Clayton & Isobel Dougan's Update


Dear Friends at Assembly Care,

Amazingly I have been involved in the Capernwray ministry here in Canada for 33 years. This was brought home when, a few weeks ago, I was able to be part of the 40th anniversary celebration for the centre here in BC. It’s my privilege not only to teach in both the Canadian Capernwray Bible Schools but also to serve as a Director on the board. I will be teaching for one week in each of the two Canadian schools over the next few months. 

The preaching and teaching side of our ministry continues and, if I may say so for the glory of God, I and many others have been aware of the various messages truly being the Lord’s word for the various local churches I have visited. On a recent visit to one of the Vancouver churches I had a good conversation with a young married man who trusted the Lord on a previous visit to this church. He is from a background of Marxism and Buddhism so his life has been somewhat complicated. While he is still grappling with significant questions he is growing in the Lord by spending time in God’s word etc. 

This coming Saturday (13th Oct.) we will be holding the fourth of our L.E.A.D. (Love, Encourage, Assist, Develop) Conferences for elders and prospective elders from local churches on Vancouver Island. The theme this time will be the centrality of Christ. We are praying for a real strengthening of those churches.

Health wise, Isobel has been having some challenges of late. She will be seeing our doctor soon for a “non-urgent” chat to go over the results of some recent blood work. This month I’m celebrating the 10th anniversary of my triple bypass operation. The result of a recent tread mill stress test was that my performance was 60% above average. I’m so grateful. 

Once again we send warmest greetings to you all together with heart-felt thanks for continued prayerful support.

“The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you”.
