Life Stories

Everyone has a story. And every Believer has a testimony. Below you will find video recordings of some people that are part of the Gilmour Church family. Please take some time to watch them. Learn about their lives and hear how God rescued, and saved them.

Ernie Trotter – The youngest of 13 children, nearly died when he was just a young boy after being hit by a car. His older sister Sadie, a WW2 nurse, was instrumental in his recovery.
Helen Trotter – Born in Quebec, Helen’s mother died not long after she was born. After being given up for adoption, Helen faced horrific trauma. But that was not the end of her story. She met Jesus, and not many years later, her beloved husband Ernie. On December 19, 2022 they will celebrate 58 years married!

John and Margaret Whatman have been friends of Gilmour Church for many years.  Though we don't see them as often as we used to because of the stairs at Gilmour and their health, we deeply appreciate the faith and witness of this special couple.  Below you will find two videos recorded in the summer of 2023.  In those videos, John shares a word of testimony and an experience he had when in the hospital.  Be encouraged by the Lord's grace and work in their lives.
