Listen as Paul Thomas relates his life story, which begins with him rebelling against his Christian upbringing and becoming deeply involved in the “dark side” of life.

Bob Surgenor’s Testimony of Salvation (54 min)

Robert Surgenor (1928- ) tells the amazing story of God’s grace and mercy to him during the first 24 years of his life when, first as a mischievous child and then as a reckless youth, he had repeated brushes with death but was spared every time.

Moving to Perth, Scotland (photo above), to work in the Health Service, he met a young lady called Anna who was later to become his wife (whose godly mother was praying daily for the salvation of both of them).

Mr. Baiju Balan’s Testimony of Salvation (43 min)

Raised culturally Hindu, but also occasionally attending church services, Mr Baiju Balan did not hear the gospel until he was 20 years old. Pressured to pray a “prayer for salvation” before he even understood he was lost, Baiju carried on unchanged in his sins.

Another tried to get Baiju to put his name in this and…

Aaron Callaghan’s Testimony of Salvation (24 min)

Baptised as an 8 day old baby and given communion from 6 months old, Clive Barber spent the first 17 years of his life in a legalistic religious sect that held Christian meetings every day of the year.
