I once gave a gospel lecture in Zurich. Every time I went to the lecture hall in the convention center, I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this cosmopolitan city. It is as if all the splendor of the world is spread out between the great sea and the green mountains. And the magnificent great hall in the beautiful convention center harmonizes with this great city.
But apparently all the beauty and all the riches of such a city cannot satiate the heart of man. That is why many people came streaming in to hear the gospel.

The work in Bolivia is growing. There are two congregations, two schools and many opportunities to reach out. The work is sometimes difficult, but God blesses His children and gives the growth. The primary goal of the mission is to reach Old Colony Mennonites with the gospel of Jesus Christ. They live in a system of rigid rules and laws, and while they are God-fearing, they do not believe that one can be assured of one's salvation.

Jesus said, "Go into all the world!" This statement is more than just a request. Christians of every generation have heard these words. Jesus did not merely command them, but with His arrival He became the first missionary to people in need of salvation.
"And they went out and preached everywhere" (Mark 16:20). Jesus is the best example for the service of evangelism. His great love was the basis for His influential life (1 John 3:16).

I first heard from Bro. Jackson Rugendo in April, 2006. How surprised I was to receive an email from Kenya! How did these people know about the Church of God in Canada? Bro. Jackson shared with me later how he had taken his shoes to a cobbler for repair. There, a man told him about a periodical that he had received which he was convinced proclaimed the truth. The periodical was Foundation of Faith! At first Bro. Jackson was cautious. He asked a lot of questions about what I believed and what the Church of God stood for. Before long, we both rejoiced in being one in Christ! This was the beginning - a door opened by the Lord to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with precious souls in Kenya.

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.
