DOVE Canada Missionaries

Mark & Jerrilyn Jurgeneit
Base Directors, YWAM Muskoka, ON

We have successfully completed another Discipleship Training School with outreach to First Nations here in Canada. It is exciting to see God work through our ministry teams to bring reconciliation and healing to the First Nations here.

  • As we look to the future, this summer YWAM Muskoka is training the next generation of Christian leaders and missionaries to take the gospel to the nations or their own back yard and around the world. This year’s Mission Adventures students are high school aged. They will be partnering with their Heavenly Father, listen to His voice and spread the Good News near and far.
  • Our next school of Discipleship Training will be training students to shift the global atmosphere through Kingdom lifestyle living.
  • YWAM Muskoka is still praying and needing wisdom, as our facility is being stretched to its limits, and we need to find a larger place to host future schools.
  • On a personal note, pray for Mark’s dad, John, who is recovering from a stroke. We are believing for a full recovery; much healing has begun, but his right side is still very weak.

Ralph & Rebecca Margeson
Founders of Hope for Widows Ministry: Minden, Ontario

Praise God for His continual blessing on ministry that continues to flourish and bring the Hope of Jesus to widows and orphans in Manda, West Kenya. Unfortunately, Ralph and I have not returned to Kenya since March 2020 due to COVID-19. Thrive for Good (a ministry teaching organic farming) came to our HFW farm in Manda to teach 20 widows organic farming, and they received certificates for passing the “hands-on” test. HFW Ministry also has a new farm manager named Dan.

The HFW farm is running well and we request prayer for:

  • our Kenyan team to grow in unity and vision on future farming operations, which are needed to provide the financial support for widows and orphans as well as farming costs.
  • Dan and the Kenyan team as they work together on current and future farming plans and targets.
  • other Christian organizations to join HFW Ministry in helping our widows and orphans.
  • the community within Manda as well as local and provincial government to support our HFW ministry and farming projects.

Bob & Kim Wahl
YWAM Muskoka, Ontario

Pray for Bob and Kim:

  • to have wisdom and discernment in navigating through this unique season.
  • continued prayer for granddaughter Carissa (6 months), who is healing from open-heart surgery.
  • to ever draw closer to the Lord and grow a deep, healthy, godly legacy in our children and wonderful grandchildren.
  • to grow deeper relationships with our five married children and their families, our two teen daughters, and our sweet Chinese “daughter.”
  • to have wisdom in how best to pour into each of the seasons they are walking through and encourage them in a deeper walk with the Lord.

Pray for Bob and Kim in their leadership ministry with YWAM Muskoka.

Pray for:

  • for God to draw those He has chosen for our next Mission Adventure and DTS season, for both staff and students.
  • wisdom in setting up the speakers God has planned for the next DTS.
  • direction in the possible change of the physical location for YWAM Muskoka.
  • past and future staff and students to continue to go deeper with God and embrace the destiny that God has written for them from before time.
  • continued and creative discipleship of former students, especially those that continue to live in our region.

We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Hebrews 12:2 NLT
