EMMC Missions


Generations Sana – Venezuela

After three years of prayer about visiting Venezuela, I obeyed the Lord and made plans to go. It was an open door like a Macedonian man saying come and help us. God is faithful he took us and he returned us. I traveled in the company of three pastors from Santa Cruz, Bolivia who also […]

MEM Bolivia Ministry

There is much optimism in MEM’s ministry among the Low German Mennonite people in Bolivia. It is rewarding to see the ongoing development in the communities of Villa Nueva, now nearly 15 years old, and the much younger Hacienda Verde near the city of San Jose de Chiquitos. There is excitement in the families and […]

Gord and Beckie Klassen

It has been a very full spring season up at Gem Lake Wilderness Camp, located in Nopiming Provincial Park, 250 km North of Winnipeg (past Lac du Bonnet). I just returned from the second of two work weekends hosting more than 35 volunteers who reshingled one of our largest buildings and helped to get camp […]

Nahuatl scripture making a difference

The Aztec team are excited about distributing more audio devices containing the Nahuatl Scriptures. A total of about 60 Proclaimers for use in groups and 50 Megavoices, which are smaller units for use by families or individuals have been distributed. There are lots of testimonies of people coming to know the Lord through listening to […]

Scott & Patsy Buhler

I am sitting in our 8,000 square foot home as I write this to you! No, we didn’t suddenly strike it rich; we are in transition, temporarily living in the Panapana! It literally takes an hour to sweep our “living room”! We’ve been having some good laughs about this being the largest house we will […]

Travis Harms

This last while, we spent a lot of time traveling to Nelson House, York Landing and Split Lake to hold Bible camp promotional events. In between all these events, we worked hard to prepare Midway Bible Camp facilities for the summer. Throughout the fall and winter we had been talking about ways to increase the […]

Diedrich and Nettie Friesen

“May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands. (Psalm 90:17) That is our prayer for ourselves as D’Friesens! We are very much aware that in and of ourselves we can accomplish nothing. It is only as God lives […]

MEM Moments

Villa Nueva Church, Bolivia Sunday celebrations It was a very special Sunday, March 10 in Villa Nueva. We heard testimonies from two couples and accepted them into membership. Then we commissioned two people to serve on our Kjoakjen Rot (Church Council). We now have a full church council. We are very thankful to God for […]

A Family Celebration, large and growing

Around 500 leaders, parents, youth and children gathered recently at the Chorovi Retreat Centre as the Evangelical Anabaptist Church in Bolivia, or LIEAB, celebrated their annual Family Retreat. Taking advantage of the national holidays around Carnaval, families from the various LIEAB churches in and around Santa Cruz gathered to celebrate Jesus Christ, to praise together, […]

Conversation and response to God’s Word

It is difficult to describe what it feels like to have God provide vision, and then to watch Him make that vision a reality! We are so privileged to be able to watch Him at work. We are really feeling the effects of your prayers. A Fall renovation project provided us with a cozy living […]

Not Alone

Our theme for Mini-Church times this winter at Gem Lake Wilderness Camp was “Not Alone.” We explored God’s reaction to us when we feel alone because we have messed up in life. We also looked at how God can help us when we are feeling alone as a result of bad things that happened in […]

Safe and Loving spaces for youth

I was reminded again recently that not everyone in the North End of Winnipeg sees Inner City Youth Alive the way I do. Our team works hard every day to create safe and loving spaces for youth to be themselves, be listened to, learn about God and to have fun. But not all of our […]
