Cheryl has been a great resource to our churches who wish to learn how best to build authentic relationships with Indigenous people in their own communities. Please pray for Dr. Bear as she builds on the responsive hearts of our churches and provides leadership in this new role.
The Bolivian Baptist Union (UBB) churches are preparing for their national convention later this month. Please pray for unity and vision as they gather together. May they find renewed energy in their mission to be a witness to the love of God. The UBB’s development arm, OBADES, runs numerous projects supported by Canadian Baptists. Please pray too for CBM Field Staff and National , as they work alongside the staff of both UBB and OBADES, to facilitate SENT teams to Bolivia.
Please keep the family of former CBM General Secretary John Keith in your prayers following the passing of his wife Virginia Keith on March 6. She passed peacefully as John and their three children, Carol, Shirley and John Gordon sang hymns, read scripture and prayed her into eternity. Virginia leaves behind her husband John with whom she shared 62 amazing years of life and ministry on five continents in over 20 countries, three children, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
