It’s finally spring – there is warmth in the air and new life all around. Temperatures in our area are approaching 20 today and we’ll be out enjoying it. The last place I would think of traveling right now is somewhere north where there is still snow and ice. The weather today in the territory of Nunavut is -7 C with snow in the forecast for the weekend! Even with that in mind, we may consider planning a trip there sometime in the future.
We recently finished a 5-city tour in Ontario with Brian Doerksen – the first tour of the spring ’09 Unite Productions season. It was fun, successful, and we saw many lives touched with the power of the Holy Spirit.
There were several women at the Toronto evening who traveled pretty far to get to Brian’s concert. He may agree it’s the furthest distance anyone ever came to hear him. It took them several days and multiple planes to travel 2630 kilometers from Pangnirtung, Nunavut. Look at this map, and you can see it takes a lot of effort to travel anywhere from Pangnirtung, Nunavut. But they made it, and after an incredible evening of singing and worship, they had the opportunity to spend some time with Brian.
Now that we’re home, we’ve received an invitation to bring Brian and his team to Pangnirtung for a worship event. The pastors of 2 local churches and the mayor have given their blessing for them to come. I don’t know yet what we’ll do, but we will be open to travel to the far north to encourage believers and share the love of Jesus. It’s exciting to see the doors open to opportunities we never would have imagined.
