After a summer break in Ontario and perhaps the strangest summer ever in BC politics, a collective 'Game On' is just around the corner. BC resumes this coming Friday with a Throne Speech and the first NDP government in 16 years. Ontario resumes on Sept 11 and heads into the last 9 months before an election. Saskatchewan follows in early October and is undergoing a search for a new premier. (Who says politics is boring?)
In all of it, Leading Influence is present and well positioned for another season of ministry to our political leaders. We believe that our nation is in desperate need of a spiritual awakening among our political leaders! Our belief is rooted in a deep conviction that God loves leaders in every part of the political spectrum and yearns to reveal Himself to them in profound and meaningful ways. We are thrilled to be called to fulfill that part of God's plan on the Canadian political scene.
Do You Know Someone Who Might Fit?
Like any non-profit, we have our challenges and opportunities. We continue to seek full-time ministry associates in Edmonton and Toronto. These are crucial opportunities to see the Kingdom of Heaven come in key places of influence in our nation. Pray with us that God would send us workers who share our vision to reach and impact leaders with a message of hope, help, and strength.
We Need Your Help!
We are also experiencing a financial challenge at this time. Summers are always a bit of a challenge for us and we normally do a summer appeal to our friends and partners and see an excellent response, but this year's wildfire situation in the BC interior made reminding and encouraging our BC donors inappropriate because of the pressing need all around them. We are so proud of the way some of our friends and donors stepped up to volunteer and provide assistance to the thousands who were displaced. We fell well short of our anticipated goal of $15,000 through July and August. While we have a need, we are confident in God's ability to provide and make a way for us!
Your gift of $25/50/75 or any amount you choose to help us with will make a huge difference for us right now. You can click here to give by credit card or to find how to give through the mail. Thanks for standing with us at this crucial time. We are confident that with the support of many people just like you, we will see our budget needs met!
A New Season
September is a bit of an anomaly. It marks the beginning of fall, harvest and the end of summer and yet it always feels like the beginning of a new year/season. Our prayer for you is that this coming fall season would be marked with God's blessing, bounty and goodness in your life, home, family and business/work in every way! Have a fantastic September!
