I (Jon) grew up on the sweeping prairies of Manitoba, and Marissa hails from the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. We married in 2012 and settled in my hometown in Manitoba, where I worked in carpentry and heavy construction. The Lord has blessed us with two sons, who bring much joy and laughter into our home.
Having served in various ministries prior to marriage, our hearts’ desire was to serve in missions together. God called our family to Northern Youth Programs in 2017, where we are happy to be the Host and Hostess to the many visitors who come and go at the Guesthouse. I also take responsibility for the maintenance department.
