More Than Gold update

In addition to the ministry that I am part of, there are other Christian ministries going on in Vancouver and Whistler. Here's a recent update from one of the "More Than Gold" leaders Janet Campbell:

This is a very brief update on what is going on here. We are in the middle of “week one” with 25 Baptist teams (plus some individuals) in addition to those of the other denominations and organizations. We have had some glitches and problems, but overall things are going very well and we are hearing story after story of the fruit of your prayers…. we have heard of several people who have accepted Jesus as their Saviour as a result of the witness of volunteers at the transit stations!

Often the More Than Gold pin has been the conversation-starter. People are very appreciative of the free hot drinks and there have been great conversations and relationships forged. Some of our volunteers are helping out at performing arts concerts and some are doing “as you go” ministry – literally walking around downtown talking with people, giving and collecting pins, and so on. The volunteers are excited and God is opening doors for them.

Please continue to pray for this. Also pray for safe and un-delayed travel to and from Vancouver for mission teams, and for their health and stamina.

Thank you SO much for your prayers for both of us. We definitely could not do this without God’s grace and strength. We have been blessed with many excellent helpers this past week – they have come specifically to assist us as we coordinate logistics and orientations for all of the teams.
