David was facing a terminal illness when a friend brought him to hear Will Graham preach the Gospel in Northwest Territories. “It takes guts to take a stand for Christ,” David heard Will say. “But you’ll never regret it. Don’t let this moment slip by.” David didn’t. As Will gave an invitation, David said yes to Christ: “Will said he’d made a lot of mistakes and it was God who helped him; I thought He could help me too.”
