Meet the Team

We have settled into our new home and are ready to begin.  We thought we should introduce you to our team.  One of the gifts of this assignment is that we have co-workers, and we seek to work together with them, yet with some independent ministries.  Well, let us introduce to you our team:
John & Connie
Our team leaders are John & Connie Reimer (sending church: Swan River, Adopted church: Pleasant Valley).  The Reimer's arrived first and scouted the city for a place to begin a work and bathed the work in prayer. They have the added task of giving leadership to our team as well as starting cells.  They have been very helpful in introducing us to Guadalajara and helping us settle in.  We are looking forward to meeting one of their 'cells' tonight for the first time. 

Dallas, Tara, Carter, Logan, Brady
Dallas and Tara Wiebe (sending church: Kleefeld EMC, adopted church: Stoneybrook Fellowship) joined the Reimer's after beginning their missionary career in Delicias, Chihuahua.  They have settled into life here in GDL with their 3 boys and have also started a cell.  We have enjoyed reconnecting with them, as they were both former students of Ernie's, back in his early years at Steinbach Bible College.  

Our (Ernie & Diane) sending church: Evangelical Fellowship Church, adopted church: Mount Salem.  So this is our team, 3 couples, with 3 kids.  We have already had a few meals together, a staff meeting, a prayer time or two, and Friday they are coming to our house to pray over it, commit it to God's plan, and then we will do a prayer walk through our 'coto' (the name used here for a gated community).  We have already met the neighbour ladies on either side of our house and anticipate meeting many more. Ernie has also quickly become friends with the men at the guard house.

We have already seen that God has prepared the way long before we arrived.  We have sensed His presence, seen His hand, and felt confirmation of His plan.  We are excited about what God is going to do here in GDL, in and through us.  We invite you to join us in our journey as you pray us onward.  Know that you are welcome to come for a visit any time. 


  1. This is such a wonderful update. I am glad that you have felt God near and that everything has fallen into place so nicely.
    May you be richly blessed by your ministry there. I really enjoy your blog updates!

    1. Thanks Jody, I am so amazed at our journey I have no trouble posting each week. My goal is to make sure our readers feel a part of this ministry. Let me know if there is something you want to know.
