On the last Sunday in March, I spoke at Toronto Celebration Church and Niagra Celebration Church in Ontario. Pastor Peter Youngren's life has been transformed by understanding his identity in Christ and he is leading his church (one church, two locations) in moving ahead in grace in a profound way. He is a powerful communicator of God's grace and the fallacies of legalism. I was encouraged by the enthusiasm of the people in the congregation as I shared in both places.
During the week, I had the opportunity to spend time with Grace Walk Canada's Director, Mike Zenker. One night all of those who are working together with Grace Walk Canada met together for dinner and a time of sharing. It is so encouraging to see how God is opening the hearts of Canadian believers to the message of the grace walk. I am very happy with how the Lord is using Mike to share the message.
On Wednesday, I spoke at the Canadian national office for World Vision. As you probably know, World Vision is the largest Christian relief organization in the world. The I.T. Department had their staff from around the world there for meetings that day, so there must have been a dozen countries represented. Isn't it amazing how our Father works? Not only did He allow me to share the message of the grace walk with this wonderful organization, but He brought in staff from around the world to hear the message :)
