Second Annual Canada Mission's Trip

Once again, we are planning to spend time ministering in Canada. Last year our trip included attending the Waldheim Missions Conference, assisting Torch Trail Bible Camp, and speaking at Neuanlage Grace Mennonite Church's family camp. As the trip last year was an "experiment", this year we will be shortening the trip. Our agenda includes attending the Waldheim Missions Conference and a community outreach for children in Waldheim.

At the Waldheim Missions Conference we hosted a "Kid's Conference" so that the children of Waldheim would be able to learn about world missions in an exciting way. We sang songs, played games, learned about a missionary in another country, and shared a snack similar to food eaten in the missionary's country with the children. We enjoyed our time there immensely as the members of the community of Waldheim were very welcoming and hospitable. A couple at the church, Wes and Lynn Friesen hosted all nine of us in their home. Not only did they share their lovely home but Lynn provided us with delicious meals throughout the course of our week long stay. We were invited back to do the Waldheim Missions Conference's Kid's Conference again. Along with the Kid's Conference, Waldheim Missions Conference wants us to do an outreach for the unchurched children in the community at a local park. We are excited to see how things turn out. You can be praying for us as we prepare for the trip and as we minister in Canada this summer. The dates of the conference are July 25-28.

Alanna: Class of 2010

Alanna will be graduating on June 5, 2010. Everyone is welcome to come. The ceremony is at 11:00am at Flathead High School. Below is one of Alanna's senior pictures.

Alanna will be working this hard summer. She has added an additional mowing job, so she now has a total of three. Along with her usually mowing jobs, Alanna was hired at Lowe's as a Seasonal Cashier with nearly full-time hours.

She plans on attending Corban University (formerly Western Baptist University) in Salem, Oregon this fall. She will be majoring in accounting and business administration,and minoring in Bible as she desires to combine accounting into full-time missions in the future. Please pray that the Lord will provide the finaces so she will have the oppotunity to attend.
