LOCATION: Malawi, Africa
MINISTRY FOCUS: Jeremiah and Diana will be serving in Malawi in partnership with the Village of Hope as the completion of Jeremiah's Cultural Studies degree through Summit Pacific Bible College. With both of these individuals’ hearts focused on youth and children’s work, Village of Hope's support network will be a great short-term trip for this newlywed couple (as of Nov 11th). In their three months stay, this couple will take on both the administrative, social, and labour requirements that the position entails, as they will both be fully involved in working with the kids, doing what takes they can in the construction of the new classrooms, and learning the administrative aspects of global organizations.
MINISTRY HISTORY: Jeremiah's ministry experience started in Northern Ontario working with the Oji-Cree people running children's camps in Northern reserves. As he learned to discern his calling, he took part in a trip to South-East Asia where he better learned his calling to global work. Since then, he has been a youth pastor in Aldergrove, BC for the last 2.5 years, as well as taking an interim Associate Pastor position during a season of Covid.
Diana also found her heart for serving at a young age and saw her hands and heart best used as she cared for youth and children nationally and internationally. With 18 countries of ministry under her belt, Diana has faithfully served at her church's youth group as she waited for God to give her the go-ahead to go back into ministry overseas.
YOUR IMPACT: Through your partnership, Jeremiah and Diana will be able to disciple, equip, and mentor the youth and children within the VOH network.
- That their new marriage would grow and prosper with a united desire to serve together in ministry.
- That their transition back into Canada would be smooth as Diana will need a job in order to start her immigration into Canada from the USA.
- For God to place a country and a people on both of their hearts to guide them into a long-term term global working placement
- For God to bless the Villages of Hope and their staff as they expand their reach and capability in their community.
