Expanding our reach through partnership
On May 2 - 3, the Ambassadors of Mongolia, Thailand and Tanzania travelled to Edmonton for an Ambassador Tour. This tour involves the Ambassadors receiving tours of several businesses in the Edmonton area. There were two dinners hosted with the Ambassadors and business people.
"I would like to thank you both so much again for all the terrific work that you did in putting together an excellent Ambassadors' Business Trip to Edmonton on 2-4 May 2016. I found the trip extremely useful and learned a lot from it. I will report to Bangkok about the trip." - Vijavat Isarabhakdi, Ph.D. Ambassador of Thailand, Royal Thai Embassy
There are many aspects to this. There is international and local networking, business development, and gives us the opportunity to share the gospel. The Ambassadors are hosted in homes of local business people who are believers.This gives the Ambassadors an experience in a local home, but also exposes them to godly people. One of them asked his hosts, "Can you say a prayer before I leave?" Two of these Ambassadors are Buddhist so it was a unique opportunity to share Christ.
This was a great opportunity for Cam to partner with Jerry Sherman of Embassy Connections and what God is doing through him in Canada and other parts of the world.
Church planting training in production
The Nuvo Series training material is currently being written, scripts are being created and filming is about to start. Over the past months, the material was tested and the lessons have been worked through in great detail with Campus Crusade's church planting team at Global Church Movements. We have worked on the whiteboard through Google Hangout to bring people together from Florida, Minnesota, Alberta and BC. Through this connection, we planned out many aspects of the lessons. We continue to be enthusiastic about how God is going to use this training. To think that people can take comprehensive training in community on their cell phones from the remotest parts of the world.
Thank you so much for joining us in ministry as we are able to share Christ. Because of you, we are able to come alongside and help organizations accelerate what God has called them to by networking and resourcing them with digital media expertise and tools.
This is only possible because of your partnership.
Thank you so much.
