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.
