Belinda Limqueko-Mag-uyon is a newcomer and came to Canada at the height of winter during the COVID-19 pandemic. She had to immigrate before her visa expired to not lose her chance of becoming a permanent resident. Together with her husband and youngest daughter, Belinda was sponsored by her oldest daughter, a Canadian citizen and nurse in Winnipeg.

For Belinda, immigrating to Canada was a leap of faith as she had a good and stable job in her home country and served God in a charismatic Catholic community. Her decision to come to Canada was not made lightly. She would be leaving her comfort zone, be in an entirely new environment, have to look for a new job, find her way around and familiarize herself with a new culture. The most challenging and emotional aspect of immigrating would be leaving behind her two sons. Despite all odds, she believed that everything has a purpose, and God would not allow everything to happen if it was not according to His will.

Praise the Lord
