Dear Friends,

One of our dear believers, Gilla Turgeon passed away on
Gilla and Michel Turgeon
Danielleange and daugter Kassindy
Tuesday after complications from open heart surgery.  She was only 64 years old.  The funeral will be held tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time at our church.  There will be many family members present who do not know the Lord.  Here in Québec, the funeral of a believer is a wonderful opportunity to proclaim Christ.  Since Gilla knew that she might not make it through the surgery, she sat down with us ahead of time to plan the funeral service knowing that it would be a means of evangelism.  She put much effort into a written testimony of salvation that will be read publicly and is included in the program that will be distributed to those who attend. Will you pray specifically for the following:

1. That the Gospel will go forth with clarity and power through the music, the eulogies, Gilla's own testimony, and Mikes message from Job 19:23-27

2. That edifying contact will be made with believers who were once a part of the work here but moved to other churches, or abandoned church attendance altogether during the problems of the past.  We are saddened by lingering hostilities, critical spirits, and jealousies among so many of the first generation believers in Quebec City.  As you know, God has called us here to rebuild, and we take that calling very seriously.  We long to see God's healing balm of Grace at work in these situations! This is a vision that Gilla Turgeon shared with us.

There is so much more to say but time is short.  Catherine continues to do well but still needs to learn more in the area of physical limitations.  Our first team arrives on Monday from Oak Ridge Baptist Church in Tennessee.
We are ever thankful for your prayer support!
In Christ,
