We give thanks for the life of James (Jannes) Brink who passed away at the Meadows Long Term Care Centre in Ancaster on January 6, 2021 in his 90th year.
He will be deeply missed by his wife Caroline, and is predeceased by his first wife Ruth Brown. Father to Gary, John, James Jr., Paul, Anita, Aaron and Colin. Survived by his grandchildren, he was the oldest of 8 children and emigrated to Canada from Holland in 1949.

He retired in 1989 and soon after became ordained in the Evangelical Church Alliance. He founded Harvest Time Ministries and did many missionary trips to Trinidad, Haiti, Curacao, and Guyana.

Our entire family, had the honour of attending services in James and Caroline's home, we shared times of great rejoicing and also times of sorrow. James was someone who would listen to you intently and offer advice and pray for your situation. His gentle, comforting voice would touch you with sincerity and his passion and love for our Lord, would often flow, with tears as he was indeed filled with the Holy Spirit. We will forever cherish our visits and our fond, happy memories of being with the family during Sukkot at your home, we had never attended this particular Appointed Time before and we will never forget it. There is a promise that we will see our loved ones again, I know this is true of James, I would like to quote the words of a song sung by the group "West Life" "I'll see you again" Please know, we love you all and you are in our thoughts and prayers, may Elohim be your comfort and strength during this difficult time. We will all be together one day soon!
