Answering Life’s Questions
Winters are brutal and days are dark where IMB missionaries Robert and Sharon Pinkston live in Quebec. Hearts are dark too. “There are 8 million Quebecois, or French Canadians,” Robert said. “Before we ever got here, we had heard that only 40,000 of them—0.5 percent—believed in Christ.” But Robert says he believes that if Quebecois could just hear the gospel, they would respond. He’s been there 19 years, and every day he’s excited to get up and share the hope of Jesus all over again.
“We have heard women say, ‘I was miserable, I was blind, and I did not know where I was going. Now that I know Christ, it’s like the light came on and I have a direction in life,’” Kristin said. Team leaders and IMB missionaries David and Ann Boyter say God is doing incredible things among migrant workers like the ones Kristin and Rachel are discipling. Ann says she lives for the moments when people meet Jesus. “They’re enslaved to their religions, and when you see the light come on and people get the gospel, it’s amazing,” she said.
Your Prayers Transform Lives
- PRAY for missionaries like Robert and Sharon to be effective in strategizing ways to reach Quebec’s cities and college campuses with the gospel.
- PRAY for the hearts of the Quebecois to be open to the gospel as they search for truth.
