Vancouver staff bombed

Hey, this prayer request just came through on our staffweb. Please pray for this family! Gary is now at home healing.

On Saturday morning Gary and Lynda Stevenson, a campus staff couple in the Greater Vancouver area was moving when a package arrived on their doorstep looking like a gift for their two little girls. Gary walked into the garage with it when it exploded….it was in fact a bomb. The police are treating this very seriously and Gary is in the hospital as a result of his injuries. He has deep lacerations, acid burns and some of the shrapnel entered his abdomen and had to be surgically removed from his liver. Both he and Lynda are under police protection.

Please be in prayer for this couple, and for all of our Staff…at the moment we don’t know much more about why Gary and Lynda, or if it was even intended for them but we are taking security precautions as a ministry.

  1. Hey – So nice to meet you! Are/were you in Kynn & Lorie’s newlywed class? We LOVE them (and miss them)!

    I’m so glad you left a comment on our blog – I love it when I meet people through our blog!

    And, I LOVE to talk photography. I shoot with a Canon 40D which I got last year. However, even if you just have a little point and shoot digital camera you can put closer things in focus and have the stuff in the background be blurry. Just put your camera on the macro setting – which is usually the “flower” picture on the dial (make sense?). Then, focus on the close up object (by pushing the shutter button down halfway). Once you’ve focuses on the close-up object, move the camera to include the faraway object (all the while holding down the shutter button halfway) and snap the picture.

    Hope that makes sense!

    As far as editing software – I recently got Photoshop Elements, which I’m slowly learning, but before that I just used iPhoto (if you have a PC you can do little things in Microsoft Picture Editor). Or, you can also edit photos for free at

    Anyways – sorry for the long comment – if you ever want to chat by email feel free (
