Thunder Bay

The winter is cold, but God’s love is a fire that keeps us going! Things are taking shape here on the property that God has given us. We have been slowly remodelling the manse that sits next to the church building. It looks like we will be ready to start renting two apartments in it before the summer arrives. This will provide an income stream for the ministries we believe could be started in 2017. Please pray that God will help us finish this remodelling work, funding is slow but steady. And pray that we will connect with some solid, reliable renters. We want this church to bless them too – whoever they are!

We continue to trust God for the financial support that will help us take our next steps. The church family here is positive and excited about the days ahead. And we are grateful for all the ways you have already partnered with us. God bless you for everything you do. The harvest is coming to Harvest Community Church – and we are eager to see it.

Blessings! Pastor Carl & Lorna Edmonston
