Mission Ottawa / New England - Part 1

Eight days on the road -

Six flights across North America -

Four days each in Ottawa, Canada and Providence, Rhode Island -

Two loving and gracious host families -

One glorious gospel proclaimed -

Now that Mission Ottawa / New England is over and Vernon Costolo and I are reunited with our families, we look back and rejoice and give glory to God over the last week recalling the wonderful friends we made along the way, the places we have been and seen as well as the many chances we had to share the gospel, either one-to-one with people, or by the open-air opportunities we had with the multitudes.

I was personally blessed to hear God glorifying street preaching from the likes of Mike Stockwell, Robert S. Gray and Chris Sippley of JeremiahCry Ministries. God gave me many one-to-one conversations where I had the honor and privilege of personally of sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. God also allowed me many opportunities to proclaim the gospel to multitudes of people via open-air.

This posting is just a quick overview of our four days in Ottawa. Tomorrow I will give a quick overview of our four days in the New England area.

Over the next week or so, I will post stories of our evangelism mission trip in both Ottawa and the New England area. Stories that I hope will encourage you and embolden you to share your faith with strangers who, unless they hear the gospel, have no hope in this world or the eternity to come. I will also share many more pictures and maybe a video or two.....maybe I will even share with you my first encounter with a Beavertail and some Dutch Babies  ;-)

Soli Deo Gloria!

Mission Ottawa / New England

In just a few short days (June 21st), Vernon Costolo (Proclaiming The Truth) and I will be on our way to Ottawa, Canada to proclaim the gospel with Paul and Kim Latour (The Word Street Journal). This is a mission evangelism trip that Vernon has made for the past three years and, praise God, I have been blessed to make the event with him this year.

After spending four days on the Ottawa streets, we will make our way to the New England states to meet up with other street evangelists and proclaim the gospel in Plymouth, Boston, Providence and other areas before returning back home June 28th.

Here is a brief itinerary:

I humbly ask for your prayers -

Pray for God to be glorified. Pray that He uses us mightily for His Kingdom. Pray for many to repent and put their faith in Christ alone for salvation. Pray for our health and endurance. And, again, pray for God to be glorified in all that we do and say.
God bless and Soli Deo Gloria -
Your brother in Christ,
Wayne Albrecht
