Giesbrecht’s June 2022 Missions Update

“Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God. For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God. “(2 Cor.9: 10-12)

Greetings from Winnipeg, Manitoba!

Thank you for your prayers as we traveled in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. It has been three months since we arrived in Canada and now that schools are ending, our eyes are slowly turning back to Japan.

As we have been sharing the wealth of the harvest with people in Canada, we have had so many rich experiences and conversations. Sometimes it seems that it is not fair that we get to be blessed by all of these mature disciples while many people have to do without. Meeting mature disciples is a great reminder of the importance of doing discipleship well, encouraging Christians to mature and not get stuck in their spiritual growth. Of course it is God who does the heavy lifting through the trials of life and the Holy Spirit!

Thank you for praying,

Cory and Masami
