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

Over the last year we have seen tremendous growth within Hope for Widows and Orphans Ministry located in Manda, western Kenya, since it began in 2015. We and our Hope for Widow team are truly grateful to God as He continues to bless and provide different ways in helping widows and orphans through Hope for Widows ministry. In late 2022, God provided funds to enable us to add two new income-generation projects at our Hope for Widows Farm. We now have two new income-generating projects: bee hives/bee keeping and a fish pond. Both of these new projects have started producing honey and fish for sale. The sale proceeds go towards farm operation expenses, PLUS provide funds for medical care and food for 200+ widows and orphans. Pray with us for God’s direction and provision in helping widows and orphans as we consider expanding this ministry wherever God opens doors.

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 backyard and around the world. This year’s Mission Adventures students are high-school aged. They will be partnering with their Heavenly Father, listening to His voice, and spreading the Good News near and far.
  • Our next Discipleship Training School 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.

Bob & Kim Wahl
YWAM Muskoka, Ontario

Pray for Bob and Kimberly to:

  • have wisdom and discernment for fresh vision as we seek God for the future
  • ever draw closer to the Lord and grow a deep, healthy, godly legacy in our children and wonderful grandchildren
  • grow deeper relationships with our five married children and their families, our two teen daughters, and our close friend from China
  • 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:

  • God to draw those He has chosen for our next mission season, for both staff and students
  • direction in the possible change of the physical location for YWAM Muskoka
  • past and future staff and students to continue going 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
