Larry Steers stopped going to meetings at the age of 13 out of frustration with the gospel. Then at 18 he set his face to leave home and enjoy the world. Heading to Toronto, he ended up in a prayer meeting and a gospel meeting where he was impressed by the evident care Albert Joyce (one of the preachers) had for his soul. Then word came through that Larry’s father was dying. Heading home he made it to the bedside and heard his father’s last words, “Goodbye boys”. Larry was determined not to cry at the funeral. He steeled himself to make it through that difficult day and head back to his worldly life and forget about the gospel, but God had other plans. Larry told his touching life story at a conference in Wisconsin in 2012.
