Hi I'm Jim Van Wyk

I have lived all my life in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I own a real estate company and a property management company

About Me

I have alway lived my life serving others. In Boy Cubs and Scouts (almost 45 years ago) I was taught to do a good turn for someone every day and I have lived that for most of my life. We moved around a lot when I was younger becouse my dad was unemployed quite often. He did his best but with very little education and an immigrant to Canada with limited english. Grade 1-6 was in the West End at Principal Sparling School where I met many of my lifetime freinds. Grade 7 was at Sargent Park School which seamed like a huge school to me and I did not do well there and failed grade 7. We moved in the country just past the overpass on #1 highway. I went to Bellevue School and completed grade 7. We had a little hobby farm where we had geese, chickens, ducks, rabbits and a St Bernard dog. We than rented a house on Pritchard near Mcphillips and walked to Andrew Minarski School (3 miles away) where I excelled. Sargent Park was my last grade school as I was like other kids my age thinking school did not matter. I worked labour jobs until one day when I hurt my back. EI sent me back to school to get upgraded and work as an accountant. After 3 years of training I left RRCC with no work and no sign of work a major accounting firm closed and the 125 students in my course could not find work. I always wanted to be a realtor so I took the course and since 1990 I have been a Realtor selling homes to and for my clients and freinds.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe the Book of Mormon is the words of God and if I beleive that it is the words of god than I must Join that church.

How I live my faith

I do many things in the community. I run our wards 2012 & 2013 collection of food for the Winnipeg Food Bank, I prep food for a mission once a month for about 250 men,woman, and children. I work at the Chistmas Cheer Board when I can and the Red Cross. We as a church do many things that I will not mention as we do those things privately and with a careing heart.
