When you plan and prepare for the best, expect to rest!
God does say ‘yes’ to His promises. When the body of Christ comes together, works together, cooperates with one another, we can expect to rest in the Lord’s blessings.
“Out of all the events I have ever organized, this was by far the smoothest running operation thanks to an incredible team of people (volunteers, staff, presenters, intercessors, partners and others) who gave sacrificially of themselves to ensure the Lord’s work is done and His purpose for MissionFest fulfilled.” – Sharon Ganesh, Executive Director
This year MissionFest has seen many new attendees who came for the first time and were greatly impacted by the various programs offered. There were attendees who were enlightened to the truth of sex-trafficking in Canada and never knew it existed. Others were getting equipped and encouraged to step into their call in the areas of marketplace ministry, men’s and women’s ministry, missional outreach… and many more.
Once again the ENGAGE Youth night was packed with an attendance that gets larger every year. Nigel Paul from MoveIn gave a message that stirred up a hunger for God in the youth as he challenged them to give up the things of this world in order to gain the things of heaven.
“Dave Toycen’s messages really touched my heart. He is a true living legacy who reflects amazing example to the broken hearted and Gods’ people. I love how he challenged Gods’ people with the statement “why we do what we do? He said we are change agents for God and that God loves us so much that he wants to enhance his reputation through us. He said, may the why of God’s call break your hearts . May we all have a heart of compassion that he reflects to the world.” – Treneta Bowden, Faith Arise Ministries
Egyptian speakers Sameh Hanna and Majed El Shafie shared their passion for the great breakthroughs that are taking place as more and more people come to Christ despite the persecution.
Prayer and praises were lifted up in the peaceful atmosphere of the Prayer Chapel, the outskirts of the parking lot and in the exhibit areas.
God showed up in so many ways – ministering through teaching, networking, connecting, worship, prayer, testimonials, healing, open doors of opportunities and most of all through an incredible demonstration of His love. With love and adoration to the One who is worthy, we labour. Here Him say, ‘well done my good and faithful servants’.
