Offering New Life


Our association with LifeLight Ministries started three years ago when our youth group planned a yard sale. The young people were trained to share the gospel with those who came to browse or buy. It was a blessed day, and they gave out 176 LifeLight NTs and other Scripture portions. The $1200 that was raised was given to The Sanctuary, a Christian home for the homeless. We have used the easy-to-read LifeLight NTs since then for outreach.
In September we started a new assembly, New Life Bible Chapel, in Mississauga, Ontario. We are located in an area that has a large immigrant population, many of whom have never had the opportunity to hear the gospel. Our two main goals in starting this church are to reach out to the community with the gospel of Christ and to see Christians grow spiritually. Here again the Scriptures from LifeLight Ministries come in handy.
Prayerfully, we are putting together five hundred gift bags, each containing a copy of The LifeLight, a gospel CD, a Jesus DVD, a tract and our contact address.
As a church we are praying that we would be channels through whom God’s Word can reach the untouched hearts in our community, and we thank God for the faithful partnership of LifeLight Ministries in this important outreach. …my Word…shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it (Isaiah 55:11) is God’s attestation to the power of His Word.
