The Life Story of Aina Torell
by John S.
Someone once coined the phrase, “Behind every
successful man is a woman.” I can say that I am a successful man because I
made Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour in 1965 and have walked with Him since
that day. However, this is not about me but the story of my wife who has been at
my side since we were married in 1961. I was only 20 years old and plagued with
an Arrested Development spirit that none of us knew anything about until the mid
1980's, but God used Aina to rescue my shipwrecked life.
I was chasing women, using alcohol and smoking
cigarettes when I met Aina. She gave me an ultimatum after the third week of
dating to make a choice between her or alcohol and the other women. I didn't
want to lose Aina but still continued to smoke. Eventually she encouraged me to
stop when I was up to three packs a day. She helped me through college by
working full-time, and when I was flunking out because I didn't do the homework,
she stood by my side as I worked hard to finish my degree. The night before we
were to leave for the United States, I nearly chickened out and told her I did
not want to go, but she stood firm and wouldn't let me change my mind.
Later when we were in Salt Lake City, I laid on a
hospital bed close to death, my little wife pleaded with God on my behalf and I
was healed. When I entered the ministry and enrolled at seminary, she worked
hard as a nurse’s aid to help me get through and traveled with me as the wife of
an evangelist with no place to call home. She has been a pastor’s wife since
1975 and taken all the pressure and abuse that comes with being one. She has
stood by my side through all the church splits, facing Christians who acted more
like demons than children of God.
This is the woman that I married; she is a
survivor and a fervent prayer warrior for Christ. I am proud to offer her book,
and for the first time you will have a chance to get to know a little shy girl
from a village in Sweden who is now a terror to the Devil and his demons.
Reading Aina’s book will make you laugh, cry and shake your head; her faith in
God will encourage you to believe that nothing is impossible with God! I met
Aina in 1959, now it’s your turn to meet this woman of faith!
