Walking On Thin Ice!
I was born and
raised on a farm just north of Greenville, Michigan, and was
the fourth of five children.
When I was just 1˝ years
old, my dad was tearing down a building on the farm, and did
not know that I was right behind him.
He swung around with a board that had a nail sticking out of

going a little would keep us on good terms.
But then the Lord began to
get my attention.
One day when my wife

On another occasion, I went out fishing with a relative who
had been drinking some alcohol.

I was getting to the point in my life where I was ready to

The next day, a man

The first night, I thought
that someone must have told the evangelist all about my
life, the way he was preaching against sin.
That was the first time I
ever remember hearing that I was a lost sinner; that Jesus
died on the cross to save me; that He arose from the grave

Him to save me, He would do so.
The next day, I kept thinking
about what he had said, and decided
that I did need Jesus.
When I got home, my wife

repent of your sins, and accept the gift of salvation
through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ?

him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
to them that believe on his name” (Holy Bible, John 1:12,
“Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe
that you are the Son of God; that you are God Almighty in

save my soul.

faithfully attend the services there.
