Student leaves college behind to begin an adventure in Canada

A young man of faith shares his story of how he gave up college and life as he had always known it to go and live in Canada.

Ben Dodsworth, 18, from Stockton-on-Tees, packed up his bags and now lives in Quebec after receiving generous donations from his church congregation and a bold belief that this was his purpose.

Ben, who had travelled to Canada on two previous occasions arrived home at the end of September knowing that he wanted to go back straight away to start a Bible school course called Encounter School of Discipleship.


With no money, Ben, who quit college as soon as he was home, was sure that he would be on a flight back to Canada within a few weeks, packed his bags as a first leap of faith.

With only three days to go before the date he had set out to go donations started to flood in – confirming his faith.

On the 25th September 2015 Ben got on his flight from Durham Tees Valley Airport to Canada after receiving more than $7,000 for his trip.
