Team 4 is doing quite well, despite the circumstances of being in a lockdown right now. Team life is looking very different, since we can’t leave our household, except for groceries or the occasional hike. We are very grateful that we can still go for walks around the neighbourhood, as long as we stay 6 feet away from people. Our team spends most of the day together working, or spending good quality time together, and we really enjoy it! We are so grateful for everyone’s prayers for our ministry.

As the 2020 calendar year ended, and our team got ready to head off for Christmas break, we hashed out a grand plan for how we were going to come at the new year in ministry. We really wanted to find ways to connect to the people in the communities - even though many of the roads are literally blocked from access due to the pandemic.

Two days until the new year!  As we look to the months ahead many of us are making plans and asking the Holy Spirit for guidance. It IS possible to have clarity and peace when discerning God’s will. He has amazing plans for you and will lead you to them.  Plans that will bring you a future full of hope. Don’t be afraid of discernment; God is with you.  Read our new blog, and uncover the 5 Keys to Making God-Centred Decisions.  P.S. BONUS included - The Discernment Worksheet Journaling Guide

Joy. What a word to delight in; a word that has been one of the most frequent in our team. God has given each of us so many gifts as a team that has united us as one body for the church. Joy, the most prevalent gift that God has given this team, has shown each of us who we truly are as His sons and daughters.Through the highs and lows, “joy” has been our constant and our strength throughout this journey on NET. 

Hi everyone!

My name is Renske from team 6. We are stationed in Fraser Valley-East, BC this year. I am so pumped to share with you more about our team's ministry and what we’ve been up to the past few weeks! 

I was quite irritated with myself when I had realized I had forgotten my water bottle during a retreat one day. Not only does our team mingle with the youth for six hours — playing games, discussing deep questions and praying — but we also sing in praise and worship for 45 minutes after the retreat is over. By the end of the day, I felt incredibly dry and thirsty.

Hello! My name is Libby and I am on Team 2, serving in the Prince George Diocese in British Columbia.  I am so happy to be doing the ministry we have! 

I used to be jealous of people who had experienced intense experiences of conversion. People who were living their lives moving in one direction, only to have God erupt onto the scene and dramatically change things. People who would say that God revealed Himself to them, in a specific moment and in a way that changed their lives forever. 

I’ve had my fair share of conversations in the past few months. I don’t think I am alone when I say that Covid-19 was kind of a buzzkill in my social life, but it was a season of beautiful conversations nonetheless, thanks to the world wide web! 

For years, I have wanted to be like Lucy Pevensie from C.S. Lewis’ ‘The Chronicles of Narnia.’
