Lindal Mennonite Brethren Mission, located near Morden, Manitoba, began as a result of work done by students of the Winkler Bible School. In 1935 H. S. Voth baptized 32 persons and in 1938, 10. Soon after this a mission church was organized under the Mennonite Brethren Church of Manitoba. J. P. Braun supervised this church for six years in addition to his ministry at the Morden Mennonite Brethren Church. A small church building was erected in 1939. The church membership represented various nationalities —Polish, English, German, etc. J. Kehler served as minister for five years. A number of the members later moved to other places so that in 1954 the membership was nine; Wilmer Kornelsen was the pastor. The language of worship was English. The church is located 7 miles west and 8 miles south of Morden.
Home missionaries salaried by Mennonite Brethren Church of Manitoba were Jake H. Kehler, Wilmer Kornelson, Peter Penner, and Joe Wiebe. In 1950 there were 9 members; in 1965, 25. The congregation dissolved in 1966.
