New Volunteers
at Western Tract Mission

Tina Dyck

I remember going to Sunday School from my earliest recollection. I loved it - and especially if my teacher used flannelgraph - it made the Bible stories so interesting.

I heard God's Word in church and at home. I wanted to become a Christian, but it took until I was 13 years old before, at an evangelistic service in our church, I made that decision.

As a child I struggled with my feelings. I often doubted my salvation because I didn't feel saved. How wonderful it was for me when I was taught the truth - that my salvation did not depend on my feelings but on what Christ had done for me. John 5:24 became very important to me.

"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My Word and believes in him Who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgement, but has passed from death unto life."

I am thankful for my years at Bible School. They were important years of growth where I was grounded in my faith.

Then in the school of life - I am beginning the role of being a grandma now - so there have been many and varied experiences where I have had the opportunity to continue growing and maturing. God's Word has become very precious to me. More and more I realize God's Word is truth. We can trust and depend on Him.

As I am becoming involved with Western Tract Mission, I am impressed with the outreach it represents. The thousands of name stickers we put on "Reflections" showed me that it's being read across Canada. As I mark the Mailbox lessons that come in from students, I realize what a valuable tool this is. I appreciate the weekly prayer meetings where we seek God's face on behalf of the many prayer needs that come to our attention.

I am wanting to get involved with Western Tract Mission because I believe it is effective in getting God's Word to people.

Archie Loewen - Board Chairman

John 1:12 says, "But to as many as received Him, to them he gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name." What a tremendous gift from God that we can be His child! Eph. 2:8 tells us that salvation is based on God's grace through faith, not on something we merit in ourselves, but rather it's a free gift from God. I accepted this free gift of salvation from God in my mid-teens. The Lord has led me to attend several years of Bible School and then into the teaching profession.

During my thirty years of teaching, the Lord has made it possible for me to serve Him in a number of churches in the community in which I was teaching. A real highlight during those years was the opportunity to serve on the Timber Bay Children's Home Board for some twenty years. First, as the chairman of the provisions committee, and then towards the end as the chairman of the full board. The Lord saw it first that the children's home cease to operate and then that NCEM take over the site and take it in a new direction.

I joined the WTM team several years ago to help mail out tracts for Impact Canada. Last March I was asked to serve on the board with WTM. At that time I took over the role of Board Chairman. I ask for your prayers as the Board continues to move ahead to get Gospel tracts into the hands of needy people with your help.

Here are some goals, the Lord willing, that I would like to see happen:

  • The WTM building needs some interior insulating and repair which needs to be done this Fall before the cold weather sets in.

  • WTM is always in need of more finances to maintain present programs as well as to add new programs, tracts and staff support.

  • More volunteer workers to serve at WTM and its programs.

I'm thankful to God for the opportunities that He has given me throughout my life. I am trusting the Lord for His guidance and wisdom to make the most of this present opportunity.

We would be happy to get your questions or feedback
