"Oshawa... prepare to be amazed!"... Ruth Smith believes that this motto regarding Oshawa is true regarding the entire Durham region! She first moved to Oshawa in 1987 and has seen transformation and the goodness of God in many areas and many ways. Her heartbeat is to see His Kingdom grow here, to assist people in becoming more aware of their individual purpose and to experience the community and society growing in goodness.
Her message will bring hope and encouragement to all.
