THE 2019 FALL JOSHUA JOURNEY WEEK NINE!!

Well, this is the final week of the Fall Joshua Journey for 2019. Lord willing, Rev Don will continue in ministry at the Pilot Flying J in Headingley, MB through the end of the week. Then he will head home to Ontario for a much needed rest. God has been good and Rev Don has had many opportunities to meet more new and old friends and looks forward to what the Lord is going to do in the last few days that remain for this trip. Please pray for Rev Don as he continues the Joshua Journey through the end of the week and then as he heads home on the road.

 

 

The 2019 Fall Joshua Journey Week Six through Eight! So, the last couple of weeks have been rather hectic and it seems hard to imagine at this time of the year, but the weather created a major challenge for the fall Joshua Journey this year. Snow storm after snow storm, from BC to Manitoba, it just kept coming and preventing Rev Don from making it to Medicine Hat, Saskatchewan. As a result, the decision was made to head further east — to Headingley, Manitoba, in hopes that he could move past the weather. Also, Rev Don decided to stay out on the road beyond the original end date of October 12th, and to extend the trip for another week. In doing so, he and Suzanne missed spending their anniversary together, something they try to do each year.

Despite all the challenges, God blessed in unexpected ways, allowing for training, “hiring” and meetings with volunteers and staff. In addition, Rev Don still met lots of drivers — especially when they were all forced off the road by the weather and road closures. Many opportunities to minister to the men and women in trucking were available and Rev Don took those opportunities as they came. Praise the Lord! 

 

The 2019 Fall Joshua Journey Week Five. Rev Don was at the Edmonton, AB, at the Pilot Flying J Travel Center (#791), from Sept. 22nd – 27th. He got back on the road after a couple of hickups with the truck and trailer and spent the week being encouraged by fellow believers stopping by and meeting some new friends as well. In addition, he did some interviews for volunteer chaplains for the future, permanent chapel in Edmonton and was able to welcome Will Fraser on board as part of the team. Praise the Lord! Welcome aboard Will!

 

The 2019 Fall Joshua Journey Week Four. Rev Don was at the Saskatoon, SK, Pilot Flying J Travel Center (#791), from Sept. 11th – 16th. It was a great week, meeting many friends and a new brother in the Lord! There were some challenges with equipment, but the Lord came through and supplied all our need. Thank you for your prayers and continued support. We can’t do this ministry without you and we appreciate all that you do.

 

The 2019 Fall Joshua Journey Week Three. Rev Don was at the Balgonie, SK, Pilot Flying J Travel Center (#863), from Sept. 2nd – 8th. It was a little slower week, but God is good and he still had opportunities to share the love of Jesus with many. All is in God’s timing and will. We’re just grateful for the way that God has supplied the means for the ministry to be involved with men and women in the Trucking Industry. Thanks to you for your continued prayers and financial support. God bless each of you!

 

The 2019 fall Joshua Journey, Week Two. Rev Don was at the Winnipeg Pilot Flying J Travel Center (#788), from Aug 25-30th. It was a good week with seeing many people. Some were old friends that shared encouragement and a cup of coffee. Others were new to the idea of God caring about them. It’s amazing to watch God work in the lives of the people we meet. Won’t you allow Him to bless you and change your life? Stay safe out there on the road!

 

Fall 2019 Joshua Journey Week One. Rev Don was at the Pilot Flying J Travel Center in Ste. Agathe, Manitoba from Aug 19-23rd. He had an excellent week with visits from new friends and old. It was wonderful to get to know folks better and to be able to share some prayer time together. God is making a difference in peoples’ lives. He cares for each and every one of His children.

 

The 2019 Fall Joshua Journey En Route!! It was nearing the end of August, and we received this email update from Rev Don on his first few days on the road to Ste Agathe, MB. Please keep him in prayer as he travels, as well as the people he encounters. They are the reason we are on the road: “We exisit in trucking to win, teach and equip our world to passionately follow Jesus Christ“. Thank you and God bless you!
 
Never a dull moment on the trip west. With the Lord’s guidance I travelled through much major road construction. The truck and the chapel were now covered in caked-on road dirt. Stopped to visit a friend and supporter. He was in the process of washing his trucks and he gave the truck and chapel a spotless wash job. Thank you Lord.
 
Stopped in Longlac, Ontario, for tea and talked with a driver just recovering from hitting 2 moose with his truck. He was waiting for a tow truck as there was much major damage. It turned out that he was from Orillia. On my departure, I asked him if I could pray for him, his family and getting his truck repaired. His response was “by all means”. He took my business card and said that he would talk to me later.
 
Stopped for fuel and an older gentleman introduced himself to me. He was a Christian and was glad to see us reach people for the Lord. As I left, a fuel attendant gave me a thumbs up, he also was a Christian.
 
Carried on to Pass Lake Pilot Flying J (near Pass Lake, Ontario), where my plan was to have a quick lunch and get back on the road to make up my lost time. Met an Erb driver and we enjoyed lunch together. Prayed for him before he departed.
 
I went in to visit with the chaplain at the chapel at this location. I encouraged him and prayed with him. Three hours later I am back on the road west to Winnipeg.
 
Sometimes it is hard to believe some of the situations the Lord brings across my path. Please continue to pray for safety on the road and that I would continue to hear His small voice directing me.
 
Thank you, Rev Don.
