The Story

On Tuesday, August 13, 2013, Collette's husband Joel was tragically killed in a car accident leaving behind his sweet wife and 3 small children: Annita (4), Timothy (2), and Annalise (10 months).

Joel and Collette had given their lives to be missionaries in Holland. From the time he was 16, Joel had a burning desire to go to the Netherlands and reach Dutch people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Joel died in the place God had given him a heart for-the place he knew God wanted him to be.

In addition to deep pain and heartache, Collette is now faced with a huge financial burden and uncertainty of the future for her and her children.

Let's show our love and support to Collette in a tangible way by helping to ease this financial burden so that she can focus on healing and helping her young family through this time.

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. Acts. 20:24
It has been almost two weeks since Joel finished his course. Although we were shocked by his death, God is using Joel's passing in the lives of many people, including many Christians who have given sacrificially to Collette and her children.
Tomorrow is the funeral service for Joel Michel. It will be held at 11am at FaithWay Baptist Church in Ajax, ON. The address for FaithWay is 1964 Salem Road in Ajax. You can find directions here: If you are not able to attend the funeral, the church will also be live streaming the service. Just go to the FaithWay Livestream Pageto watch the service.
As Joel is laid to rest tomorrow, Collette's burden continues. Let's continue to share this burden, and keep encouraging people to give to this worthy cause! Please pray for Collette and the family tomorrow and in the days ahead.

What a testimony to the lives that Joel and Collette have touched. Within a couple of days we have more than reached the meagre goal that we originally set. Thank you all for your love. We will continue to raise the goal as God continues to work. THERE IS NO LIMIT ON GOD!

We had a great start to our fundraising campaign for Collette Michel yesterday! Thank you to all who gave. As we look to Collette's future needs, she will be supporting three small children, and will need our help. Let's keep spreading the news. When we all work together, it's amazing what God can do through us!
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 1:27
