Henry also directs the work of evangelism with OAC here in Canada. Praise God for several salvations within the last 2 weeks, 1 Hindu girl who responded to the gospel oresentation at a soccer camp in Mississauga and 3 local children through VBS. Pray for a Muslim man and his family from Mississauga who want to visit with Henry and Kara. Pray for wisdom and a good use of time to pursue several outreach avenues within the Amish community.
