I was just speaking of this wonderful man yesterday. Just saw the obituary today. He was speaking at North Baptist Church in Flint, Michigan when I was 12 in 1965. I was saved that night through his preaching. Have never forgotten him. So sad to hear of his passing, but, because of his ministry, I know I will see him again in Heaven. My prayers for your comfort.

My heart is heavy and saddened for your family and for the loss of such an amazing man. I had the honor and privilege to be of service to Mr. Aarum in the hospital. His presence and personality were infectious with his will and soul deep need to reach each and every person he met on a personal level, this was an awesome experience to behold. I am sending and saying prayers for the entire family that you might feel Gods peace and comfort in this time of sorrow. I’m praying of thanksgiving to our Father for putting Mr. Aarum in my path so that I had the chance to meet him and share in Gods work. Peace be with you on your journey home❤️

My heart goes out to Marge and her family with much love and sadness. I was 13 when she and Rev. Aarum came to our church in West Falls, NY.. They were a very special part of my life. Rev. Aarum showed us the way - and all of us young people gave our hearts to the Lord. I don't know where our lives would be today if it wasn't for him.
I thank God always for bringing Rev. Aarum to our town so many years ago! My love & prayers are with you Marge, and all the family. May God Bless you all, and keep you in His care.
Love in Jesus,
Sally WEINHEIMER - Anger

I have fond memories of Mr. Wes when I attended Circle C Ranch with the Wursts and when he would come to the Wursts and give the Sermonette at the Rodeo and would minister in music and sharing the Gospel at the Alliance Church! He was most certainly an evangelist, a helper of the underprivileged and lost souls! So glad he is praising his Savior and the Father in person! My condolence to the family and friends. We are homeward bound as well. Rejoice!!
