Sean & Vera O’Byrne

Bio

Sean and Vera are missionaries in Belize, working among the assemblies and ministering to intercity youth and the poor. Sean’s primary work is Bible teaching and promoting leadership from among the saints through Bible studies, camp, mentoring, literature and teams (eTeams with MSC, www.eteams.ca ). Vera reaches out to the poor, works with the Sunday school and also mentors many girls and young ladies through friendship and kindness. Sean was saved in Northern Ontario at 19 as a dropout and arriving from Vancouver where he was living on the streets. Vera was saved and then, while attending Bible college (1985 Kawartha Lakes Bible College, Peterborough, ON), was called to be a missionary. Sean went to the same Bible college the year after and then became a nurse briefly. Their mutual burden for missions helped bring them together and they were commended in 1995 by Matheson Gospel Chapel and Grace Bible Chapel, both in Northern Ontario. Sean and Vera have been missionaries in Central America and full-time workers in Ontario since then. In Guatemala (1995-2001) and Belize (2016 - 2019), they also visit the assemblies in Cuba annually and other countries like Ireland and most recently Spain. Sean and Vera have two grown children who are married and love the Lord. The grandchildren count is at two, with another due in November! Sean loves reading, fishing, hockey, but mostly reading. Vera loves her grandchildren, gratitude journaling and riding her bike.
