First Assembly church hosting guest speaker

PLATTSBURGH — The Rev. Rose-Aimee Bordeleau will minister at the 10:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. services Sunday at First Assembly of God, 164 Prospect Ave.

Born to a Franco-Ontarian family with religious traditions, Bordeleau was exposed at a young age to the miraculous intervention of God. During her adolescence, she experienced abuse from her alcoholic father over a long period of time, which provoked in her painful emotional scars. As an adult, her artistic career opened up another world of  harsh reality, as alcohol and drugs became her universe. Through her brokenness and a deep sense of emptiness, she tried to kill herself at the age of 22, and at the age of 29, she overdosed, but God had a plan for her life. In 1982, in her quest for profound peace and forgiveness, she became a follower of Jesus. He transformed her life of hopelessness into a victorious life, consecrated to the service of God.

Bordeleau has a bachelor’s degree in theology from Master’s College and Seminary. She served as senior pastor of a church in the Montreal region for five years and has been senior pastor of La Mission Rapha in Montreal for the past seven years. She has conducted evangelistic services for seven years in Canada, the United States and Africa under Raphah Worldwide Ministries, which she founded. She has also produced and recorded an original album called “Purest Love,” and she wrote a book entitled “ Breaking the Silence.” As well, she has had a weekly radio program for the past 16 years.
