In order to understand this Scripture correctly, we need to observe the laborers during the harvest. Because we live on a hill and are able to look across the fields, we had the opportunity again this year to do so. We observed how much effort is expended to bring in the harvest.

Although no photos of the expansion project in Seminole have been posted for a while, the work does continue. Many know that 2011 was the driest year this area has ever experienced and the future seemed uncertain. But God brought us through a difficult year and we praise Him for that. The work was halted for a time, but in the summer of this year we redoubled our efforts and the brothers and sisters have been hard at work on the house of the Lord! Due to the nature of the soil here and the layout of the land, it was necessary to concentrate our efforts on the retaining walls surrounding the building to prevent soil erosion. A few pictures of that project are included – the remainder will be posted shortly. When the retaining walls are completed, the plan is to finish the interior of the sanctuary – we are all looking forward to this phase. Please continue to pray for our congregation.

The Bible course was an incredible experience, and I am so grateful that God worked everything out for it to happen this year. I'm thankful for the pastors who were willing to take so much time in preparation and time away from home to teach us. I'm thankful for everyone who attended, because everyone was a blessing to me and we were able to learn from each other, share struggles and pray for one another. I'm thankful for the church in Aylmer who was so hospitable and went to so much effort to prepare food for us, allow us to stay in their homes, and also especially for their prayers. I know other congregations were praying as well, and we are so thankful for such a supportive church family – God answered those prayers! Most of all thanks to God who gives us salvation through His Son, and that we can be free from sin and live with purpose!

God blessed us with beautiful weather as we, along with many brothers and sisters from across the world gathered for the yearly fall church convention in Edmonton from October 6-8. This year, Pastor Elke from Kelowna, BC was the guest pastor who delivered timely and scripture based messages under the guiding theme: “Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good.”

The Evangeliums Posaune (EP) is a German publication of the Church of God. We are very grateful to God for its continued existence even after many years. Readers continue to share with us that they have been blessed and edified by it.
The EP is translated into a number of languages, including Russian, Spanish, and Dutch. For a while now, we have been burdened with the thought of making this publication accessible to the English-speaking world. This thought has now become a reality! Beginning with this edition, this publication is now available in English. The content will largely mirror what the German EP contains. You will notice some minor variations, i.e. the English version will not contain any obituaries.
During each interval while the German content is being prepared for print, people from various countries are volunteering their time and talents to translate the same content into the various languages. It is an extensive but worthwhile endeavour that brings the finished periodical into reader’s hands. We hereby convey our heartfelt thanks to all who co-labour with us in this important work!
