From Airport to Cemetery: How to Live Successfully in Our Adopted Homeland

I used to say, "A suitcase is the greatest equalizer of immigrants."

We all arrived in Canada with only two suitcases. Regardless of our social, political, military, or even financial and educational status in our homeland, we arrived to start a new life.

In September 1981, my wife, our 3-year-old girl, and I arrived at Vancouver International Airport en route to Regina, Saskatchewan. We traveled thousands of miles from Manila, Philippines ...

A Church Story: Living in Deep Community as Disciples of Jesus

At Outreach Canada, we love to share stories, and today we are excited to share this story from a church in Canada: South Delta Baptist Church in Delta, British Columbia. 

Paul Park, the Lead Pastor at South Delta Baptist Church, is spearheading a growing Korean language speaking congregation within SDBC. Pastor Park's bilingual skills and passion for making disciples are the catalyst for uniting all who attend to engage and support this multilingual staff and congregation.

We are excited to share this story from this Canadian church - as it touches on key themes that are core to Outreach Canada: disciple-making; innovation in ministry; and Diaspora in Canada.

10 Ways to Pray for Diaspora in Canada

Diaspora are those people who have dispersed or spread from their original homeland. By that definition, most of us living in Canada are diaspora, but the term is generally used to describe recent migrants, their children, and grandchildren.

People migrate to Canada willingly (for a better future) or unwillingly (to escape calamity). They may have come from a country where there are more churches and Christians than we have in Canada, or they may come from a place where they would never have met a Christian or heard about Jesus Christ.

The diaspora story in Canada is complex and full of opportunity; so let’s pray!
