I am an Eritrean by origin, residing in Toronto as a citizen of Canada. I am a Catholic by religion but have various religious affiliations in my family. I learned how to communicate with God since my childhood, but only recently did I become so committed and know the benefits of his guidance. I was always ostracized and condemned and even admitted to a mental hospital for merely saying that I spoke to God.
I am a divorced father of three, two of whom are autistic kids and wonderful children. I came to Canada from Nigeria, where I resided as a refugee for a total of fifteen years. I left Eritrea in 1975 to avoid the escalating war at the time and have never returned since then because of the brutal regime that controls the country.
