Dave & Olivia Phillips continue to pray and plan as they anticipate moving to Toronto to plant a new Wesleyan Church. They recently provided an update…

Greetings, Milliken Church Family,

We are very excited about what is happening for the future plan in Toronto! As of right now we will be moving to Toronto in the first week of June. We are currently on the hunt for an affordable apartment near the area where the church will be. As part of this our team members Shane and Sarah will be moving by the end of the summer to help us hold local outreach events, with a goal of having small groups start in the early fall.

We are also excited about two other potential families that may be joining the team. This would put our core team up to eight people, which is very exciting. We are formulating ideas for outreach events that would suit the area as well as maximize the gifts and talents of our teammates.

We have now raised a little under under half of the fifty-thousand dollars we would like to have fund-raised as of our move. Please keep us in your prayers for: (a) our move, (b) our teammates, and (c) the remainder of our financial support needed. We look forward to being close to you all soon!

God bless,

David & Olivia
