The first weekend in April had Marty and her companion Teri Civitarese flying to Toronto for a Prophetic Conference with DOVE Canada. On Saturday, Marty taught along with Brian Sauder on how to hear from God personally, and for the purpose of operating in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit for the encouragement, strengthening and comfort of the church! Teri's valuable role was that of an intercessor for all involved and for the conference as a whole. It was a really good conference, attended by folks from several parts of Ontario. We believe it was very profitable for all involved - including Brian, Teri and Marty. We all had a great time!
On Sunday Marty spoke and ministered at Harvest Family Community Church, the DOVE church in Willow Beach Canada. What a great day it was. We recently heard from Lynn Ironside, pastor of that church, that one of the members who asked for prayer for healing of his back that day has had no pain at all since then. He is totally healed! Waaa Hooo!
Harvest is situated along a very large lake and even in April it was still frozen enough that people were still out on it fishing through holes in the ice, sledding, and various other ice-involved activities. The ice was beginning to thaw along the edges of the lake, but that wasn't any hindrance to lots of folks out there.
Marty only had her iPhone and this was the only half0decent photo. Hard to see because the folks were out so far, but the people were sledding (on the left) and others doing other stuff out there.
One of the joys of world travel is special culinary treats in various countries. For instance, in England we look forward to bacon butties (an English bacon sandwich made on a big soft bun) and fish and chips; in Italy it is gellati; in Greece in is Greek Yogurt with Greek Honey (yummmm); in Kenya it is sukuma wiki and chapatis; but in Canada it is Tim Horton's coffee and Butter Tarts. Both of which we had! What a treat!!
WE ARE OFF TO KENYA ON MAY 30! PLEASE PRAY!!
BLESS, John & Marty
