Josh and Kristen Oestreich are serving the Cree People of Northern Ontario, on the Island of Moose Factory. Josh is the pastor of Cree Gospel Chapel. They are committed to sharing the Word of God to a community that desperately needs to have the light of the Gospel shine brightly.
The community of Moose Factory is an island: roughly 3 miles long and 1 mile wide. The majority (about 2/3) of the island is a First Nation’s Reserve: home to the Moose Cree First Nation. It is considered a remote, northern community, and it is one of the coastal communities, which borders the James Bay. This community was the first trading post of the Hudson Bay Company; they set up shop and traded with the Cree people who were here.
- Please pray for those in our community who have recently given their lives to Christ. Pray that they would be rooted, and grounded in the Truth and be lights to their peers.
- Please pray for our growth and adjustment as new parents; we want to be the best parents that we can be.
- Please pray for revival in our church. We desperate want to see the Lord work in the lives of our congregation, and are praying for Him to move this Island of Moose Factory.
