In the past, our main priority as we reached out to other nations was a focus on reaching unreached people groups of the world which represent over three billion people in this world (as per Joshua Project). Although our approach to global missions has not been limited to such groups, we’ve emphasized unreached people groups due to the fact that they represent the area of greatest evangelistic need before our Lord’s return.
In addition to that, there are several areas of the world where Gateway workers are doing a wonderful job loving their neighbours in places of great spiritual need. Praise the Lord that many people are being reached and restored to a relationship with Jesus.
Doug & Jan Taylor in Mexico
Doug and Jan have been ministering in Mexico since the beginning of 2001. They carry out Gateway’s work as our church planters and disciple makers as they teach, train and work relationally with several churches, ministries and other missionaries in Mazatlan (where they live), as well as in Cofradia (where they lived full time for over 8 years), Guadalajara, Durango and other locations such as Mexico City and surrounding areas. They further carry out Gateway’s work by teaching at conferences, seminars and courses on Marriage, Parenting, Youth, Relationships, Spiritual Warfare and Leadership Training. They are also very involved in counseling and mentoring.
Doug and Jan have also taught in many other locations around the world, including Salt & Light churches in Manitoba and United States. There are times and places that do not always feel safe for them and so they ask for your prayers and support.
If you would like to be in contact with them and receive their newsletters and prayer requests their email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Reinhard & Darcey Neufeld in Romania
In 2007, Gateway started a new mission outreach to the people of Romania through Reinhard & Darcey Neufeld. What started out as an annual short-term mission trip led by Reinhard and Darcey turned into a full-time ministry opportunity for Gateway. In 2009, Reinhard & Darcey moved to Romania and made their home in Rasa, a small Romanian village, where they currently minister among the poor and the needy there.
Since then, Reinhard & Darcey have seen God working beyond their expectations! They have set up a non-government organization called Gateway to Hope Romania (www.gatewaytohope.ca) through which all their outreach activities occur. A major project is the construction and development of the Rasa Family Center, which will be a shelter for abused women and children, as well as a home for women who do not want to abort their babies. Gateway to Hope also works in various villages in order to help to establish churches, and many people have come to know Jesus through this ministry.
Reinhard & Darcey would appreciate your prayers and support. If you would like to receive prayer e-mails, please contact them at email@example.com.
John & Doris Storey in Romania
John & Doris Storey are one of Gateway’s newest couples to join the Global Missions Team. In Sept 2015 they moved to Romania to help support Reinhard & Darcy Neufeld in their work with the poor and reaching the lost for Christ.
Doris brings with her, 28 years of experience working with children. She is nurturing & supporting abandoned and/or orphaned children in a nearby Hospital while also teaching young parents to raise children using Godly principals.
John is a tremendous “Jack-of-all-trades” and a vital help in the various construction projects happening though their ministry work with The Neufelds. John is also helping to mentor young men, preaching in villages, helping to organize food & firewood distribution to the poor. He has a sincere desire to help people break-free from addictions and find wholeness in Christ.
John & Doris would appreciate your prayers and support. To learn more about the work John and Doris are involved in, visit Gateway to Hope Romania‘s website at www.gatewaytohope.ca. If you would like to receive prayer e-mails, please contact them at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Peter & Evril Hagenlocher in Rwanda
Peter and Evril have been ministering in Rwanda since 2012. Gateway’s work there has focused on the area of Gizosi in the capital city of Kigali. They carry out Gateway’s work by training school teachers in principles of Christian education, by developing and teaching a bible curriculum for grades 1-6 primary school children, and by equipping people in family and marriage-related issues.
Peter & Evril would appreciate your prayers and support. If you would like to receive prayer e-mails, please contact them at email@example.com.
Our worker in South Asia
Gateway also has a worker living in South Asia working in various restricted-access nations. This worker has the joy of serving in support of many other workers who are reaching out to unreached people groups! This person is based in one particular restrictive country, and therefore also has the opportunity to reach out to neighbours who have no idea who Jesus is and to show them His love.
The Middle East and North Africa
Gateway’s vision to spread a passion for the glory of God through Jesus Christ to every nation & every generation also includes a unique outreach to the people of the Middle East and North Africa. We have seen tremendous response in this work through the use of the internet, websites and various social media tools. Our workers in this ministry (who we don’t want to name on this website) actively disciple and share the Gospel with those who are seeking to know and follow Jesus Christ. If you would like more information about this ongoing work, please contact us by phone.
Dan & Lisa Epp preparing for Southeast Asia
Dan & Lisa are presently preparing for work with JAARS, an aviation ministry that assists workers with Wycliffe Bible Translators in their work among extremely remote and unreached people groups. The Epps will be moving to Southeast Asia where Dan will be responsible for maintaining JAARS’ planes. Please be praying for them as they and their children get ready for an exciting change of scenery in 2017!
Roly & Cristina Grenier in West Africa
Roly and Cristina have been serving the Lord with WEC International in West Africa since 1994, and twenty of those years were focused on the training and mentoring of national pastors and leaders for the Evangelical and Pentecostal Churches of Equatorial Guinea.
They are presently based out of Tema, Ghana, and are the Africa Directors for ACTS 13, a WEC Regional Ministry with the vision of establishing Mission Mobilization Teams, recruiting and training cross-cultural workers, and partnering with churches in Africa in the sending out of their workers to the least-reached peoples in the region and beyond.
Roly and Cristina would appreciate your prayers and support. If you would like to receive prayer e-mails, and/or find out how you can become more involved in this ministry, please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
