Werner’s family moved to Glenbush, Sask., in 1928 to begin farming. At Avery School, Werner’s favourite subject was recess. He spent countless hours walking behind horse-drawn harrows. Glenbush MB Church was a weekly part of growing up. As a teen, Werner accepted Jesus as Saviour. When the church had no pastor, Werner attended Belbutte Full Gospel Church, where pastor Floyd Berg became his friend. On a cold, wet, snowy day, Werner and Martha began married life. Their children brought him joy. Horses were always an important part of his life. He enjoyed participating in parades with show wagon and harness, volunteering at the Battleford’s Western Museum and on a few wagon treks. Werner was involved in several serious accidents, but the Lord restored him. Werner believed you needed the Lord’s blessings on the labour of your hands (Psalm 127:1). When the present Glenbush MB Church building was built, Werner was a part of the construction crew., shoveling gravel for the basement and sawing lumber by hand. Werner enjoyed the new life the grandchildren brought into the family. They will remember the whisker rubs they received after he caught them.
