Fundraiser for Kevin and Maria Martens. Kevin and Maria Martens (Avant Mission) are preparing to begin a new ministry in Uruguay. Since most our foreign missionaries work with U.S. dollars, the low Canadian dollar can be a devastating financial blow. On June 24, the Steinbach CMC will be hosting a faspa fundraiser for Kevin and Maria Martens and they would love to see as many as possible attend.

There is no cost to attend. Please prayerfully consider a one-time donation to help off-set the costs of settling into a new country, and becoming a monthly financial partner.


Terry and Rosie Banman have safely returned to Canada. They will be returning to Papua New Guinea at the end of June.


Jacob Ginter (World Team Canada) enjoyed a brief visit in Manitoba with family, supporters, and ministry candidates. He is also planning an October-November trip to Peru to continue their ministry to the Chinese in Lima. Pray that Jacob and Karen would continue to have strength and joy in their ministry.


Elsie Reimer continues to face a serious financial struggle as she serves at Northern Canada Evangelical Mission in Prince Albert, SK. Please pray for this struggle and consider supporting her financially. If you have questions about how to do this, contact the CMC Head Office.


Pray for campers and camp workers. For many children, this summer at camp will be a rare opportunity to hear of the wonderful news of Jesus Christ. Also pray for camp workers (the CMC supports many full-time and summer staff) to have care and compassion for the children they meet.


After eleven years of service with EFCCM in Bolivia, Rudy and Erna Friesen have moved back to Canada. Pray for them as they make this transition. For those of us that call Canada our only home, it can be hard to understand why this would be a difficult transition, but invariably it is.
