WOW!! What a year it has been so far and we still have two more months to go. If I was to use one word to describe the year so far I would say transformative. The thing about this year of mission is that the Lord had brought each one of my team members here together, on this specific team for a reason. I firmly believe that the Lord has planted a seed in each one of us for this mission and to bring others into a relationship with Him. Now being on this year of NET, we have taken this seed and I believe that we have been watering it and tending to that seed, and it is starting to grow. The thing about a mustard seed is that it sometimes is barely perceptible to anyone at the beginning, but it becomes magnificent when it matures. This is how I would explain this year up to now. We, as a team are truly beginning to see our trees blossom. 

Sometimes when things are too easy, it drains us more than when life is busy.

     God's faithfulness for our team has been a common theme throughout the past couple of months. Throughout the pandemic that everyone is facing, God continues to shine His glory, move mountains, and radiate His love throughout our team and those we are ministering to.  God always shows up and I mean always! 

Hi everyone! 

Renske here from team 6 again, stationed in the beautiful Fraser Valley- East, BC! I am excited to share with you all what has been going on in our ministry over the past weeks! 

Hello Everyone!
I hope this update finds you all happy, healthy, and holy. Some exciting things happened!...

Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found Him of whom Moses in the Law and also the Prophets wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." Nathanael said to him, "Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see." (John 1:45-46)

When our team discovered we would be able to hang out with students in their classrooms, we were overjoyed! Not only could we play with them in the gym, but we could sit and spend time with them all day! We were also invited to play music at Vanier high school’s Ash Wednesday liturgy, and to visit classrooms at Holy Family! We could not wait to get started, especially because we really wanted to dive in and dig deep on building up the youth groups and the students’ faith here. That way, we could understand how to minister to them more once we understood their own relationship with God.
