We are grateful to gather at Richmond Emmanuel Church again this year for the Anglican Mission in Canada’s National Conference. This annual conference is a chance for us to be refueled for the work Jesus is calling us to in Canada, re-connect with new and old friends from across the country, and encourage one another to fulfill our mission in ways that match our unique gifts and contexts.
Our guest speaker this year is David Larlee. Originally from Fredericton, New Brunswick, David trained for ministry at Wycliffe Hall in Oxford before serving for 10 years as an assistant pastor in London (UK). In 2013 David and his family moved to Dallas, TX to join Bishop Philip Jones (leader of the Anglican Mission in North America) and the pastoral team at All Saints Church.
David has been married to Rachel for 11 years and together they have two young sons (Ethan-4 and Thomas-2). David has a heart for pursuing the supernatural and encouraging and equipping others to share their unique gifts for the good of all and the fulfillment of our common mission.

The book Canadian Mantles of Revival is both a challenging and hopeful book. It reminds us that revival is nothing new in Canadian history. We often do not know our own history. Canadians and others would benefit from learning about Henry Alline, Phoebe Hamilton, Hunter and Crossley, Charles Price, each of which have a chapter in the book. Reading the book convicted me to more deeply appreciate how central prayer and repentance will be in the coming Canadian revival.
If only we as Canadians would take this book to heart, the coming Canadian revival would not tarry. Do we want revival badly enough to take to heart the Lenten disciplines of prayer, fasting, self-examination, repentance, bible-reading, and generosity to the poor? I believe that revival is coming to Canada. May we co-operate with God in His desire to quicken his people in Canada.
The Rev. Dr. Ed Hird
