Gord & Heather - October 2018

PRAISE:  For an excellent time in Ottawa this past weekend. I met with 15 church leaders on the Saturday morning so they could become acquainted with each other and also have an opportunity to learn together. I anticipate bringing this group together, once every three or four months.  About a month ago I had a video conference call with three people; one from France, one from Australia and one from India. We were discussing the question; What are we doing to develop the leaders of the churches of our church network? The last question was, How are you supporting individual leaders who may be discouraged or in trouble of some kind? One said they provide professional counselling, another said they provide volunteer support for persons are willing to receive it and the third said that they help, if they can, pastors find lawyers to help them get out of prison. Many of our pastors have been in jail.
