I was born and raised in a little fishing village on the Labrador coast. Some years later, I got a job with a mining company at Seven Islands, Quebec. At first I put money away and even sent some home, but soon I began to drink and gamble and the money went as fast as I made it.
After many a night of drinking we would put the little motor car on the railway track and head back up to the camps, not knowing at what corner we would meet a train. One weekend a young man came to me and said, “Newf, let’s go to town for a good time.” This is what we thought was real happiness. We went down the sixteen miles and got our room and booze for the weekend. The ‘good time’ ended in a brawl on Sunday night so I took a taxi to Mile 12 and walked the rest of the way home.
The first news that I received the next morning was that my buddy had been killed! After walking to the scene of the accident, I saw something I will never forget. As I looked down at the mutilated remains of my buddy, I thought of his family, and what sorrow and grief this would bring to them. I thought about home and I longed to see my own loved ones again. I left for home soon after.
When I arrived, there was talk of a new religion in our village. I went out to listen one night and the preacher spoke of heaven and hell. He said that those that die without Christ would be in hell. I became so angry that as I left I tore the door off its hinges. But when I got home I started to think: “If what he’s saying is right, then I’m wrong!”
I had never read the Bible before, but I had always thought it to be true, so I got out Eaton’s catalogue and ordered a Bible. Thank God, that was one time Eaton’s didn’t send a substitute! After reading it for two months, one night in my room I came to the verse: “Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”1 That very night I trusted Christ as my Saviour.
I can truly say, the worst day I’ve had since I’ve been saved has been better than the best day I had before I was saved. The fifty-five years since I received Christ as my Saviour have been the happiest years of my life. Above all, I know for sure that whenever this life comes to an end, it will be heaven and home for all eternity.
Will you not, right now, trust Christ as your Saviour? “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved.”2
