I currently live in the beautiful city of Kelowna, British Columbia. It was during an Okanagan Valley summer of 1979 Jesus Christ, through faith, became my Lord and Savior. At that time I was struggling with being functionally illiterate. I was transferred into an English school from a French school at the beginning of grade five; therefore, I missed all the fundamental rules of grammar and diction for reading and writing English.
In 1980 while attending Commonwealth Bible College in Katoomba, New South Wales, Australia, I miraculously started to understand how to read and write. Through prayer and faith God gave me the gift to memorise and remember scripture in vast amounts. Out of this blessing my ability to read and write grew rapidly to the point where I could teach the Word of God at a college learning level.
After living in Australia for six years working and ministering in different capacities of Christian ministry, I returned to Canada. Since that time I have been assisting at the Kelowna Christian Center Society.
For my entire adult life I have been employed as a sales rep for a security company and also offering my ministry services to the body of Christ. The blessing of living in this time of great possibilities through all the technologies available to us is truly amazing. The blog, Sir Norm’s Proverbial Comment, is one of the tools I am using to reach out and be a blessing.
