One Young Man’s Northern Manitoba Adventure – Convergence In Life And Ministry

One Young Man’s Northern Manitoba Adventure – Convergence In Life And Ministry

by Kevin E. Jesmer 11-8-17

Ephesians 2:10 reads, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (ESV)

Convergence in life is when all the single threads in one’s life merge together to form a beautiful tapestry. It is done by God. It is God’s gift. It happens when a person realizes that everything that happened in their life has happened for God’s sovereign purpose. Every event has meaning and has been redeemed and used by Jesus for his Gospel purposes.

I have been experiencing this over the last 5 years with this  mission to Northern Canada. (since 2012). Every last experience and skill and talent that God has led me into and developed within me is being utilized. Even my past experiences growing up in the forested areas of northern Manitoba, in Thompson. At 53 years old, I can say that it is all making sense and I can see why God worked in my life as he did and I thank him and praise him for it.

Today, I wanted to share some of the northern adventure that I experienced as a youth in northern Manitoba.  Through it, God molded me and shaped me to make me the man I am today. It is no wonder that I have been led to help support the Gospel mission to NW Ontario. Life in the Canadian North is in “my blood”. It is part of my identity. I no longer feel like I a forcing a round peg into a square hole when it comes to meaning and mission in life. Convergence has happened and is continually happening by the grace of God. It will culminate in eternal life in the kingdom of God with my Lord Jesus and redeemed believers from every nation of the world.
