Transforming Lives by Converting Donated Used Goods

Casey Langbroek, International Business Coach and Executive Director of BFM Foundation (Canada) has seen first-hand the difference that one person can make in the world. BFM (Bibles For Missions) Thrift Stores Convert donated used goods into cash so that BFM Foundation (Canada) may through a joint ministry with Bible League Canada, transform people's lives through the Living Word of God.

BFM Foundation is driven by volunteers. Many volunteers have been with the organization for 20 years or more. Why? Because they find a sense of purpose in volunteering for an organization that has tremendous Kingdom impact. Batoul Morteza is a great example of someone who has been impacted by BFM.

Batoul is a happy and smiling single mother to 4 beautiful daughters.  To meet Batoul today, you would never believe the pain and suffering in her life before visiting the Calgary Bibles for Missions Thrift Store just 5 years ago. She is now a volunteer at the Calgary BFM Thrift Store.

"I can see God in every single one of the volunteers at our store. I'm so grateful of my BFM family, especially to Lola, Ann, Anna, Sherryl and Anneka. These beautiful women of God were there for me from the beginning. I love them dearly. I love my church family. And I love my four girls with all my heart and soul. We have never been more close and happy in our whole lives and we owe it all to Calgary Bibles for Missions, Emmanuel Christian Reformed Church and above all to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ." - Batoul

In 2014 alone, each volunteer was responsible for 1.8 churches being planted and 139 people making a decision for Christ! This is truly a ministry that is making a difference in the community.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
