Sharlene Dickson


Chad Dickson
Chad & Sharlene Dickson welcomed their 3rd child and first son Felix into the world where he was diagnosed shortly after birth with a condition known as Biliary Atresia a rare liver disease one in 18-20,000 babies are born with. In an effort to treat the life threatening condition doctors performed a Kasai procedure which helps to open up the bile ducts and allow. He developed cirrhosis of the liver and accompanying ascites, but life continued on for the family as they continued to feed Felix only healthy foods and natural vitamins in order to give him the best chance possible for a healthy life. But on Felix’s 8th birthday Chad successfully donated a part of his liver to Felix. For the Dickson family all should have been well, but they soon needed to turn their focus to their youngest daughter Cora who had been diagnosed with kidney cysts a few days after her birth. Surgery provided only a temporary fix, and the family needed to prepare themselves for future dialysis, or the possibility of a kidney transplant. Again the family returned to Toronto Sick kids hospital where Chad stepped forward to become a living organ donor once again to donate one of his kidney’s to save his daughter just a little more than a year after donating a large portion of his liver. Today both Cora and Felix continue to grow and are healthy although they will continue to require ongoing medical follow up for their transplants.

Matthew Soerens
Matthew Soerens is the co-author of the book "Seeking Refuge - On the Shores of the Global Refugee Crisis ". Today, there are an estimated sixty million refugees worldwide who have been forced from their home to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster. We can’t ignore the refugee crisis—arguably the greatest geopolitical issue of our time—but how do we even begin to respond to something so massive and complex? Seeking Refuge provides a practical, well-rounded, well-researched guide to the issue. - Who are refugees and other displaced peoples? - What are the real risks and benefits of receiving them? - How do we balance compassion and security? Drawing from history, public policy, psychology, many personal stories, and their own unique Christian worldview, Matthew along with the other two authors, offers a nuanced and compelling portrayal of the plight of refugees and the extraordinary opportunity we have to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Gracia Burnham
After quietly serving God as missionaries in the Philippines for 17 years, suddenly in 2001 a terrorist group kidnapped the Burnhams along with several other people. By November 2001, only the Burnhams and one other hostage remained in captivity. For 376 days Martin and Gracia experienced frequent gun battles, near starvation, and constant exhaustion. They also experienced God’s sustaining grace. On June 7, 2002, Gracia was wounded, but set free through a firefight between the Philippine military and the Burnham’s captors. But in the same gun battle, Martin was killed. The world expected Gracia to be emotionally destroyed by all she suffered. Instead, she chose to trust God and forgive those who took her captive and caused the death of her husband. God has used her testimony to give hope and encouragement to many experiencing life’s difficulties. An able communicator, Gracia’s passion for missions shines through each time she talks about her experiences.

Bill & Bev Beck
VTR Life Story: Bill & Bev Beck Theme: On June 3, 2014 – At the age of 72, Bill Beck suffered a severe cardiac arrest while playing tennis. An EMS worker at the scene called his wife Bev and told her he was dead. Later another EMS worker did get a faint heartbeat, but Bill’s cardiologist said his condition was very bleak. After 12 days on life support and seemingly no hope for a recovery, the doctors told Bev and the family that they could no longer do anything to improve Bill’s unresponsive condition. Based on Bill’s prior directive to not “live as a vegetable”, the family agreed to pull the plug. The day after the plug was pulled, and funeral arrangements were being made, Bev got a call from the hospital to come right away. Bill had in explicably said, Thank You to his sister who was singing in the room. The family and medical team were stunned. Slowly after a few weeks he started to respond more and more, to the point where he was released from the hospital. His doctor called him a walking miracle. Bill feels very fortunate that God has spared him, and tells everyone his story of God’s healing power.
