What's happening at CSM?

As most of our supporters know, we had to cancel our annual meeting this year due to the ice storm on Saturday April 14. Because of the lateness in the season, the Board of Directors has decided that we will forgo having a banquet this year. We are, however, planning for next year’s banquet. The Board of Directors would like to thank all those who have sent in their support despite the cancellation, as the banquet is our yearly fund raiser.

CSM has sent 4 containers so far in 2018, with materials for the 5th container waiting on the warehouse floor to ship to Cameroon by mid June. A 6th container is well underway for a ministry in India.

Due to the high cost of mailing the 2 kg Pastors Packs, the Board has decided to only ship these Packs to Bible Students and Pastors in order to meet a specific need. The cost to send 100 of these Packs, with a total weight of 440 llbs, would cover the cost of sending a container that holds 32,000 lbs into most of the countries we ship to.

Please continue to keep CSM and it’s calling in prayer as we together press on in HIS Service.

Doug Hysert, Board Chairman

 

Special Request for Support

CSM Canada’s President Philipson Philip wears many hats: he is our ministry leader and oversees the operation of the warehouse, office, staff, volunteers, donors, and area coordinators; he manages our public relations department and is responsible for seeking out new opportunities for support and new mission organizations for us to send materials to; he oversees our financial and administrative operations and ensures we are compliant with all authorities.

The role of President of CSM is easily a full-time position or better and is a voluntary service. First and foremost, we ask that you continue to keep our President in your prayers.  As Paul asked the church in Thessalonica, so we ask that you pray the Lord’s message be spread quickly through our work and that his Word is honored. We know God is faithful and will provide the means to accomplish his work.  In order that we may better encourage our President in the voluntary work that he does, we are taking up a special offering for his support. Should you feel led by the Lord, please designate “Project 1702” in the memo section of your cheque or envelope. As always, we thank God for his provision and appreciate all prayers and support from our supporters.

Welcome, Little Daughter

In early April, the faithful and heartfelt prayers of our president and his wife were answered, and their daughter, Laura Becca, was born healthy and safe.  Just as Hannah praised the Lord at the birth of her son Samuel, so will we praise Him for little Laura.

Philipson and Rebecca would like to convey their deepest love and appreciation for all the love, prayers, and support they have been shown. Kindly continue to keep them in your prayers.

New Area Coordinator Administrator
After many  years in the role, Garry Gadson has retired from his position as Area Coordinator Administrator. CSM Canada greatly appreciates all of the work Garry has put in and know he will continue to work tirelessly for the mission.
Our new Area Coordinator Administrator is Murray Kwint. Murray has volunteered at CSM for over 15 years, sorting, packing, and helping with renovations as needed.
Before he retired, Murray was an electrical engineer with our local electrical supply company (which skills have come in handy keeping the warehouse lit!) Murray is a trustee at his local church helping with the up-keep and repairs of the church and parsonage.
His wife, Sue, is on the board of CSM. They are usually in at the mission on Wednesday as the volume of materials warrants. Together they have 3 married children and 7 grandchildren. They enjoy travelling in their camper to remote areas (Alaska, trans-Labrador highway, and Newfoundland) as well as National parks in the US.
