From Bennie Hill: Rodney (Gypsy) Smith, 1860-1947), was born in a tent, raised on a Gypsy camp, never attended a school – not even for a day! Yet, he influenced the lives of millions of people for God through his powerful preaching. (Methodist Evangelist) He was converted in 1876 (age 16) and, the next year, was invited by General William Booth to join him in evangelistic work. He served as an officer with the Salvation Army until 1882. He then began ministering as an itinerant evangelist working with a variety of organizations all over the world, but particularly in Britian and American. This was his own personal evaluation of himself: “I’m God’s messenger from the gypsy tent. And it’s the message that’s important, not the messenger.”

SPECIAL REPORT FROM MISSIONARIES

Sophia Galanis, Amarillidos 27, 15341 Athens, Greece

(Info. submitted by: Emie (Galanis) Paschos

My mother’s (Sophia Galanis) situation is very bad, some days her communication is OK, but most days she is not with us mentally. She is able to take very few steps a day, and then she is in a wheelchair.

The GOOD NEWS is that a few months ago a man called Titus asked to get a hold of my father’s correspondence lessons. My father as many of you know had been evangelizing the Greek people through correspondence for years. Thousands of people had received even a few copies which led them to read through the Bible. Every lesson was for each book of the N. Testament. This man Titus who works with computers is going to put these lessons up on line on September 15th.

I thank God for this new turn of events and I wish that for one more time the word of God will enter Greek homes and that the study of the Bible will unlock many hearts and turn them towards God. I am happy for my father and his work “though he is dead he still speaks”.

That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
