Murray McCandless relates the story of his conversion. Raised in St Thomas, Ontario, in a Christian family, he grew up learning memory verses in Sunday School. As a child he would often ask his parents to tell him how they were saved. He was awakened to his own need of salvation at the age of 12 under the preaching of Oswald McLeod at the Sarnia Conference. He tried to get saved, but could not understand what he needed to do. He asked God to save him but no light came. The next day, still seeking, he picked up a gospel tract and found a verse through which the light of truth dawned upon his soul (Testimony given 7th April 2001 in Coleraine).
