_0005_obit Henry ToewsIn 1924, Henry’s family immigrated to Canada, settling in Waldheim, Sask. He attended school in Waldheim, Colonsay, Viscount, Young and Guernsey. He accepted Jesus as Saviour, relying on John 3:36. He served in Sunday school, on the deaconate and the church board, as registrar and moderator. During WWII, he was in the alternative service camps in Banff and on Vancouver Island. Henry and Agatha together strived to walk the straight and narrow way in Jesus’ strength. Farming was an interesting challenge. They found the Lord merciful (Psalm 103:8).
