Fernand and Yolande were born and raised in Roman Catholic francophone families in the city of Trois-Rivières (Québec). Following an outstanding tract distribution by mail from Assemblies in Toronto, Christian Workers visited Fernand’s home in 1947. Shortly after, the whole family came to Christ and the Assembly at the Cap-de-la-Madeleine saw its very beginning in the home of his newly converted parents. On April 10, 1947, Fernand took his Dad’s French New Testament and read all the verses his Dad had underlined in red. All of those verses spoke about God’s free Gift of Salvation through Christ. But it was John 3:17 & 18 that spoke loud and clear to his young heart: «God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. ». Fernand asked God in a sincere word of repentance to become his personal Saviour. Fernand’s wife, Yolande, came to the Lord and to the chapel with her Dad. By then, the Assembly had grown tremendously and was meeting in a new building. Yolande was working as a secretary. They were married in 1957 and after their first child was born, they attended Bethel Bible Institute as full-time students.
Since 1963, Fernand has been the Radio speaker of the French Gospel Radio Program La Foi Vivifiante; when evangelical radio programs were practically still unheard of in affluent areas of Quebec, and from 1977 to 1997, the producer and host of the French Gospel Television Program Toute la Bible en parle. The radio program (La Foi Vivifiante) is currently heard in Montreal and South west Québec through WCHP. Through Quebec radio stations it is heard in Rimouski and Hauterive. It is also heard in Miami, New York City, France and Haïti and on the Internet on a Christian website called Top-Chrétien, Top-TV.
