KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Leah Humphreys
Leah and her husband, Pete, followed God’s call to Paraguay, South America, where they served for 25 years with New Tribes Mission (Now Ethnos360). The Humphreys invested the first 17 years in a remote location among the Manjúi people, where they raised their five children and served with a church-planting team. Their tribal team responsibilities included cross-cultural communication of the Gospel message, development of a Bible-teaching curriculum and discipleship of local leaders, as well as medical and literacy work. Men, women and young people among the Manjúi responded in faith to the invitation of God to be reconciled to Him, and today there is a small and maturing church. After working themselves out of their job in Paraguay through the mentoring of faithful men and women, Pete and Leah were reassigned to Member Care in Ontario, Canada (still with NTM, now Ethnos Canada) in March, 2004. These days you will find them at Still Waters Counselling in Durham. Leah has a doctorate in Christian Counselling and enjoys public speaking, reading and studying, and playing with her 18 grandchildren. She is passionate about teaching the importance of getting God’s Truth into people’s hearts.
