Weslet & Aileen Vildort
Weslet and Aileen Vildort, long-time members of the Abbotsford Vineyard, desire to see transformation in Haiti, specifically in the areas of agriculture and education. They, along with their daughter Aileen, are serving in Haiti with the organization, Planting Life Haiti, or “Plante Lavi” in Haitian Creole. Plante Lavi desires to “plant life” spiritually, educationally, and agriculturally. Plante Lavi has hosted several short-term teams of volunteers to lead kids’ VBS lessons, share donations and Bibles with community members, and collaborate with farmers to introduce and use drip irrigation systems. This year, the Vildorts are in Haiti to serve in agriculture and education. Weslet will be managing several fields that use drip irrigation, and working with farmers in agricultural development. Aileen will pursue a vision of training teachers from a biblical perspective.
Phil & Judy Bowler
We love our partnership with Phil & Judy Bowler and we love what they do to spread the good news. After 15 years serving in Senegal, West Africa, the Bowlers are relocating to Guinea, also in West Africa. There they will be partnering with the Alleluia churches under the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada to see the Kingdom of God come to this French speaking, 85% Muslim nation. Among many other roles, Phil is the Theological Educational Consultant for PAOC West Africa as well as Director of Global University in Senegal, Liberia and Guinea. Judy is Coordinator of Evangelism and Discipleship strategies and Director of Child Care Plus Guinea, a child sponsorship program enabling needy children to attend school. Together they will work to strengthen and equip the staff of the 15 Alleluia schools in Guinea which educate over 2000 children.
