It’s been over 10 years since I was driving home from work one evening and heard Alistair’s voice on the radio. I heard him mention on the anniversary broadcast “Why would anyone want to hear that ‘funny’ voice?” Actually, the accent is what drew me in. From there I started getting the incredible message.
I grew up in a great Dutch reformed church in Rochester, NY, but it was not until continual, daily listening to Truth For Life that it all started to set in and make a difference. My grandparents were remarkable Christians that hid close to 200 Jewish, American, and Canadian pilots during the Nazi occupation in Holland, demonstrating true brotherly love. So Christian people have been around me my whole life, but your broadcast encouraging me to open the Bible was the key.
I listen every morning on the Truth For Life phone app as I make a 25-minute drive to teach. Before that I used to buy the CDs and listen in the car. I have listened at home, in the car, and out in the woods. I have learned so much in 10 years from a combination of your broadcasts and reading the Scripture on a daily basis, and I discuss the sermons with friends on a regular basis.
The sermons have brought me to realize the complete truth of God's Word and the importance of turning to the Bible for answers. Life definitely has its challenges, and it’s comforting to now know where the answers are located.
