John Toisma was born into a religious home in the Netherlands in 1947. Emigrating as a young lad to British Columbia, Canada, John continued to be religiously minded, but was not saved. His mother died very tragically when John was 15. Then a preacher from a local Gospel Hall by the name of Lou Swaan contacted John and got him out to a gospel meeting. Afterwards, Lou asked him if he had ever been born again. John said “Yes”, and proceeded to relate a story from his life where God had healed him in answer to prayer. Lou Swaan followed up with a devastating question: “How long, before that event, were you a lost sinner on the way to hell?”. John was stunned. He had never been a sinner on the way to hell! Lou’s question had done its work. It had exposed the fact that John had never been born again. Follow John’s story as the Lord worked in his life, finally saving him in 1967 through the words of John 3:36.
