New Church Born in Crisis

A story from Derek and John, who both work among First Nations communities in Canada, where there are 630 distinct communities and 70 unique languages. 

For years, we had been praying and journeying with one particular First Nations community. A few months ago, we got a phone call from a friend there. In the midst of all the stresses and challenges of COVID, the community was struggling with a surge of overdoses and suicides. Our friend asked us to come and pray for them. There has never been a church in this community and we have never had an invitation quite like this one. So we gathered several men from several different First Nations and we set out in a pair of boats one day and headed out on the river that housed this community. We prayed in the different languages of the land and we prayed in unity. We prayed for an act of God. Weeks later, we got another phone call. “Please come back,” they said, “and gather to sing and pray and share stories about Jesus.” Out of that day of prayer on the river, a house church was born!
