EVANGELIST f i I e TERETT WILSOR
Told the Story o f His Life and
Last Monday night Evangelist Ev

wonderful experience of salvation.
Born in Kansas be spent hie early
years on the plains of the Platte riv

Hie father, though a preacher,
parted with hi« son behind the pris
on bars because of some criminal of
fense, and the little lad tor yearn
never knew why his expected father
never came home to him.
In this early period when about
twelve years old he felt the call to
preach the gospel— a call that never
left him but insinuated itself into
bis unhappy, rebellious soul In hia
wildest hours. The mother had mar
ried a rough frontiersmen, and all
through his teens the boy followed
the reckless, vicious, wild life with
which he was surrounded. After
years of this desperate eareer, feared
and hated! he found himself In Ore

two states to dog his mental foot
Hie home was now in tha ft lean
country of Oregon, and with matur
ity came the determination to live a
more respectable life. He heard at
a preaching service In a school house
a mile away and went. The second
night the conviction was so strong
regarding hia sin that In trying to
leave the place he fell upon hia taco
and seemed paralyzed in body. Ho
could not walk, he could not stand.
They carried him to his home aad
here he lay upon the floor for over •
week, unable to find any release
from his torment, while bis mother
and brother feared for his sanity
and no one knew what was the mat
s One day when his brother had
gone to a distant town for medicine
and his mother left the house for a

Then suddenly he was conscious
of a person present, though unseen,
who laid a strong grasp upon hia
shoulders, turned him from his
course and almost forced him to his
knees by his mother's bedside. Here
with the cry of "God forgive me!'*
higstubborn spirit surrendered to bin
Maker and the Joy of salvation
flooded his soul. Thrilling In all hia
being and with a glad shout he cried
"Ma, my sins are forgiven,” and the
frightened mother hastened to the
house fearing her son had gone in
sane. It was the end of a long
struggle and for twenty years now
he has walked in the path of praise
and Joyous salvation.
But the trail of sin had to be m ad»
right. Letters of confession had to.
be written to h ro governors in
whose states he had been guilty o f
criminal acts. He holds the letters
assuring him that they hold e a
charge against him. Restitution to
the amount of about $2000 required
the unremitting toil of seventeen
years but is now all paid and the.
guilty wanderer now stands free be

Sopie night Mr. WUaon has prom
ised to tell of hia wonderful healing
when physicians had given him up
to die of a loathsome disease. How
God touched his body and has kept
him strong through the eight years
of strenuous toil since that day.

Next Monday morning at 10 there
will be a preparatory meeting for
those who wish to be healed, and at
some of the services next week
prayer will he offer«# for the healing
of the sick. Those who truly desire
healing should be present at as many
services as possible.
Ail persons wishing to confess
Christ openly will be encouraged to
unite with the church of their own
