UPDATES & REPORTS
RIVERVIEW NEW BRUNSWICK CANADA
Nice sunny morning here in N.B. Canada. Birds are signing songs. 6:30 AM and the Maillet family begins to awake. I’m already in the office writing this update & report. We pray you are all doing well, healthy, safe, and growing in His Word.
CURRENT DISTRESS: The COVID-19 mandates are still in effect and we are told to “get used to it, this is the new norm until all citizens receive the vaccine." They have also since been releasing hardcore criminals from jail. And they have also now banned many guns and have begun confiscating methods. Of course this only affects the law abiding citizen.
We have not had any new case of the virus its been almost a month. And from the ones we’ve had (118), all have survived. And so, they are now as of this week allowing religious bodies to meet in numbers of 10 and under in so much we are “socially distanced” 6ft from each other. And so I’m going to try and have two services on Sunday. Which will accommodate all members of the congregation. Dividing them in two parties so that everyone has a chance to meet.
The police will be paying attention to us. They have labeled us a “terrorist threat, right wing extremists.” Many branches of Socialism are very difficult to live under. But we’ll keep sharing Jesus till we are removed.
GOSPEL PROGRESS: I continue to produce daily gospel podcasts. Midweek Bible studies. Sunday studies and sermons. This generates spiritual fruit.
We continue to work the community. Neighbours are friendly. We invite religious conversation. We’re in contact with the members of the church and have been able to meet several in the parking lot of our assembly area. We’ve been going to the congregation house to clean up and get it ready for once we can finally all be there. Kids rooms, teen rooms, adult classes, etc.
We currently have 6 names in our prayer list in which we are in religious conversation with. 3 of them have been willing to listen to gospel material for the purpose of starting a study. We shall see how it goes. Naturally I will keep you all informed.
FINANCIAL SUPPORT: Our support still lacks $2k/m. Yet we are so very thankful to God for the many who have decided to partake in this work financially with us. Because of that we’ve raised more than we thought would be possible at this time. We pray God will bless you with the continued ability to help. For we know you will use it for kingdom growth.
