More About Mitch
What Char Has to say...
Mitch is a multi-faceted human being. He's a pastor, photographer, musician, tech whiz, husband, father, hunter, athlete, and Canadian. He's one of the most extroverted people I know. He loves music, computers, photography, adoption, teenagers, fatherhood, food, exercise, and Jesus (though not necessarily in that order). Mitch loves meeting new people. Striking up conversations with complete strangers is not uncommon when out and about with my husband. He definitely forces me out of my shell.
Mitch is a very gentle person. He tells me he used to have a very difficult time controlling his anger when he was younger. I find that hard to believe, because I've always known him to be a very joy-filled, even-tempered person. He is a true testimony of how The Lord can change a person's heart.
Watching Mitch become a father to Emmanuel has been a true joy. You would never believe that the word "adoption" once caused anxiety in this man. His transition into fatherhood has been so smooth and so natural. Our son adores his "dada." I think Emmanuel's favorite time of day is when Mitch gets home.
Mitch is a hard-worker. As a young person, his parents instilled in him the discipline of self-motivation and working hard. This is a trait he hopes to instill in our children also. Although somewhat of a procrastinator, Mitch is a goal-setter and a bit of a dreamer. I have seen him push past his natural procrastination tenancies to reach his goals. When working toward something of great value, he is very dedicated and will do whatever it takes to achieve his goals. He is a team-player and works well with others (though very much dislikes the responsibility of delegation... can't say I blame him!)
Mitch is very valued and admired by all the members he serves at our church.
