Welcome to My Personal Page
During my years with Eden Foundation, I've had the pleasure to work with the folks at Mennonite Heritage Village on a few collaborative projects. This project "The Peace Trek" sparks something new in me. "The Peace Trek" intends to allow us to contemplate the arrival of Mennonites onto the Manitoba prairie and consider the effort it took to start a new life so far away from Mennonite origins. We can now also contemplate the difficulties being experienced currently in Ukraine.
Another component of contemplation is to consider those who had been living here prior to our arrival and to consider the help we received from them in the process of our own re-settlement. We owe a very large debt of gratitude to Metis and First Nations people.
When we ride this Peace Trek we remember. When we arrive at Mennonite Heritage Village (MHV) we will meet at MHV's newest installation, the monument commemorating the life and martyrdom of Dirk Willems.
My riding this event is not only a personal commitment to this contemplative and commemorative journey but to also support the work of both MHV and Eden Health Care Services who provide mental health care across southern Manitoba including Steinbach and the surrounding area. Join me in this first annual Peace Trek Event! Please consider a donation to help the event succeed!
