About the Minister:
My name is Joseph Guindeba, I was born on September 10th, 1974 in Sangha Mali.
I am from a predominantly animist fraction of the Dogon ethny. My father was the only one to be converted to Christianity in his family.
My father died when I was only 7 years, after I enrolled at school in an area where the school was not appreciated that time.
After the death of my father, I stayed with his younger brother , and subsequently with other tutors, some have helped me by the grace of God. This is part of social values in Mali.
It is in these conditions that after having completed high school, I got a scholarship to study computer engineering in Algeria where I lived four years, until I decided to go to Italy. Eight years later, God brought me to Canada.
A large part of my life has been lived out of any religious belief, despite the many temptations from several personalities such as Muslim and Christian parents and Italian Catholics religious.
However, I have always loved justice, help those in need and defend peaople as I can. I have always said that there is a natural law, a justice that punished evil. But I was unable to stay for long in a religions.
During the last year before the call of God, I got political ambitions. Because I was tired of denouncing things that I found wrong. And having no power to change things as I wish, I decided to do politics. The goal is to bring changes in Canada and the world in general.
It is in this situation that the Lord has created the conditions that led me to repentance. In addition, He called me to be His servant.
God let me know that working with Him, I can do better for his people!
Today I am committed than ever to fully serve my God, creator of heaven and earth. I have the desire to save a lot of people who are still with lack of faith in the living God, the one God who is real and who has only one path leading to Him: Jesus Christ, He sacrificed for the world he created and loves so much. Now a day (July2016), I am at my 8th encounter with the LORD. Yes I saw Jesus! In spirit.
This situation can only strengthen my faith in Christ the Savior and encourage me to serve my heavenly Father who called me to preach good news and justice to the people, heal the broken hearted, set free the captives and release the prisoners. Isaiah 6, Isaiah 41, 1 Samuel 7:17.
17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”
18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.
19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”
20 At once they left their nets and followed him.
21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them,
22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.
May God bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Servant of Jesus Chirst.
