Happy Canada Day! July 1st always makes me proud to be a Canadian! We live in an amazing country. I'm very happy to announce that we are expanding to Ontario effective July 1. Ontario is our largest province and Toronto itself is an economic, media and industry centre. Reaching the leaders of Ontario is critical to seeing a national transformation throughout our country.
We are thrilled to see how God has opened a door to a key province in our nation through a series of what we believe are God ordained events. Pastor Murray Lincoln will be our ministry associate leading the Ontario chapter of Leading Influence Ministries with a clear focus on ministry to elected officials. Pastor Murray has recently concluded his ministry at Northview Pentecostal Church in Peterborough, Ontario and is eager to begin establishing a strong ministry to political leaders. Pastor Murray's long track record of community ministry throughout his distinguished pastoral career has prepared him for this exciting next step. Pastor Murray and his wife Alida have been married for over 40 years and have two daughters and 6 grandchildren.
I want to challenge you to 2 distinct opportunities. The first is to begin to pray for Murray and Alida as they launch out on this entirely faith-based venture. They will need the favour of God to open doors and build bridges as they seek to serve and be a blessing to the leaders of the Provincial Parliament in Ontario.
Secondly I want to invite you to consider sowing a seed into Ontario. The Lincoln's will be raising their own ministry support and your generosity in terms of a special seed offering to help them as they get started will be an enormous blessing and encouragement to them. This tremendous opportunity to serve and reach leaders in Ontario is just another in the series of miracles that God is performing within government across our nation.
