  • In the hospital, he was given a New Testament by one of his soccer players. Vance did not know this guy was even a Christian ‘till then. After finishing reading other literature, about 1 month later (obviously, not grabbing the Bible for a crutch); Vance read the complete New Testament. He realized that only a supernatural force could have causes the hundreds of Old Testament prophecies to be precisely fulfilled in the events encompassing Jesus’ life.
  • He became Born Again, Oct. 85.
  • He thought, without God, the best I ever was, was a genius of an idiot. If I would have learned this stuff as a young child & took it to heart, my life truly would have been superior. I am 27; I can dedicate the next 3 years until I am 30; reading, studying & applying the Bible to my life or bang my head against the wall, learning it the hard way, for the next 10-20 years.
  • In the 1st month, while Vance was primarily focused on personal change, the Lord impressed very clearly in his mind, “I am going to use your educational abilities to teach you to teach others.”   
  • He read the New Testament another 2-3x’s & the book of Acts an additional 4x’s the 1st month & the complete Old Testament the 2nd month.
  • He read the Bible 8-16 hours a day for the 1st 3 months; an average of about 8 hours per day for about 3 years.
  • In spite of his education he never read any other book entirely through more than once, except the Bible numerous times, because it is not only fascinating, but the only book you could read all day, every day for the rest of your life & never stop learning ... because it is supernaturally authored.

1990: God appeared to Vance, in a White Cloud for 20 minutes & called him to ministry.

1990 - 2000: Compelled by, the best way to succeed with God is to serve others; the homeless, abused, disadvantaged, substance abusers, naïve, etc.:

§       Founded ‘Bread of Life Ministries’ nonprofit society.

§       Started numerous Ministry Houses in Vancouver, British Columbia.

§       Bible Camp near Cultus Lake, B.C.

1999: I was being harassed by a young police officer, who antagonistic to me, because I was a Christian, though I was a positive influence in the neighborhood, even though with the apartment manager next to our ministry houses, saved the Non Profit Neighborhood Policing facility, by designing, posting flyers & putting on a free dinner for the community at the church we attended – for public awareness of the said facility. This officer organized 2 raids on our houses in 6 months. A Stock Broker, we helped off the streets, knew the previous Mayor’s son, who was a lawyer. This Lawyer arranged a news meeting at our houses, to address the issue. This led to VTV News, ultimately doing a 5 minute Feature Story, on the houses, the dogs & myself …

VTV News – Feature Story of the Year. In the video, the announcer refers to me as the “Pitbull Prophet” per the 1988 nickname Pitbull for Jesus, some Christian brothers coined, because of my ability to captivate people, when sharing the gospel. I had forgotten about the nickname until this video.

2001: January, Vance went to Southern California, after God spoke to him in a dream, confirming a previous 1994 dream, given to him by God in San Antonio Texas. God wanted Vance to be in the USA when 911 happened to observe subsequent world events from a USA perspective.
