In his spare time, Kyrel enjoys watching movies, reading, writing and performing spoken word, and eating just about anything.
This Sunday is Undie Sunday. The Journey is collecting new and clean under garments, socks and toiletries, which we will be donating to Regeneration Outreach Community. Drop by The Journey this week, or come out this Sunday to donate to this great cause!
The Journey updated its internet connection, which meant we had to get a new phone number. Our new number is: 905-230-8 Triple 6. In case you are wondering about the “Tripe 6” I have written it this way, because of the potential of BOTS scanning our posts. We get enough calls for Duct Cleaning as it is!
