Dear pastors, missionaries, chaplains and friends,
Steve Jones here…most of Canada is just coming out of what felt like the longest, coldest winter on record. Spring has sprung, and so it’s time to start thinking about summer.
Today I want to make you aware of a wonderful opportunity to spend a couple months in Quebec, an opportunity for a short-term missions trip this summer. Imagine eating poutine, bagels, smoked meat, pea soup and tourtière all summer long. Sounds like heaven to me!
I’ve asked our STM Connexion Coordinator, Chris Middleton, to introduce you to the opportunity:
“There is no doubt that Québec remains a place where the Gospel has not been firmly established. With less than 1% of the population claiming to be evangelical, there continues to be a great need for the church in Canada to invest in reaching this province for Christ. JBEQ is a ministry of the Fellowship French Mission that, for 40 years, has been recruiting, training and utilizing youth and young adults to take part in that effort to share Christ in Quebec.
“Going forward, JBEQ is hoping to increase their efforts to reach out in partnership with churches and church plants in Quebec through their short-term summer teams. They are looking for youth and young adults from Fellowship churches across the country that would be willing to come to Quebec, train and serve for a two-month period over the summer as part of these teams that reach out throughout the province. A serviceable knowledge of French is a necessity, but more important is a passion for God that shows itself in a willingness to serve and to learn (for His glory). This is a great opportunity for individuals and churches to take part in an important work of the Gospel within our country.
“Please take a minute to learn more about the JBEQ ministry by watching this video; consider how your church could connect with this important ministry, and who within your church you could challenge to take part in JBEQ this summer.”
Please prayerfully consider this opportunity yourself or pass it on to a friend, high school or college student who wants to serve the Lord this summer while improving their French language skills.
