I'm from the small town of Landmark, Manitoba. I grew up in an Christian home but got involved heavily into drugs, alcohol, and gangs and fell away from the Lord. After serving over two years in prison, I got released in Calgary, Alberta, to start the next chapter of my life. After some more severe adversities in Calgary, I finally gave it all over to Jesus in the summer of 2015. I was born again! I started feeling intense empathy, sympathy and compassion for the street people and began spending my evenings on the streets with them, buying them meals, praying for them and sharing my story for encouragement. The Lord has so firmly placed this calling on my heart (Philippians 2:13), I'm honored and privileged to have this ministry (MISSION7), and most importantly by the grace of God being able to be an ambassador for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20) representing him everywhere my feet shall tread!
