Stories, practical resources & thought-provoking articles to help mobilize God's people in Canada to be fruitfully engaged with God, on mission.
Explore the inspiring journey of Loving Muslims Together in their mission that every Muslim in Canada would have a Christian friend who was companioning them in a journey of exploration and discovery about Jesus Christ—whether Jesus is a prophet (as claimed in Islam) or whether he is the Son of God, the Saviour of the world (as claimed by Christians).
This article recounts a pivotal moment at a conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where the author's search for nearby mosques sparked a realization of the need to re-evaluate their approach. Discover how LMT's vision evolved, aiming for every mosque community to have at least one church community praying for it…

I don’t like to run. My experience of running is that I’m short of breath, sweaty & hot, and there’s a voice in my head telling me to STOP!!!!
Recently, while praying for Muslims in Canada during Ramadan, an image popped into my mind, (a not-infrequent experience when I’m praying).
The image was of a person running along a road that stretched into the distance. They were running in a long-distance race that was called ‘Journey of Discovery’. Actually, there were quite a few runners, but they each were running alone.
I noticed that at some points in the race there were people cheering the runners on, encouraging them and spurring them to keep going. At other points in the race there were refreshment stations where the runners could receive nourishment for the next leg of the race. Sometimes people would run alongside the racers, keeping pace with them, encouraging them to keep running.
Some runners kept running strong. Some runners who were faltering were encouraged by the cheering, and the nourishment, and the companionship they received. Some runners slowed to a walk. Some stopped altogether and left the race...
5 Questions to Consider as you Build Cross-Cultural Friendships.
Vanilla describes many of our childhoods: Food was predictable, community was homogenous, and the exotic or unusual was reserved for travelogue shows on TV. Join the author as she shares her journey to reconsider the world and our place in it through the lens of cross-cultural friendships.
As the Sikh community celebrates Vaisakhi (a spring harvest festival) beginning April 13th/14th, would you join us in praying that the Lord of the Harvest will produce much fruit among them?
In this article, Lorna shares some basics about the Sikhism, and a prayer guide to help you pray for the Sikh people.
If you look through the wrong end of a telescope, rather than enlarging your view, the telescope actually shrinks and distorts what you see. If the viewer didn’t know better, it would be possible to believe that what was being seen from the wrong end of the telescope is the correct view. But viewing from the other end, a whole new understanding opens up and is enlarged. What has been hidden becomes clear.
If you were an astronomer observing someone looking at the stars through the wrong end of a telescope, could you resist telling them the right way to truly see the fullness of God’s beautiful celestial canopy?
If you are a lover of Jesus Christ, forgiven and cleansed from your sins, and made right with God, can you resist telling your Muslim friends and neighbours of the fullness of all that God has already accomplished for them, and the freedom and hope they can enjoy in walking with Jesus?
In the census data that was recently released on population, Statistics Canada reported that “millions of people from all over the world have chosen, and continue to choose, Canada as their new home. In 2021, more than 8.3 million people, or almost one-quarter (23.0%) of the population, were, or had ever been, a landed immigrant or permanent resident in Canada.”
It is clear to me that God has created a huge opportunity for Christians to share the gospel with the world in Canada; the nations of the world are in our neighbourhoods.
Have you ever considered that those of Muslim faith who live among us might have been sent by God to Canada in order to find Him?
Here are 5 ways to be intentional about making disciples in your neighbourhood among those of Muslim faith ...
A story from a Muslim Background Believer and a church who prayed for the mosque in their community.
Imagine getting this email:
“My name is Rachael. I am a born-again Christian of 2 years. I actually used to be a Shia Muslim. I attended the mosque on your street for many years of my life. The Lord pulled me out of the darkness of my former life as a Muslim and brought me into His loving light...
I recently heard that your church prays specifically for salvation over people at the mosque. Is this true? If so, I’m not sure how long your church has been doing this, but I wanted to email you as an encouragement to you and your congregation to let you know that the Lord has heard your prayers and is AT work in this Muslim community.
I thank you and your congregation for committing to pray for your neighbours. It is funny to me how not once in my years of attendance at this mosque had they ever thought of praying for your church! I guess the proof is in the pudding. If you’re not filled with perfect love--how can you pour out perfect love? My heart yearns for them to know how much God actually loves them, that God would shatter the scales over their eyes, and lead them to take their seats as Children of God in the house of our Father.”
