Portage la Prairie, Manitoba
GME Agent: Myrna Buhr
And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is My disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.
Immigrant Ministries was birthed in 2008 after what seemed to be a chance encounter with an Israeli woman. Afterward, Myrna Buhr felt God calling her to minister to the immigrant population.
Within a few years, she had met many newcomers from a variety of countries and the ministry was growing. Myrna is a jack of all trades, helping with a wide variety of needs. She refers people toward trustworthy tradespeople; collects furniture and household goods; helps with apartment and house hunting; organizes game nights, hayrides, tobogganing, gym events, Christmas parties, activity days at the farm, English classes for adults and children, and cooking classes.
At every event the Gospel is presented. In all that God has given her to do, she has learned to grab every opportunity to speak to people about Christ. Myrna has copies of “Find God” New Testaments, and she invites recipients to call her with any questions. She also has Bibles in different languages and at Easter and Christmas she has books that explain the true meaning of these holidays. First though, she meets their needs in very practical ways.
Nothing offered is insignificant.
The fields are white for harvest and there is still much work to be done. Your prayers for this ministry are greatly appreciated. Please also consider sending a one-time or monthly donation to help support Myrna as she reaches out to our immigrant population.
Ask the Lord of the harvest therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.
