Derksen January 2017 Update

Dear Family & Friends,

We trust that this year has begun well for you.  Here are some of our comings/goings as we launched this year.

Our first trip for the year was to Mexico City where the TeachBeyond Mexico and the BridgeWay North American School boards met (http://www.bridgewaymexico.com/).  We celebrated the signing of a new rental contract for our location, and made some significant strides forward in our board decisions.  Please continue to pray for us as a board and for our director, David Brownrigg, as significant work (including fund raising) needs to happen in the next few months to be ready to launch in August 2017.

This is the courtyard of BridgeWay North American School – our CMA Canada leader, Brem Frentz, is praying a blessing over the school.

After the board meetings our Regional Leadership Team came to Mexico City for our annual meetings – coming from Venezuela, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Canada.  We took the Kairos Course (http://kairoscourse.ca/), along with the Canadian Pacific District leadership team and some BC pastors.  What a great week of learning and hanging together.

Michelle then stayed on in Mexico City for another course – Developing a Discerning Heart, used to disciple women leaders.  She had a great time with some of our teammates and leaders from Venezuela, Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, US, and Canada.

Mexico City is an amazing place with about 23 million (greater city area) plus people.

Thank you for following this blog and spending a few minutes praying for us and those we work with.  We are thrilled to be part of such a high quality team.

Murray & Michelle
