Kevin Garratt is a graduate of the University of Toronto. Kevin and his wife, Julia moved to China, where they worked passionately for 30 years, assisting with education, humanitarian work, and Christian social enterprises. From 2008 to 2014 they ran a popular coffee house on the China/North Korea border and facilitated aid to North Korea.
They were abducted and held for 2 years in a prison in China on false espionage charges. But as they quote out of Genesis 50:20, God meant it for good…
They have written a book about those two years: Two Tears on the Window
