  • Geoff - Honestly am busy each and every one of these nights - a blessing, not complaining/not bragging. Otherwise I'd definitely be into it.
  • Northern Pakistan, alongside the Afghanistan border, is home to one of the most dangerous places in the world. A frequent site of ******* bombings, IEDs and violent attacks, this border region serves as a gateway for terrorists to pass through and operate from. On Saturday at 6 PM, JAYU introduces Toronto for the first time to 34 men, led by Shafqat Malik, who risk their lives daily to protect innocent civilians from bomb explosions. Catch the Toronto Premiere of ARMED WITH FAITH this Saturday! Tickets on sale at jayu.ca/armed-with-faith
