Who we are

Who we are

Houses of Blessing Winnipeg Manitoba.

We are Hilde and Marc Pranger and we work with the team at Living Word Temple (LWT) in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Marc had been carrying a vision for ministry in Canada since 1995 and made several trips over the year.  Finally, we moved to Winnipeg in August 2018. This was and is a leap of faith.  In June that year, we got the invitation to go and we quickly and swiftly packed and left with three young children. We were already connected with houses of blessings when we lived in Veenendaal the Netherlands for a number of years.  Here in Canada we are continuing to build on that connection. 

Our vision is to train and disciple people so they will disciple others. We are a missional focused couple, always keeping Christ at the centre of what we do. LWT is our home church and a hub for ministry activities. We long for reconciliation with the First Nations because we know that the beauty of the good news of Jesus’ message was often brought by churches and Christians who acted in a way opposite of Christ’s message.  They gave Christianity a bad reputation through oppression, settlers mentality, and colonization.  We hope to bring Jesus and show His story in many different cultures and settings.  His love free for all.    

Even though our meetings are not in our house, we hope to make other people’s houses and all the place we meet at places of blessing, as we go there to pray, to open the Bible, to listen, and be present
