My name is Stephane H. Maillet. I am a 2019 graduate of the Southeast Institute of Biblical Studies in Karns TN. I came to SEIBS from the Riverview church of Christ in N.B. Canada. It is my desire to continue serving along with the Riverview congregation in this area of Canada for the time being.
The Riverview body of believers was planted in 1976 and meets in a converted house. Before I went to SEIBS, I was ministering there as an evangelist for 6 years. My family and I are excited to be back to the service here and help the brethren in Riverview. We've been involved with this mission for 10+ years now.
In order for us to minister in Riverview N.B. Canada, we continue to raise support. This support covers living expenses and expenses associated with the ministry itself.
There are millions of souls on this Coast without any trained evangelist. The area that the Riverview church serves has a similar socio political climate as the United States but is more advanced in moral degradation. This is a worthy work to support. Thank you in advance for your consideration and prayers. Sincerely yours, Stephane H. Maillet

RECOMMENDATION To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing this letter on behalf of Stephane Maillet and his family, to encourage you to consider supporting him in his good work.
Due to immigration policies, Stephane and his family had to return to their home country of Canada. They have returned to the Riverview congregation in New Brunswick, Canada, where Stephane was preaching prior to coming to the Southeast Institute of Biblical Studies in Knoxville, TN.
I am familiar with the congregation in Riverview, where Stephane is working. I have visited the Riverview congregation three times to preach in gospel meetings. It’s a good, sound congregation, planted in a very difficult area. The church needs to be there, and I am thankful that Stephane and his family are willing to undertake the challenges he knows are ahead of him there.
Prior to Stephane’s arrival at the Southeast Institute of Biblical Studies, I knew that he was zealous for the gospel. However, after his arrival, I quickly learned his Bible knowledge matched his zeal. Stephane is a man who knows the truth and cannot contain it. He can strike up a conversation about Jesus with anyone, anywhere, and that is exactly what kind of man the church at Riverview needs.
I am aware that there are many deserving works; more than resources available, but I can assure you that your investment in Stephane and his family, and the church at Riverview will be money, encouragement, and prayers well spent.
If you have any questions about Stephane or the work in Riverview, please feel free to contact me.
I can be reached at email@example.com or you can call me at 865-274-3479. Sincerely, Steve Higginbotham Preaching Minister at the Karns church of Christ
