One of our joys since ministering in Québec City is seeing God bring several second-generation believers together to serve Him. Their weddings are a public testimony to the Grace of God in a land where fewer and fewer marry today. Tomorow we expect around 200 people for Guillaume and Sara’s wedding, many of whom will be inside a Bible-preaching church for the first time in their lives. Please pray for the message that will be preached by Pastor Claude Jutras, and that in all things God might be glorified.
After reporting and/or preaching in 4 churches and visiting 2 others in NC, TN, SC, and GA, a High School Reunion, Jonathan and Heather’s graduation, and a wonderful time with family and friends!
On January 17th, Stephanie gave birth to a son, Derek Savard. Jeremie and Stephanie are doing well in their adjustments to family life!
You can see more pictures of the accident at summer camp on this Facebook page of a local newspaper (La Tribune).
Here are a few pictures of Stephanie and Jeremie’s wedding.
We already announced our daughter Stephanie’s engagement to Jérémie Savard in a previous e-mail update. But, we are also delighted that God has led Benoit Guillot and Amy Templeton together for His glory. Benoit is quite busy these days catching up at his government job and moving into a new apartment after a year’s sabbatical for seminary. Like Jérémie, Amy is a graduate of Northland. In fact, it was Jérémie that introduced her to Benoit! Amy is the daughter of Missionary Stanley Templeton and grew up helping her parents in their ministry in Peru. The wedding is to take place in Pennsylvania on November 6th. Do pray for Amy as she will be adjusting soon to a language, culture and climate quite different from South America. Of course, she already has the wonderful advantage of being an MK!
It is the desire of both these young couples to be a part of the ministry team in the work here. This of course, is very exciting and encouraging for us!
