Hello hello hello! My name’s Miguel Manrique and I’m from Vancouver, Britsh Columbia. Right now, I am in my 2nd Year studying Graphic Design for Marketing at Wilson School of Design.

I have been a Catholic my whole life, though I’ve only really placed Jesus at the centre of my life during my first year. Since then, my faith has only gotten stronger. However, there came a season of spiritual dryness, I could not hear God’s voice, nor feel his presence. I stopped attending events, stopped daily prayer, fell into sin multiple times. Then, Rise Up 2019 came, and I was jolted back into my faith, with the realization that I’ve been playing it safe for too long. I needed to get out of comfort zone. I needed to get uncomfortable

I am beyond excited and grateful to be given the opportunity to go to Belize with CCO! My journey with CCO so far has been such a fulfilling experience. Once I graduated high school, I didn’t realize how secular post-secondary would be. I am so thankful for the invitation to join CCO, because the friends I’ve made, the events I’ve attended, and the faith studies I’ve taken have honestly been such a blessing.

Your support through prayers and finances would help me and my team we embark on our mission to Belize. Thank You for believing and supporting me on this. May God’s peace be with you all!
