Oasis 2015 – Wolfville, Nova Scotia
It’s been great to be together with our Atlantic Baptist family at Oasis 2015. There have been a lot of highlights over the past few days, but of course the one highlight that is most significant in our family’s life is our appointment by Canadian Baptist Ministries to serve as Global Field Staff. We are so excited to have been ‘invited to the table’ alongside so many amazing people!
It has been so great to spend some time getting to know some of our new colleagues. We’ve enjoyed having Terry Smith (Director of International Partnerships), Jennifer Lau (Director of Global Discipleship & Canadian Engagement), and Gordon Brew (Communications Manager) with us at Oasis from CBM’s office in Mississauga. We also got to meet some new colleagues for the first time and we are looking forward to meeting more in the days/weeks to come.We had the wonderful privilege of meeting Darrell & Laura Lee Bustin (Field Staff in Rwanda) who are home in Canada for a few months while Darrell recovers from back surgery. We also met Geoff and Deanne Carter (Field Staff in Prague), and CBM’s newest staff members, Randy Stanton who will serve as the Atlantic Canadian Representative as well as Adrian Gardner who will serve as CBM’s Discipleship Programs Facilitator.
It has been such a blessing to be a part of Oasis 2015! It is encouraging to see and hear all that God is doing in and through His church in Atlantic Canada. One of the favorite worship songs this week was Rend Collective’s ‘Build Your Kingdom Here’. It’s so exciting to be part of a family of churches who are working hard to build the Kingdom of God here in Atlantic Canada and around the world. Blessed!!
