Dan & Margaret joined GMSA as home missionaries in Canada in November 2013. They are trusting the Lord for open doors in churches, organizations, and individuals who are interested in the needs and work of GMSA in Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay. The Burkholders live in St. Thomas.
“My wife Margaret and I are both are preacher’s kids (so heard lots of sermons), and as a result of the love, influence, and prayers of godly parents, we came to know the Lord early in life. Margaret is the musician on the team, and so we welcome all opportunities to sing and preach the Word. God has blessed us with four wonderful children. In 35 years of pastoral ministry, we have been actively exposed to missionary work. Those experiences have helped us to be mindful of needs across the street, and around the world. From 2008-2013 we were involved in highway evangelism, so taking the gospel on to the road is a mission we are happy to do, and we pray that God might use us to help others take a trip that in the end leads them to South America.
“We will be serving as GMSA Home Missionaries, and Representative to Canadian churches, organizations and individuals. Our overall goal will be to challenge people to be informed, pray, go and give. Specifically, we are trusting the Lord to use us in the preaching and teaching of the Word, encouraging folks to consider long- or short-term service on the field, promoting opportunities to participate in special mission projects, organizing prayer networks, and staying connected with friends and supporters of the ministry.”
