Panama Team 2016

PANAMA: May 18-30

*****Panama BBQ Fundraiser is happening May 1 right after the service! Come join us for a burger and leave a donation for our Panama team!*****

In just a few weeks our team will be heading down to Panama to help with the construction of the Foster’s new house! The Foster’s are building a home in Yaviza, beside Einer & Girlesa’s in the camp. We are excited to reconnect with our friends and partners in Panama. On the ground in Yaviza, our team will be working alongside a group from the Wounaan church, and an individual from Arnold MB church in Abbotsford.

We want to invite you to join our team through prayer, encouragement or a financial gift. Each team member contributes personally and will help with fundraisers, but we also need support form individuals. As a team we hope to raise $8,800 to cover travel expenses, as well as raise an additional $7000 toward construction of the Foster’s new house. We raise funds as a team and if more funds than needed com win they will be used for similar mission projects in the future. Thank you for your generous support to makes this partnership possible! 

Cheques should be made out to FGCC and tax-deductible receipts will be given for donations. Funds should be marked for ‘Panama Missions Team’ and can be given to team members or sent to the church at
502 Webster Street, Saskatoon, S7N 3P9

FRANCE MISSIONS

The Boese family- Calvin, Darla and kids- have been invited by R & M Speiser to join a music ministry team in France. Darla was part of the FGCC vision trip to France last fall, and as a church we affirm their participation in a 2-week evangelistic tour in France that uses music as a platform to deliver the gospel to the unreached in this region. This upcoming trip is a natural step for our church to provide support to R & M in their mission to reach the people of France for Jesus.

*****UPDATE*****

The music ministry tour met some unexpected challenges and plans have shifted. Please read the update below from Calvin and Darla, and continue to pray for the family as they look to next summer. 

Hello Friends and Family,

Over the last month, Calvin and I have been encouraged by all the support we have received for our short term missions trip to southern France and are super excited about this opportunity to help reach out to the people in this region.  We have been blessed by prayer and financial support, and in fact, thanks to many of your donations, we have already received 85% of our financial support! We are so grateful to each of you who are praying with us and have contributed to the mission to share Christ’s love.
Unfortunately, we have just found out there are some logistical challenges regarding reservation of venues for the concerts that were to be held and the missions trip has been postponed until June 2017.  Although we were initially disappointed about this, it has become evident that God’s timing may work out even better next year. A year seems like a long time to wait but that will give the churches in France 12 months to secure venues for the concerts, time to possibly gather a larger team and also more time for us to learn French.  We are so thankful that most of our support is already in place and MB Mission will hold all the funds until we require them next year.
If you would like to know more details please contact us and we can share more with you.  We will also keep you posted on developments and things to pray for throughout this next year.
Blessings,
Darla & Calvin
