Praise God for the results of mobilization mentorship in Canada. Three years ago, Melissa with the OMF Canada team piloted a short-term workers follow-up program helping them process their trip and discern next steps in their journey. Since then, 15 alumni have become key volunteers. Jimmy is developing this program further, expanding its scope to all who are seriously considering the call to missions. There are now 20 mentees and 5 mentors. Pray on for Spirit-guided discipleship. Pray also the development of appropriate materials.
