My wife and I both grew up in Southern Saskatchewan. I grew up both, in the city, and around the farm.
In my teens my youth group did some missions work at a Bible camp in northern Saskatchewan. This changed my life and I said that I would love to come back. Who knew that over twenty years later God would bring me back to the north.
He had equipped with a solid understanding of the Bible through my three years at Millar College and also molded me through various life situations. I hold my class 1A license, and have experience driving all types of vehicles.
Pam had a hard life growing up, but God was there every step of the way. Through unique circumstances Pam had the opportunity to go overseas doing mission work. In this she found out that she has a knack for languages. Pam was able to obtain TESOL certification before teaching in Central America. She had the opportunity to learn Spanish while serving in Central America.
Both Pam and I have our Education Assistant training and both hold a level 1 food safe. Why all this experience and skills? God began equipping us for working and serving in missions.
We have been married for nearly eleven years. For medical reasons we are unable to have kids, but have a passion for them. God gave us abilities that help us in ours day to day operations on the reserve. Currently we work with Children and Youth on a reserve in northern Saskatchewan.
Our Partnership with EYMI has been very rewarding. We have the opportunity to teach creation to these young minds and they are loving it. EYMI has supplied us with material and equipment to share it. We have used the projector and DVD player numerous times. We feel blessed by all the support that EYMI have been over the last several years and look forward to the future as we continue to respond to God’s call the share His Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations.
