If you are new to this site then we welcome you. Please look around. We keep things fairly simple here so you should have no problems navigating to each area of interest. If you are returning to see what’s new then welcome back friends.
You will note that we now have a new tab at the top of the page, Who We Are, which gives a little more background information about NGM. We are also publishing this as a flyer to give out at meetings or for individuals who are interested in obtaining a paper copy to hand out. Please let us know if you would like one or more copies by contacting our Secretary Roger . Or you can even cut and paste the text to your own word processor as long as you copy the entire document and make no changes except to add the web address prior to printing .
In other news, new to many of you perhaps, there are some important changes coming to NGM. Recently Gus Schlamp informed the Board of NGM that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson’t disease. He expressed that this came as no surprise to him since he had been suspecting something was wrong for some time now. At the Board meeting held in November of 2015 (prior to his diagnosis), Gus had made a suggestion that the Board members for NGM should begin to pray regarding God’s choice of a replacement for him as President of the Mission and Chairman of the Board. At the time the Board did not make finding a replacement an official task but did begin to bring this matter before the Lord to let Him decide on the direction we needed to take.
At our most recent meeting held on June 4th of 2016 this matter became an official priority. Prior to this meeting a couple came to the attention of the Board who seem perfectly suited to candidate for the position. A meeting has been set for Sunday, July 10th, 2016 in Manitoba for a formal, face to face interview of this couple after which time we will update this page to include their names. Whatever happens, Gus will continue to hold the position of President and Chairman until the process is complete.
Since the Board consists of members Living all across Western Canada we would ask that you PRAY for safe travel for us. Also PRAY that the Board Members will be discerning of God’s will in the whole process.
Thank you all again for your support.
As time and circumstance allows we will look forward to meeting with as many of you as possible in person. Please contact us if you would like a representative to visit your church or fellowship group. We do our best to accommodate all requests.
Remember to visit this page from time to time. An upcoming feature we hope to add over the summer months is a page to introduce you to our Bolivian partners in ministry. We hope to have recent photos and bio’s of each one so you can get a little closer to the actual work.
