My name is George Ewald and I pastor a church in Port Hardy BC. 

 

A few years ago Bonnie and Bruce showed up on our door step as they were praying over Vancouver Island and seeking Gods direction.

 

After speaking with them and discerning their hearts at that time I asked them to do an impromptu service during our Sunday night meeting.

 

Bruce shared his amazing gift of music and worship woven through out Bonnie's life story. Her vulnerability, openness along with her transparency was so appreciated. It touched many and opened hearts to the Fathers healing as Bonnie had experienced in her own life. 

 

Even though their ministry has not brought them back to the island it has been a joy to follow how God has been blessing, providing and opening doors that have led to them getting access to so many institutions and settings that with out Holy Spirits leading could not have happened.

 

You can trust their hearts and their ministry.

Bruce and Bonnie joined us in a city wide outreach ministry that included a testimonial concert, sharing at the Men, Women and Youth Prisons.  God truly moved in wonderful ways as they ministered to those who are spending some of their life in bondage.

 

As well, they had an opportunity to minister to a Youth Group Home with mostly 1st Nations teens.  So many of them were inflicted with demonic spirits and the consequences of being raised in drug and alcoholic homes.

 

The best response came when they had an opportunity to share at the local high school with many youth hearing the gospel and hearing Bonnie's story that touched many lives.  God was so wonderfully present and we enjoyed a number of people coming to know Jesus.

 

God is good, and we praise the Lord for the Rawling's coming and blessing us as the Lord led.

 

Blessings, 

Pastor Gregg Rustulka

 


 

My name is Corey Shwartz. A while back my wife and I hosted a ministry/outreach event for our community in Camrose AB. and we invited Bruce & Bonnie Rawling to be a part of that. During the evening they shared what God has done and is doing in their life. He sure does work in ways we can never imagine. ISAIAH 12:1-6 Describes the evening better than I could ever put into words. 

 

“And in that day you will say: “O LORD, I will praise You; Though You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me. Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘For YAH, the LORD, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’ ” Therefore with joy you will draw water From the wells of salvation. And in that day you will say: “Praise the LORD, call upon His name; Declare His deeds among the peoples, Make mention that His name is exalted. Sing to the LORD, For He has done excellent things; This is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion, For great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst!” 

Isaiah12:1-6NKJV

 


 

I had the pleasure of hosting Bruce and Bonnie Rawling at Hastings Lake Bible Camp, where they were our featured speakers and teachers for our Single Parent Family Camp. This unique week offers single parent families a full, unique, and affordable summer camp experience where parents can relax, connect with, and support other single parents, while they receive counseling and spiritual guidance, meals, lodging and their kids are looked after. Bruce and Bonnie were extremely effective and compassionate presenters because they have much in common with these single parents, as each of them have been through challenging divorces and had to live as single parents themselves. Their Tree of Life ministry that encourages healing and forgiveness greatly blessed all the single moms and dads that attended our camp. The powerful story of Bonnie’s life journey, when mixed with Bruce’s live musical soundtrack was a powerful and artistic experience that spoke volumes to their passion and love for their friends and neighbors.

I am Pastor Brian Lane of Hi-Way Tabernacle in White Fox SK. Bruce & Bonnie were a part of our church family for a number of months. They participated in our midweek Bible study and often in the times of prayer afterwards ministering very effectively to those who were prayed for. We had them take a Sunday evening service in which Bonnie shared her testimony and Bruce saying as part of the testimony. The message was very real and touched many hearts of the grace and mercy of God and and how no matter what has happened God does and will restore life and transform us back to being whole before him when we come and surrender and cry out to Him. Bonnie also spoke on a number of occasions for me when I was away and I was told that it was very well done. I would have them minister in our church anytime as I believe that they are very much Holy Spirit called and anointed to be ministers for our Lord Jesus Christ. That comes through very clearly as they live out  unconditional obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

I am Pastor Brian Lane and I am on the executive of the Love Gospel Jamboree as the Jamboree weekend music coordinator. We had Bruce as one of our artists for the 2016 jamboree. As I watched throughout the weekend I saw that his music related to many who attended and that he was well received. His music was more than just a performance it was a message God had given him from the heart. It was a Message many needed to hear. Both Bruce and Bonnie were always ready and willing to pray for those who came to them to be ministered too. They were a wonderful blessing to us at the Jamboree. May God continue to bless them as he continually leads them in ministry.

My name is John Gibson and I am the general director of Bethel Gospel Camp in the Meadow Lake Provincial Park in Northern Saskatchewan. I asked Bruce and Bonnie to be the speakers for our Sr. Teen camp in August of 2016. I was impressed with the fact that they involved themselves totally in the camp and were willing to minister to campers and staff outside of the chapel time. Bruce, a long-time friend and an accomplished musician, did a wonderful job leading our worship time and he was also a great encourager to me, my counselors, campers and other staff. Bonnie did most of the speaking and was very sensitive to the Spirit and ‘in tune’ with what the group needed to hear. The result: many commitments and recommitments by campers and staff alike. There was not a heart unmoved.
