I am married to Jonita who I met when living and working up in Thompson MB. We were married on May 19th 2001 in beautiful Skaanevik Norway, Jonita’s home town. We have two beautiful children Jesse Benaiah (March 26th 2002) and Hannah Marie (May 17th 2004).
In 2015, after living in Portage la Prairie, MB for 2 years we made the decision to move back to our home in Thompson and resume our lives in northern Manitoba. The time that was spent in Portage allowed for growing closer to family and the making of some new friendships. The first half of 2015 also included an extended stay in Norway for Jonita and the kids and an opportunity for them to be closer to family on the “other side”. Over all the year brought about lots of travel and change and meant the renewing of relationships with some and saying farewell to others.
As we begin 2016 we believe that God is preparing us to establish ourselves again in northern life. This has not been an easy transition, and we covet your prayers as we continue our journey of faith, a deeper walk with the Lord and the task of raising two “teenagers”.
