Bonjour Pastor Henri, Sister Gladys and the Canaan staff and community,
We wanted to express a deep appreciation for hosting us at Canaan and share
with you the blessings being spread beyond Canaan walls. The week we spent
there was life changing not only for the 6 of us who traveled to Canaan, but
Grace Redeemer Church. The team gave their testimonies this past Sunday and
there wasn’t a dry eye in the sanctuary. I wish you could have heard each
team member testify to how God opened their eyes to what he was doing around
the world and at Canaan. I was especially touched by the lives you live and
how God has grown Canaan to be a special refuge for the lost and broken. It
is a sanctuary and a reflection of the beautiful work He did on the cross.
We were and still are so strengthened and encouraged by you. We continue
to pray for you, Canaan, and Haiti. We love what God has done and is doing
there. Please view us at your partners and servants in Christ and don’t
hesitate to ask us for things. Many of us will return to Canaan soon not
only to serve the Lord, but to see our family and friends because God
crossed our paths and bound our hearts. You should all know you have a home
in Bergen County, New Jersey. Come visit us.
Along with the testimonies a slideshow of our journey was shared with our
church. It is posted on our trip blog (see link below).
Your friends at GRC,
