Our names are James & Carolanne. We have two kids and we live in Chilliwack, BC.
We believe that God loves every person in this world passionately and longs to see each one return to a right relationship with Himself. In the sacrifice of Christ He made a way for each of us to be reconciled to Himself. As followers of Christ, we have been given the task of sharing the message of His love and plan for salvation with those who are still lost.
People around the world today are hungry for answers and are searching for them on the Internet. (online) We have the chance to provide them with those answers. This is such an amazing opportunity! The people are coming to us! We simply need the ability to provide the answers they seek and respond to them in love.
I (James) work with a ministry called The Life Project. In answer to this problem, our ministry responds in the following three ways.
- We provide websites with the information that the people are looking for.
- We encourage the people on those websites to enter into a more personal discussion with our team.
- We train mentors, volunteers and churches to respond to these people and encourage them to take the next steps in their journey towards knowing God.
The impact of this strategy has been incredible. Literally every day we hear about how someone across the world prayed to accept Jesus, or was built up in their faith, or was encouraged to go out and share their testimony as a result of the mentor speaking into their life. We have conversations with people in India, China, Afghanistan, Iran… not to mention those in the western, more accessible countries.
This is what gets me up in the morning. This is what really makes everything worth it. God is doing mighty things in and through this ministry. He has placed us on the leading edge of this mission field and has been using us in amazing ways.
As Technical Director, I (James) am responsible for much of the back-end code required to make the websites work properly. I manage a small team with one other programmer and a designer, as well as doing quite a lot of programming myself. Together, we create the programs and website systems that allow this ministry to take place. Together, we serve the larger team who put the words and articles on the websites and who manage the even larger team of mentors and volunteers.
Is your heart and passion to have your life make a difference for eternity? Would you consider being a part of this mission?
We would love to have you join our support team! I can think of no other online evangelism strategy as effective as this one in reaching people around the world with the message of hope in Christ. If you want your money to make a difference for eternity, I firmly believe that supporting this ministry is the way to do it.
