We are a Christian family of nine (soon to be ten) living in Alberta, Canada, looking for like-minded preppers to form a group, or join a group. We would love to know if there are other Christian, family-oriented preppers in Alberta.
I am a Certified Journeyman Carpenter (I am very able to build a home/log home from foundation to rooftop) with enough high quality tools to easily furnish a small Cabinetry shop (currently in storage, with the exception of basic hand and power tools which I have with us). I have a very strong desire to have a godly, knowledgeable family of hard-working children. Family is extremely important to us, and we are most interested (though not exclusively) in meeting like-minded families.
Christ and Scripture are our greatest loves. We are passionate in our belief in the all-sufficiency of Scripture to answer all questions pertaining to life and faith. Above all else, this is our greatest conviction. While we do prefer the Geneva or the authorized KJV Bible translations, we are not dogmatic about exclusivity of the use of these translations.
I have a slowly growing knowledge of older, carburated vehicles (self-taught and still learning). We have (up until our move into our “mobile homestead”) raisied meat rabbits and milking goats. We do not own property. We currently live in our 35 foot “Sojourner” RV trailer, making us very mobile. We own two older carburated 4×4 vehicles. One is a Suburban, one a heavy duty crew-cab pick-up truck, and both with lift kits and large off-road tires.
We are debt-free. We feel strongly that maintaining a debt-free lifestyle is very important, and is first and foremost in our ideology for maintaining true freedom. We home school our children, and are passionate about ensuring our children excel academically, and receive a higher than average education.
Mrs. Carpenter is skilled and knowledgable in food storage, making wine, canning, gardening, an astoundingly fantastic cook/baker, soap-making, wilderness survival and first-aid, and becoming skilled at knitting, etc.
Our children are aged 10 and younger, very mature for their ages and well-behaved and reverent. The children are all (quite joyfully so) being taught on a regular basis to work, the two oldest girls are avid knitters, readers, bakers, and, as with all the children old enough to understand, avid learners.
We have been blessed to be able to store up much preps, and have learned how to maximize the use of our goods. I am an avid outdoorsman–I am a hunter, shooter, quite knowledgable in wilderness survival, and teaching my children the same. I and the Mrs. and our oldest daughter have recently learned how to naturally tan animal hides as well. My wife and I are always on the same page–she’s my best friend–and we share a common interest in everything including prepping/survival.
We are looking for a group to join/ or to form a group either nearby, or to be with the right people, we may relocate to be closer–(especially now that we are very mobile, living in our “Sojourner” RV trailer). We are excited to meet others of a like mind to share and exchange ideas, knowledge, to perhaps meet with on a regular basis, and if the right situation arises, to share preps if needed.
If there are other, like-minded individuals, families or a group in Alberta, we’d love to get to know you! Please email us at: homesickcarpenter [at] gmail [dot] com
