Elly Gouthro, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia

Hi!! My name is Elly and I’m from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia! My favourite place to be is by the ocean and I’m blessed to live here on an island – surrounded by water! I love surfing and listening to the waves. I also love making music, gardening, writing and going on hikes!

When I was 14, I had the opportunity to attend a NET retreat with my confirmation class. I had never heard of the ministry and I was really inspired by these people who were so alive in their faith and so joyful! I remember being really impacted and the experience stuck with me for the years that followed. It ignited something in my heart. At the end of the retreat, I remember I told my mom “I want to be a part of NET Canada someday.” It became clear more recently that this was what God was calling me to do. After a lot of prayer and discernment, I’ve decided to answer the call and join the mission! I couldn’t be more excited to be able to give young people what I’ve received and share the transforming love of Christ!!

It would be amazing to have your support for this mission year – prayerfully or, if you’re able to, financially. If you should decide to give $50 or more, or donate monthly, you will receive a NET newsletter and personal updates from the road throughout the year! Thank you so much for anything you are able to contribute!!
