Baker Lake final service

Baker Lake

It’s hard to believe we just completed the final service of our Arctic mission before I journey home and Luke travels to Arviat for an area-wide youth conference.

Luke considered it an honour to be invited again to play the drums with the team, and overcame the challenge of adjusting to the unique rhythm and style of Inuit worship. Later, when he began to play his guitar and lead the congregation in “I Exalt Thee”, the presence of the Lord swept through the place, as people raised their hands and worshipped. It set the atmosphere for all that God was about to accomplish in the service. It was in this atmosphere that the visiting pastor from Rankin Inlet led in a very special time of prayer for you, our partners, in her Inuktitut language, that the Holy Spirit would greatly bless each one who had so generously sowed into the mission, and had upheld each service in prayer.
Just as we’d done in each community we visited, Luke distributed wonderful teaching material that had been generously provided by Billye Brim Ministries. In each place we always ensured that the elders were blessed with the material first, in case there wasn’t enough for the entire congregation. Honouring elders is an important part of Inuit culture, and the people were touched that we followed their example.

As I preached on The Fire of God, I could almost tangibly sense His fire igniting in the hearts of the people. The leaders told us later that even some who would normally not respond to the message, were hungrily entering into all the Lord was doing.

It was a particularly significant night for Luke. God has been doing some mighty things in this young man’s spirit as he has ministered throughout this trip, and has supernaturally knit his heart with the Inuit youth. As the service was concluding, the congregation gathered around, laid their hands on him, and poured into him, believing that as he goes to Arviat to minister to the youth, the Lord will use him mightily to spark a fire of revival in their lives.
