Warren and Lois Hathaway think of themselves as “ditch diggers.” For the past fifteen years they have endeavored to open channels for God’s love to flow into a dry thirsty land. They do this through writing, teaching, and missions trips. As “ditch diggers” they minister in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and the Northwest Territories. A large part of their ministry is devoted to Native youth—preparing them to take up leadership roles as Christians in their communities. They also offer assistance to others who have a story to tell and want to get it into print.
Numerous mission trips on four different continents have given Lois many opportunities to minister. On some of these trips it has been possible to distribute Bibles, Christian literature, and DVDs as well as sharing testimonies with individuals and large and small groups. As a survivor of colon cancer in 1992, Warren does not participate in the long trips overseas.
