Chad recently connected with our 100 Huntley Street co-Host, Cheryl Weber, to bring an update on the ongoing work in Ukraine. Prayer is vital, ongoing help is still needed. Chad has the privilege or overseeing seven different departments at Hungry for Life (“HFL”). He has been on 61 HFL trips which include assessments, monitoring, and leading teams. Similar to a few other staff, Chad came to know about HFL through his former youth pastor and now Executive Director of HFL, Dave Blundell. Chad had little to no professional experience before starting with Hungry For Life, unless you call shooting a puck/basketball or hitting a baseball/volleyball as experience. He had always had a desire to work within the church, but never found a specific area until hearing about the opportunity he could have in assisting churches to become directly involved in sustainable community projects in developing countries. Since that time, Chad has gained a considerable amount of experience by travelling to 18 countries and conducting over 30 assessment/monitoring trips. Chad is married to Mary, whom he met at bible school in Sweden; together they have one wonderful daughter. Mary has led many teams to her home country in the Ukraine. http://hungryforlife.org/country/ukraine/
Annette Walker is a 100 Huntley Street Prayer Partner. As a child Annette while attending a Christmas candlelight service Annette recalls singing the last line of the hymn, Oh Little Town of Bethlehem - “Where meek souls will receive Him, still the dear Christ enters in”. The Anglican Minister explained to the children how they could ask Jesus to come into their heart. Suddenly Annette felt an “Oh Wow!” realization and said “yes” to God and was filled with joy and peace.
