Michael & Man’s faith journey 2022
It has been a very fulfilling year yet not without challenges for all of us. It is clear as we serve the Lord that the spiritual battle getting more intense.
Both Man and I have experienced and overcome several health challenges. We are so grateful that Man is in remission from her cancer. Michael’s is recovering from pulmonary embolism (which was a close call), hernia surgery and retina tears. Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day (2 Cor. 4:16). Jesus is Victory! We do experience first hand the warfare, both in our family and the ministry, but also the rewards of
seeing people discovering who Jesus truly is and the difference He makes in our lives.
Yes, we have seen God working in amazing ways in the past year as we spend much time serving in context of Indigenous outreaches and media and broadcasting here at home and around the world. The CIAM Media family has continued to expand and move forward in the Lord.
We are presently in the process of finalizing several new FM broadcast applications and full power upgrades with CRTC and Industry Canada, launching the CHOICE, and several other media mission platforms. These media missions’ tools are real gifts from God and have been life changing for many people. This cannot be accomplished alone. We are deeply thankful seeing so many mission minded people involved in various ways with CIAM Media.
We are very grateful for you as our dear family and friends in Jesus. Thank you for sharing so openly with us and allowing us to journey with you. Thank you also for your faithful and sacrificial support both in prayers and finances over these years. It’s is a great encouragement to have dear friends like you standing with us in the mission field among Canada’s Indigenous people and through the various media & broadcast ministries of CIAM.
We count it privilege to serve the Lord in every way we can and somehow impact today and eternity in the choices we make. May God have all the glory and praise whether we serve Him on the streets among homeless, the reserves, in prisons, or over the airways and media. It’s inspiring and very fulfilling to see God at work in people’s lives and the difference He makes as we choose to follow Jesus.
Thank you for joining us on this amazing faith journey, especially celebrating God’s faithfulness and goodness as we are celebrating CIAM 20 year anniversary in 2023.
With much gratefulness,
Michael & Man Sandstrom with family
