It's Thursday in Canada

We've had an amazing week of ministry so far in Canada. I'm looking forward to sharing more about what we've experienced. Thus far I can't say that the trip has been exactly what we expected. There are more "church" kids in our camp than we expected and so I found myself "evaluating" what could be done differently or better. I'm more and more convinced that the purpose of the established American church in Canada (Quebec) should be to: (a) plant churches; or (b) strengthen and assist existing churches through focused discipleship. We know so little about the church was are partnering with (Renaissance Church) that I'm not sure how we are serving to strengthen Renaissance in this particular capacity, and our campers represent a variety of area churches, not just one church. Most them are well-versed in the basics of the Gospel, and had we known this our approach may have been different.

But the team is doing an outstanding job. The camp has been winsome, excellent and effective in almost every way. It is a joy to watch God use each individual's giftedness - even though some of the team members are being stretched to trust God in areas where they are uncomfortable or feel weak. But we've seen God sustain us and grant us so many things we've asked for (such as unity, rest, etc).

Keep praying for us. We'll return on Sunday August 5.
