Our small team of Brad Mayer and Matthieu Desourdis ministered 21 times in just 10 full days in the Philippines at the end of February. We preached in numerous churches, prisons, schools, to youth, and to leaders. God opened many doors as we saw over 200 come to Christ and hundreds more were ministered to in regards to the call to evangelize.
When we saw a young gifrl come into one of the services we ministered in with a cast on both her legs with a bar between her feet, Matthieu mentioned that he knew a bit about what that was like as he also wore a brace like this on his legs when he was a child. Matthieu prayed for the little girl and within just a couple of days, the casts came off. Freely he received, freely he gave.
A young man named Dino found his way into a service in Bacolod, Philippines where his life was changed. After a message about the miraculous, the faith of the people was stirred up, and a Filipino believer prayed with Dino three times after the service. After the third prayer, Dino put down his crutches and walked without them for the first time in sixteen years! To see a video of this man taking his first steps without crutches in many years, check out www.facebook.com/canadianfiremissions and find the post from March 3, 2018.

Canada's North is a vast missions field with many communities that need the Gospel. It was a blessing in November and December to minister in Loon Lake and Thunderchild churches. Both of these churches impact many First Nations people.
In September 2017, many local churches were impacted in the beautiful East African nation of Tanzania. Home to Mount Kiliminjaro (Africa's highest mountain), the Serengeti plains, and the historic island of Zanzibar, Tanzania has 45 million precious people who live in one of the world's poorest nations. Over a million children have been orphaned there because of AIDS. Good news is greatly needed in a land that has seen political corruption, drug abuse, immoral behaviour, witchcraft and a sense of helplessness. God calls us to bring the Gospel to 'the least of these.'
Lives were touched in the cities of Dar Es Salaam and Arusha, where we were able to minister to many influential business and political leaders, teaching them about evangelism and leadership. One of our crusade meetings was broadcast across the nation over the radio, and open doors of favour showed God's hand on this trip. Thank you for your prayers as we made some powerful divine connections for future ministry in this nation.
