“Wash his feet with your tears, and wipe them with the hairs of your head, for where extraordinary love has been experienced, extraordinary love ought to be the outgrowth, and extraordinary service ought to be the consequence.”
— Charles Spurgeon
|Gus sewing one of 500 parachutes|
Originally from Saskatchewan, Gus and his wife spent several years as missionaries in northern Manitoba. They also ministered for three years in various native reservations. Today, Gus lives at a senior’s home in Alberta .
In our May 2011 newsletter, we invited readers to sew parachutes that are used to drop Christian materials over guerrilla-controlled regions in Colombia. With the pattern VOM provided in hand, Gus began sewing. A year later, he has completed approximately 500 parachutes!
Self-taught and 86 years old, Gus received a more efficient sewing machine, which has aided in his work. He continues making parachutes as well as special pouches to hold shortwave radios pre-tuned to Christian stations.
