In the past, our team has gone on mission trips to Thailand in partnership with Imagine Thailand, a Thai-Canadian humanitarian aid organization. The main purpose of our trip was to increase the team’s global awareness through service in an international missions context, while championing and building momentum for the work of our mission’s partners. In Thailand our work focused on community development through teaching ESL, building relationship with elementary and university-aged students, as well as some involvement in various relief and development initiatives.
Each year, a key component of our team’s ministry experience is serving at the main Christian high school in the Comox Valley, Phil and Jennie Gaglardi Academy, where we serve as ministry leaders and oversee the high school chapels, campus events, and student leadership. Phil and Jennie Gaglardi Academy has been the premier elementary and secondary school institution for Christian education at a K-12 level in the Comox Valley for the last 30+ years. We consider it a privilege to be serve the students at Phil and Jennie Gaglardi in the capacity that we do!
In 2020, our team was prepared to go to Chennai, India in partnership with Living God Church. Although we were unable to proceed with our trip, we were still able to fundraise $10,000 to go towards the children’s ministry at Living God Church. In 2006, Christo and Sarah obeyed the call of God, moved to Chennai, India and planted Living God Church with just a handful of people. Today, the church has over 500 members and has a heart to see lives completely transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Although we were not able to partner with this ministry in person, we were thankful that we were still able to support this thriving church.
