Love Ottawa

Love Ottawa, formerly known as Mission O or Mission Ottawa, is a city-wide movement that was birthed in 1998. Recently this inter-denominational effort has merged under One Way Ministries and has been reorganized with a new executive team. The goal over the next season is to sharpen the cooperative network’s ability to bring the love of Christ to every neighbourhood in Ottawa.
We will continue to expand the number of groups for pastors and leaders in every area of Ottawa and mobilize city-wide prayer initiatives, but our greatest effort will be to maximize our corporate ability to love our neighbours in the name of Jesus. We want to catalyze the missional effort in our city. We long to see every follower of Jesus embrace their calling as a missionary in their community and workplace.

Arlie and Eva Peters in Bolivia

Arlie and Eva Peters serve under Go Mission as part of a team reaching out to Low-German-speaking people in eastern Bolivia, most of whom come from an ultra-conservative colony-Mennonite background and do not have a saving faith in Christ. Go Mission’s aim is to see this people group restored from spiritually-dead religiosity back to a true, vibrant relationship with Christ. Arlie is director of Low German Educational Ministry, which includes—among other things—directing the [now K-12] Villa Nueva School (which the Peters helped found in 2003), and Eva—a nurse—is currently focusing largely on their 3 young children, while continuing with informal ministry in the areas of health, discipleship, and worship.
For more information, check out the Bolivia Low German Ministries blog or email the Peters.
The Villa Nueva School’s Facebook page (in English) can be found under uevillanueva.

Ryan and Sarah Schmitz in Nicarauga

Global Partners has appointed Ryan and Sarah to long-term missionary service in Nicaragua. It is their desire to serve the Nicaraguan church by hosting short-term mission teams in order for individuals, families, and communities to learn more about Christ and experience His redemptive power. They want to build relationships with the Nicaraguans through economic development and athletic ministries with the hope of leading people to Jesus.

Jarvis and Sue Ferguson in South America

Based out of Atlanta, Jarvis and Sue Ferguson work with 21 countries in Ibero-America, which includes both Spanish and Portugese speaking countries in South and Central America. Jarvis is the area director for Global Partners, where he serves as liaison between the North American General Conference of the Wesleyan Church and the national churches in the different countries. Jarvis also provides administrative oversight to 14 missionary families that serve Global Partners within the Ibero-America area.
