Gary’s Story

Growing up, I often looked out the window, wondering why my dad was not around. It was my uncles and other Godly men who looked out for me, took me fishing, camping and to ball games. Because of their willingness to invest in my life, I experienced how the relationship between a boy and his dad is really designed to be. These men, along with a praying mother and grandmother, formed the first bricks of the foundation of my faith in God. This foundation was shaped as a child but my walk with the Lord only became real and life changing when I met my wife Andrea. Together, we discovered that God had protected us; brought us together and now had a great plan for our future. The outcome of my life could have been disastrous without the guidance I received as a child. God has shown me so clearly that I am to be an “uncle” to others, to walk alongside and be a mentor to both young and old. My heart is broken for the hurting young people both in Quebec and abroad. I long for everyone to know that a loving and caring God has a masterful exciting plan for each individual, no matter where they are in life. To live the life that God intended does not require great faith, but simply requires faith in a great God!
