St Mary's Free Church, Govan - D L Moody (1874)

Take one case in illustration: Mr Howie's church, where every Sunday, for two months or so, the pastor had an after-meeting, every one of which has been marked with results which will be recorded in the annals of eternity. So the way was well prepared for Messrs. Moody and Sankey to commence their labours. There, as elsewhere, they have the same old story of their work, churches and halls crowded to overflowing day after day and night after night: many coming, as can be seen, out of sheer curiosity: but with more than one of such the Lord has graciously met in an unexpected hour and manner like. A young lady of talent and education was thus unexpectedly met by the Lord in November in Edinburgh. Immediately on her conversion she began to testify for God. The result is, that she lost her situation as a governess in a family of station. "But I do not mind that," she said; "how could I help speaking to the little ones of Jesus? " " In this district Rev. Mr Howie reported that "the number of applications for tickets for the meetings to be held there was quite overwhelming, and they had to make selections in the distribution. When Christians applied for them they received them only on the condition that they would give them to unconverted people."
