Will & Dorothy Rogers Newsletter

It is harvest time here in Canada. We’ve driven through miles and miles of prairie country filled with great fields of grain. Despite a fairly small population, Canada is the 6th largest producer of wheat in the world and about half of that is grown right here in Saskatchewan. As the fields rolled by, we saw huge machines working hard to bring in the harvest. It is a big operation with many moving parts, from field to silo to railcars.
Sadly, the spiritual harvest is not as robust, though it is much more precious. Many of the people in the church here can remember better spiritual times for the area, but now in numerous communities churches are closing or are without leadership. The land is falling under the sway of liberal social change, to the point where one teacher said that she faces a crisis of conscience over      being forced to teach little children concerning ‘gender-choices’.
But there is still a harvest! God is still working!  God is still moving the parts together to gather souls! We believe that is what God is doing here.
We are very thankful for George & Betty Lewis and the church-planting work that God is using them to do. The people working with them are solid believers who are filled with hope and enthusiasm. We have done our best to encourage them and make their hearts strong for the harvest-work that lies ahead. It is not yet time to quit! The people welcomed us and our message with open arms and open hearts. This land can still produce a bountiful harvest!

* God-willing, our next letter will come to you from Zambia in southern Africa! Please PRAY for our safe travel there.
* Please keep our daughter, Sharon, and her family in prayer. Her health is still not good, but she has a great attitude. PRAY that God will grant relief to her inflammation and pain. We are very thankful to be able to spend a couple weeks with our grandchildren before we leave Canada. We are currently in Fort St. John, British Columbia where Sharon lives.

As always, we thank God for your faithful prayers and support,

Will & Dorothy
