In early August Calvary is sending a team to Montreal Canada. Last year, Family Ministry pastor Brian Martin and Matthew Bergquist traveled to Montreal to explore the possibility of ministry there. Earlier this month, Calvary-supported missionaries Adam and Michelle Morgan moved to Sherbrooke Quebec, where they will soon begin language school in preparation for future ministry in Montreal. Adam and his oldest son will join our team after we arrive in Montreal as we conduct an English camp for immigrants August 6-10. Three staff members from Christian Direction in Montreal will serve as our translators as our students speak Arabic or other foreign languages, some French, and little to no English. We will use lessons from the Old Testament books of Daniel and Jonah to teach basic English vocabulary with an emphasis on trusting and obeying God. Daniel was taken as a captive from Judah and lived in Babylon much of his life. He modeled trust and obedience as he served God in a foreign country. Jonah had to learn some hard lessons in how to obey God. Learning to trust and obey God are lessons that each of us need to learn.
Pictured are our team members (left to right) David Henry, Roy MaKosky, Glenna MaKosky, Kathy Bergquist, Nathan Bergquist, Matthew Bergquist, and Tom Bergquist. We leave Rochester August 3. It will take us two days to drive to Montreal. On August 5, we will worship in Montreal, have dinner with missionaries Steve and Jane Wheeler, and spend time exploring the city before beginning the English camp on the 6th. Please pray for our safety in travel and good conversations during our travel as we prepare for our time of ministry in Montreal.
