Taking A Break Already

Hello All...

Hope this email finds you well. It's only a few weeks into the school year, and we are off to take a break. Well...it's more of a celelbration. Tina and I are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary, and we are going away. Emily will be staying with my folks (thanks again mom and dad). So, the next update will be in about two weeks.

Thanks again for your support of the work God is doing here in Canada.

Hello All...

Hope you are doing well. We have just have a great time being away for a while. By the way, if you're wondering, that is a boa contrictor on Emily. This was a part of the Friday afternoon activities at 'Camp Xtreme'.

We got the pictures back and wanted to share with you how brave our little girl is. Not too much to report other than we are having another preview gathering next Sunday for our youth congregation.

Thanks again for all your support. Have a great week.

Going On Holidays

Hello All...

Hope you are doing well. Just wanted to let you know, the Hill family is taking a much needed break after a very busy summer so far. It feels like we haven't even had summer yet.

Anyway, we wanted to introduce you to Dorothy. Dorothy is our main contact at Big Trout Lake. While we were there, she told us that she have been praying for the reserve for many years...and that her prayers are being answered.

Please pray for Dorothy that she would continue to remain faithful to God as she continues to live at Big Trout. Pray also that God would grant us here in Oakville the opportunity to renovate the church and to build a much needed day care centre.

Also, next time we post a blog...we will show you some pictures of the camp we ran here at The Sanctuary in Oakville. We will talk to you all in a couple of weeks. Have a great week.

Keep The Summer Goin'

Hello All...

Hope your doing well. I want you to meet Fabian from Big Trout Lake. Fabian is one of the boys who was always hanging out with us from 8am to about 10pm, when we told him he had to go home. He is a great kid, and we asked him what he wanted to be when he grows up. He said, 'I want to be a bible school teacher just like you guys'.

Please begin to pray for Fabian. He could be the one who brings change to Big Trout Lake. We as the eRuption team and a church are praying that in a few years, Fabian is helping us run camp. Next week we will introduce to someone else from Big Trout. Thanks again for your support. Have a great week.

Finally Back Home!!


Hello All...

What a wonderful time at Big Trout Lake. We had a great camp, and are already talking about next year. We topped out at 65 kids...that was awesome. We did come to the reserve at an ackward time. There was one suicide, one murder, and someone drown just a month before we got there. But through that God was able to do some incredible things. I was able to meet the youth whose father was murdered by his brother. We were able to talk about that and he mentioned that he wasn't worth saving, and I was able to share how God doesn't give up on us...no matter how old we are.

In the next few months, we are looking to have an eRuption website up. We are already beginning to talk about next year. Also, the chief of Big Trout is open to us using the hockey arena for next year's camp and making renovations to the church and adding on. Thanks again for your support. Have a great week.

project : bigtroutlake


Well, we are off and running tomorrow morning!! On our way to Big Trout Lake in northern Ontario. We will be driving for 24 hours and then on Saturday, we will fly for one hour to the reserve. We ask that you pray for three things specifically:

1. Pray that God would work through us.
2. Pray that God would use us.
3. Pray that God would change us.

Thanks for doing that. We will talk to you again in about 3 weeks. Have a great week.
