A mother’s persistence creates a legacy for the Chitungo sisters at TWU. Living in Canada seemed like an impossible dream for Zimbabwean sisters Rufaro, Rutendo, and Ruvimbo Chitungo. But their mother believed it would happen one day, and faithfully tried to make that dream a reality. In 2003, the Chitungo family relocated to Belize, […]
What difference can one person make? A lot, when God is the one who gives the call. If you were to walk around Trinity Western’s campus today and ask a student — or even a professor — about the history of the Strombeck Centre, you’d not likely get much of an answer. Far away and […]
An Interview with Wally Buono and Christie Buono Schlecker Before the whistle blows and the BC Lions storm the field, head coach Wally Buono walks to the 50-yard line where his daughter, Christie Buono Schlecker, waits for him.

What I’ve come to realize is that each of these jobs is founded on the sole beauty of creativity. Without the presence of a creative mind, I simply would not succeed in either profession.
My mother’s hands folded faithfully in prayer for her children, praying Scripture over us and handing us over to the Lord. It was my mother’s hands that helped steer and guide me through the obstacles in life.
If you’re close to my husband and I, you know how challenging the period between August 2015 – February 2016 was for us (okay, definitely longer if I’m being completely honest). But since you’re reading this article on Trinity Western’s Alumni page and I only graced Trinity’s campus for a brief 4 years and the […]
