you need to know that Bekah and I LOVE the youth of Russell Manitoba. We estimate, that over the past couple of years alone, we have hung out with well over 200 youth from all over the area. Whether it's longboarding, coaching volleyball, running a youth group, leading Bible studies, or just hanging out over a cup of coffee and a board game, we thoroughly enjoyed our time with these incredible people.


Over the past couple of years, Bekah and I have been dreaming of starting a youth drop-in centre in Russell. After hearing God's clear call and feeling a deep passion to develop this dream, we began to search for the right path forward. When discussions with YFC began we immediately felt right at home and totally on board with their vision of “creating a community of Hope, where no young person goes hungry; spiritually, emotionally, physically or relationally.” We have been so blessed and encouraged by the great work Westman YFC is already doing in the Brandon area and couldn't be more excited to be opening our very own satellite, here in Russell. The need is so great, or you could say, the harvest is plentiful, and we can't wait to get into the fields and get to work.
