Ron and Brenda Ruse have been involved in mission work in Nova Scotia, Canada, for the past 24 years. During that time they have worked in five different churches and helped in camp ministry. They are presently ministering in the town of Truro, Nova Scotia, where they are planting a church.
Ron grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago, IL. He met Brenda in college, and they have been married for over 27 years. Brenda grew up in Westerville, OH, and is the daughter of Roger and Emma Jane Bixler who are also serving with GFA Missions.
God continues to bless the church planting ministry in Truro, NS. This year we have seen 20 new people attending the church. Several young couples have joined Grace Baptist Church, as well as some solid older couples.
God has used our summer Bible School ministry to bring new children to the church.
After this last year's Bible School, it was a great blessing to see the parents of two little girls begin to attend church. Both parents have accepted Christ and have a strong desire to grow in God's grace.
The Ruses have three children. Laura is married to Ryan Thien. They live in Piedmont, SC. David is married to Andrea Coblentz. They live in Greer, SC. Krista lives in Piedmont, SC.
