Meet Our Missionaries

Project L.A.M.B.S. International

Making disciples is the call and mandate of our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus urged the disciples to follow Him. He laid down before us the teaching and the walk that we need to follow with Jesus as our supreme example. It is imperative for every believer and the church to know that disciples are not born but they are made. For the church to be strong in the last days, we must be about the business of equipping the saints (disciples) for the work of service.

Dr. James Humphries has been ministering for over 40 years and has experience in a variety of ministries including church planting, children’s ministry, street ministry, youth ministry, camp ministry, pastoral work and directing and teaching in schools all over the world. In addition, he has taken part in traveling and ministering in the USA, Mexico, Ukraine, Myanmar, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Thailand, India and across most of Canada. He completed his B.R.E. and his M.A. from Briercrest, and his Doctor of Ministry from Providence Theological Seminary in the spring of 1999.

In January 1996, Dr. James Humphries resigned as pastor of a local church with a vision to reach further abroad with the Word of God and to use it to train labourers for Christ (Matthew 9:36-38). He shared this with Dr. David Smith and Dr. Chuck Nichols of Providence Theological Seminary and they greatly encouraged Dr. James Humphries and his wife Irene to develop what God was laying on their hearts.

In March 1997, they traveled to Jamaica where they met several pastors who were very concerned about the need for training and disciplining their young people as leaders in their churches. Dr. James Humphries and Irene did not know this would be the starting point to an international ministry of discipleship training around the world known as Project L.A.M.B.S. International.

To date, Project L.A.M.B.S. has ministered in Canada, Myanmar, Ukraine, Africa, Jamaica, Mexico, Israel, Thailand, Japan, Dominican Republic, Naga Land, India, Viet Nam, and China. We offer over 30 different courses. Our graduates’ number over 1000, and are serving worldwide. Out of this group of graduates, we have equipped and trained directors, teachers and pastors who in turn are carrying out 2 Timothy 2:1-2 to an even larger group of people.

In 2002 it was discovered that Irene had cancer again. God gave Irene another three years and because of that she was still able to travel and teach in many different countries. Shortly after what was to be her last trip, Irene was hospitalized in February 2005. A few weeks later she went home to be with her Lord and Saviour on March 9.

My second wife Hkaw Win was raised and trained mostly in the land of Myanmar. She has earned B.th, University Degree and a Master of Divinity Degree in Myanmar. In April 2007 she finished a second Master’s Degree at Providence Theological Seminary in Christian Education. After July 1st, 2007 she headed back to Myanmar to head up the Christian Education Department for the Myitkyina Kachin Baptist Association and oversaw various ministries to 62 churches. After her four-year term was completed, she has been traveling and working as an interpreter and doing translations concerning various kinds of discipleship books and materials.

Over the last ten years we have lived in the countries of Myanmar and Thailand preparing a variety of resources in the Burmese (Myanmar) and Kachin Languages. To date we have published over 20 different kinds of books. Our goal is to equip and establish people as Disciples of Christ. Please pray for God’s leading and wisdom. Our walk with Christ has taken us down many challenging pathways but we have seen the faithfulness of our Lord and Savior in every area. His grace has been sufficient.

Freedom Outreach Adult & Teen Challenge

Meet Our Missionaries

I, Allen was born and raised on the mission field in South Africa. I moved home to Canada when I was 20, and started working. God called me to Bible College, and though I fought with Him about it because I was so incredibly shy, He won. I started Bible College and there met my wife Kandie.

I, Kandie was raised in Northern Saskatchewan. My parents had foster children since I was 4 years old. Most of my foster brothers and sisters came from alcoholic homes, and many were abused. They would stay with us while their parents went through the AA program, and then would be taken back when their parents were able to take care of them. Many of them came back to our home more than once as was necessary. After graduation, I followed my older brother to Bible College where I met Al.

After Bible College we were married and soon there was an opening for us to serve as missionaries in Northern Saskatchewan. We moved to Pelican Narrows, a small village with a population of around 1000 people in 1993 and served there, starting a church and raising leaders with Dan & Lana Morgan. After 5 years God told us we were to move. At the time we weren’t sure why, but it was confirmed to us so we trusted God and obeyed.

We moved to Denare Beach, built a church with, and ministered alongside Pastor Mark Ramshaw, Pastor Dan Morgan, and their families. We three also started teaching Bible College courses to those who wanted, and brought in other FCA ministers to help in teaching the courses.

After having served together in Pelican Narrows and having seen the cycle of alcohol addiction in many families, God then prompted the Morgans and ourselves to start a ministry to the addicted. For 5 years we fundraised, while still travelling weekly back into Pelican Narrows and Deschambault Lake to minister (as they didn’t have pastors at the time). Finally, in 2008, we were able to build Freedom Outreach …. A small cozy home, able to hold 10 men at a time, where we could offer not just a 30 or 90 day program as the government does, but a 1 year program.

In January 2009 we opened the doors to Freedom Outreach. It is a non-profit charity with no government funding. We have had students from all across Canada, but mostly from the North, as young as 17 and as old as 72! Our goal is to show each of our students how much God loves them, to help them understand that they have immense value, and that they are created for purpose. The lessons they do are all Bible based, and either relate to general Biblical principles, or are individually selected and assigned to promote growth in each student’s specific areas of struggle. Our work program helps teach a good work ethic and the value of integrity, and it is amazing to watch the men as they become confident men, proud of the work they do, whether shoveling snow, cutting wood or building decks or garbage stands. We are so privileged to see the change in each person’s life, and to witness God healing relationships, and bringing hope and love as a ripple effect into other’s lives as He restores families.

Current Projects

-This Summer we are hoping to be building a heated work shop Lord willing. We currently have raised almost $70,000 towards it, and will continue raising funds for it as we progress in its construction. This will be where our diesel septic truck will be kept in winter, as it requires a heated space to actually start. Our septic truck is vitally important to Freedom Outreach as it is a source of revenue for the center. We have to pump our own septic, and others rely on us (and pay us) to pump their septic tanks also.

The shop will also be used to train our students with skills such as woodwork, welding and mechanics, so they will be able to find good jobs after graduating. This is a practical but very essential need, as we teach our students the importance of not just living life free from addiction, but also being hard working, tax paying, productive members of society.The second floor of the shop will be used to house graduates who choose to stay for an extra year (or more) to work with us, as well as guests who come to visit including families of our students, pastors, or maybe you! We are looking forward to when we can have this completed.

-We are also raising money to pay off the loan for our work truck. This is used to haul large loads of wood (which we use for heat, and we also sell to the public), water for the center (as we are not connected into the town’s water lines), and all the tools for each job we are hired to do.

How Can You Partner?

In April, Allen tore his meniscus and had to have knee surgery. The surgeon told him that he would not be able to do shingling or any real physical work for at least 6 months. We are still wanting to build the shop this year, but we will only be able to so with groups of volunteers. It would take a great coordinated effort to see this happen, but if you feel led to help, please contact us so we know if we will be able to go ahead.

You can also partner with us through student sponsorship. Become a monthly partner by donating $30 or more/month, or $360 annually and we will send you a student prayer card every so often, so you can read that student’s testimony and pray for their individual needs.

If you feel called to possibly work in this type of ministry as a volunteer or permanent position, please give us a call. We’d love to chat with you about the possibility.

Vision and Future Plans

As the majority of people dealing with addictions do not come into a rehabilitation program, or seek help, we strongly believe that we need to provide help within the communities as well. Our hope is to have offices in our northern communities, with a staff member who will be able to encourage and minister to the people, providing courses for family or friends of those struggling with addictions (concerned persons group), a listening ear, and directing those who wish to enter a program, to our centre.

We are looking forward to having the camp used for ministry also. Once the shop is built we will have 2 suites, and a dining hall, which we want to be available to church groups, visitors, and family members of the students of Freedom Outreach, as well as friends and ministers travelling through. 

Resources to Share with Others

We are happy to provide help to any pastor or church who has someone struggling with addictions. We can provide resources, advice, and information for application to our center, for those who are ready for help. We can also direct you to the closest place running the concerned persons group study (a study to help those having to deal with the concerns of a loved one caught in addiction).

My role at Global Teen Challenge is to serve Adult & Teen Challenge leaders in Canada and around the world with staff training and personal development, strategic planning and implementing accreditation standards.

 

Current Projects

As Covid-19 restrictions allow, we are working to establish strategic planning and accreditation intensives in each of the seven regions served by Global Teen Challenge.

How Can You Partner?

1. There is power in united prayer, and my number one request is for prayer coverage!
2. If you’re interested in serving on a short-term missions trip at a Teen Challenge centre, please connect with me and let me know your preference of country/region.

Vision and Future Plans

The mission of Global Teen Challenge is to put hope within reach of every addict. There are approximately 27 countries currently looking for new discipleship programs and we continue to seek God’s direction to expand our reach. A personal burden of mine is to see a Teen Challenge centre established in Canada’s far north.
