Bula! We are Isi and Tessa Masi from Fiji and Steinbach. We are the directors of Island Breeze Manitoba and are so blessed to be a part of this exciting ministry. We have two beautiful girls Silina-Kae and Miriama Joy. Our hearts are to always be discipling ourselves and those around us on our team. We enjoy the expressions of music & dance that God has gifted Island Breeze with as well as the DTS program that we run each May that changes the lives of young people. We are very blessed to be working alongside such a great team!
Hi, my name is Samantha Passage. I grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba but have been living in Steinbach since 2006. I am First Nations and my reserve is Garden Hill. I have been serving with Island Breeze Manitoba since my DTS in 2011. In my ministry this year God has been speaking to me about being a light and not keeping my light hidden but to shine it for all to see.
Aloha! My name is Kristi Hill and I’m from Red Lake, Ontario. The idea of YWAM and doing a DTS was suggested to me at the beginning of last year. I wanted to do a DTS in Hawaii but decided to choose a location closer to home before flying across the world. Island Breeze Manitoba seemed to showcase everything I love about the tropics, and so last year in 2016 I decided to move to Steinbach for the summer to do my DTS. My experience as a student was so great, I decided to come back and join staff. This will be my first year as a staff member serving with Island Breeze Manitoba, and so far, I love what I’m doing and the people I get to work with daily! Since my DTS, I believe God put in my heart the love for Polynesian dancing. I am very excited about dancing with the production team, as well as digging deeper into my relationship with God and helping others in theirs. God has blessed me so much this past year and I’m really excited to see all He has in store for me during this step in my life.
