On this site, our son Ruud wants to tell you something by means of. his testimony. Ruud was born on July 29, 1986 and grows up as a very ordinary Dutch boy. He goes to school and will eventually graduate in Zwolle from the Windesheim University of Applied Sciences in the direction of Business Administration (M.E.R. Management Economics and Law). After his studies, he started working as an insurance adviser at a financial consultancy. Ruud is a nice sincere boy, social and loved by many people. On March 29, 2019 Ruud married Janneke.
Ruud has been suffering from back and stomach problems for some time. After a visit to the doctor, at the beginning of 2020, it is decided to have a gastroscopy, but it does not come to that. People around Ruud notice that he sees yellow. Ruud visits the doctor and he has a blood test done. This study shows high liver values and therefore Ruud is referred to an MDL (Gastrointestinal Liver) doctor. After a CT scan, the fear is expressed that it is bile duct cancer. After further investigations, the doctors come to the conclusion that it is indeed bile duct cancer, caused by PSC (Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis).
After one of the many hospital visits, Ruud comes home on Sunday 15 March at 11:00 am, he then goes to rest because he wants to go to church that afternoon at 3:00 pm for his testimony and baptism of faith. We know that Ruud would have liked to share his testimony with many people, so you can listen or read it here.
On Sunday afternoon, April 19, 2020, Ruud was taken home by his Heavenly Father.
