My husband and I were missionaries in Spain for twelve years, and in Canada for one year. We joined the CRC in Wappingers Falls, NY when we returned from Spain in 2009. Then when we went to Toronto to serve with our mission, Liebenzell USA, we attended the Willowdale CRC. Our role with the mission in Canada was to serve as pastoral care for a group of young internationals who came to Canada to serve in various ministries for one year. I also volunteered at a faith-based house for refugee claimants and at a weekly community dinner for the homeless and marginalized in Toronto, which was a church-sponsored (not by Willowdale) ministry. We have recently relocated to Greenville, SC. Having found that there is no CRC in the area, we will soon be joining a Presbyterian church. But, with two kids attending Calvin College, we will continue to follow the CRC.
