Passion for Christ Feature
My name is Arnold Hamisi (aka GiftedVisions) and I am an artist.
Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo in the 90’s and raised in Winnipeg Manitoba, my life has been quite the journey, filled with ups and downs and many eye opening experiences. I have acquired many skills and found a passion for being passionate.
Though I may be a multifaceted artist who dabbles in music, writing, dance, graffiti and fashion, my main form of expression is through my photography.
I go by the name of GiftedVisions because I believe that my gift is from God!
I attend church and serve faithfully at my second home, Transforming Life Center Ottawa. I remember being in church during a conference and I heard the Holy Spirit tell me to go pick up a camera. Mind you, I knew nothing about cameras but right when I touched it I felt something in me shift and a lightbulb lit up in my head. I had struck gold!
From that day forward I began to grow in the craft of capturing and creating moments and emotions.
Now I run a photography business and I love what I do. One thing I truly believe , is that God will use the skills He has given me to reach out to young people, who are where I used to be; lost in addictions, depressions, the troubles of life, or youth who just feel like there’s more to life than their current situations. I walk in my faith every day of my life because i know that without Jesus Christ and His love for the imperfect person that I am, I would not be alive today.
