Five Years

Five years ago today, August 9, 2004, we arrived in Vancouver to begin the work God had called us to. We can't imagine living anywhere else or working with any other people. We love you, Lions Gate Baptist Church!

A few random pics over the years . . .

Our very first meeting - Bible study in our home, January 5, 2005


Handing out literature - this venue was short-lived. It's owned by the transportation system, and we were breaking the law by handing out literature there.


Our first Sunday morning service - February 6, 2005


Annual Men of the Word Conference, sponsored by our church. This is one of Wes' dreams that the Lord has allowed to come to fruition.


Having church in our house because of a city workers' strike. Our rec centre, where we meet, was closed.

  1. Five years is a big accomplishment. My teen years were spent in church planting with my parents. I learned a lot and your pictures brought back many memories.

    Good, but hard ones.

  2. Isn't it exciting to look back and see what God had planned all along!?
    I enjoyed your camp posts. Charlotte's camp experience changed her life. She is already talking about next year.

  3. Hi, Becky! We have so many good memories! So far the Lord has blessed us with wonderful times here.

    Bren, it is SO exciting to look back and then look ahead! I'm so glad Charlotte loved camp and that the Lord used it to change her life.
