Bro. Eugene & Sis. Sara Braun
"Leadership is not a man, sitting above his people, dictating his ideas, charges, orders and demands. Leadership is a man who stands beneath his people and becomes an uplifter. He is a servant to their needs through encouragement, admonission, teaching so they themselves can become leaders in their homes and personal lives."
Brother Eugene and his wife, Sister Sara, made their way from Manitoba to Edmonton in 1999, bringing with them their son, Raphael, and their three daughters, Charity, Stephanie, and Natalie. Since then, many changes have come about in their family, both as they adapted to city life from farm life, and as the natural changes in life overtook them. Charity is married to David Huculak and a mother of 2. Stephanie and her husband, Jeff Fehr, have 3 children who keep Stephanie busy while Jeff is attending to his dirt moving business. Natalie and her husband, Ryan Langkopf, live out of town on an acreage, both working in the banking system. Rafi, as he is known, is currently working in accounting after finishing schooling in that area.
Brother Eugene and Sister Sara have taken their labour to heart, continually looking to the future with a vision of producing a solid, thriving crop of believers in the form of a church body. One dominant principle of Brother Eugene’s ministry has been “The Law of the Harvest” – that is, you reap what you sow. (Galatians 6:7) Hence, if you want a different crop, you must sow a different seed. This is why Brother Eugene and the church have been looking inwardly, to see the type of work that must be done in order to produce a better crop. Interpreted, whether it is a marriage seminar, parenting sessions, counseling, or special meetings the end result is more than worth the initial sacrifice.
We greatly appreciate Brother Eugene’s ministry, and the support of his family, in endeavouring to equip us with the character and discernment needed to live our present lives, and to prepare us for the one great event for which we are all waiting.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
