Witness workers arriving in Canada: 

If your congregation would be interested in having a Witness worker share stories with you, please contact Tim Wiebe-Neufeld. What a wonderful opportunity to be connected to the global church and to our Anabaptist brothers and sisters abroad! 

Bock Ki Kim arrived safe and sound in Vancouver April 6th. Bock Ki is in Canada for the next two months to share inspirational stories with supporting congregations, reconnect with his adult children and increase relational funding opportunities. Pray for Bock Ki to make significant connections during this Canadian visit, with those congregations already connected to the ministry in South Korea and with new faith communities. Pray also for Bock Ki’s wife, Sook Kyoung, who has remained at home in South Korea continuing her after-school English tutoring ministry.    

AnchorTom & Christine Poovong
 (and their son Joseph) arrived in Calgary April 13. The Poovongs will began their Canadian Ministry in Alberta, traveling to Saskatchewan, then to Manitoba and conclude in Ontario. All the while, Tom and Christine will spend time with family, share their vision for Thailand and invite churches and interested individuals to join in partnership. The Poovongs are disappointed however that their niece Phimchanok will not be coming with them to Canada. Phimchanok is like a daughter to Tom and Christine, and a sister to Joseph. Phimchanok was denied a visa to Canada. And so she will remain in Thailand. Please pray for Tom, Christine and Joseph as they travel for 2 months without her. Pray also that Phimchanok will be brave without her family close by.  

Tom & Christine’s Alberta speaking schedule: 
May 6 – Bergthal Mennonite Church (Didsbury) 
May 13 – Trinity Mennonite Church (Calgary)  

AnchorThis Friday, April 27th Mike and Cheryl Nimz will arrive at Pearson International Airport to begin two and a half months of Canadian Ministry. Please pray for good health, continued strength and many opportunities for Mike & Cheryl to share their stories and experiences of serving with the Anabaptist Network in the UK. Please contact your Regional Church office to know their speaking schedule and when they will be in your area.

Mike & Cheryl’s Alberta speaking schedule:
June 24 – Alberta congregation (your church) 
July 8 – Lendrum Mennonite Brethren Church (Edmonton) 

AnchorThis Friday, the Barkman family (Christina, Darnell, Cody, Makai, Teyah and Jericho) will be returning to Canada after completing 6 years of living and serving in Manila as Mennonite Church Canada Witness workers. Hear the Barkman’s interesting perspective on how a very familiar mode of transportation in the Philippines - the “Jeepney” relates to the Christian journey of a faith community. Read the full story at: http://darnellandchristina.blogspot.ca/ Please keep the Barkman family in prayer as they transition back to North America; pray also for Peace Church Philippines as they too live with this significant change in their faith community.
