Hi! My name is Josh Capicio and I am a second year engineering student at the University of Calgary. I grew up in the small city of Red Deer, AB where I learnt how to roll hay bales and herd cattle. Just kidding! I lived in the suburbs where I grew up playing basketball and training in the art of karate. My passion for active living has always been a part of my life and has actually played a key role in how I came to know God.

Coming from a Filipino background my family was Catholic and went to church every Sunday, though I never really understood why. In my perspective, going to mass seemed so routine and impersonal. Being physically active and competing in various sports was something that was personal to me. The only problem I had was that I became a nervous wreck when I competed and that caused a lot of negative stress. My father taught me how to pray and so I turned to prayer as a mechanism to calm myself and that’s where I experienced the grace of God working in my life. Competing in sports was analogous to my daily life, in the challenges that I faced and the sufferings I had to endure; and God gave me the strength to overcome all of the battles I faced on and off the court. I began to experience the real presence of God in every aspect of my life.

Coming to this realization I wanted to venture deeper into my faith, strengthening my relationship with God. My journey throughout high school consisted of my ongoing desire to know God more personally and to share this kind of love that gave me much fulfillment. My identity had become rooted in my faith and I wanted to see others have their own lives transformed too!

Going into university I found CCO. I have met so many amazing people who aspire for more in their lives and share that same mindset of seeking out God in every aspect of their life. I have witnessed lives being transformed in this community and God has truly blessed the friendships I have made in the past years. Now my main passion is to share the word of God and allow Him to work through me to touch the lives of those I encounter.

I have been very fortunate to be a part of the mission going to Cameroon where I will have the opportunity to share this fire that God has sparked in me to those who are thirsting for something greater than themselves. I am excited to go on mission with many like-minded individuals who are set on sharing God’s love and providing the local communities the chance to know the Christian faith and have their own lives transformed for the better. This would not be possible without the support of our donors and I ask that you prayerfully consider donating to my mission, but I thank you for your time to read this and know that you will be in my prayers!

Yours in Christ,
Josh Capicio
