I DESIRE TO BE “NOTHING” FOR CHRISTS SAKE

A Report on EVANGELIST F. F. BOSWORTH, in Durban, South Africa
By W illiam Laggar
Durban. South A fric a D E A R L Y B E LO V E D of the L o rd : "P ea ce! “ I am doing m y humble best to report to you the great and wonderful M inistry' o f Evangelist F. F. Bosworth, in the Durban area o f South A frica during the early and m id dle part o f this year. I could not a t tend his g re a t meetings in the Cape Tow n area and other places b efore his com ing to Durban, but I had the pleasure o f being present in n early every m eetin g here in Durban; therefore I speak from m y own personal knowledge of what I heard and saw. “ It w ould fill a book to record the wonderful things in detail, fo r they are fa r too numerous to mention. Suffice to say that, every known disease and physical in firm ity yield ed to the m ig h ty touch of the D ivin e power o f the W ord and the N a m e o f Jesus. M any w ere healed instantly, others b efore they left the meeting, and others as they reached their homes. I have never seen so m any cases o f cancer in any m eeting be fore as I saw in the Durban Cam paign, and m ost o f them were heal ed! N ig h t a fte r night there w ere as many as 30 to 40 new cancer v ic tims w h o w ere prayed fo r in the mass prayer, and the shout o f vic tory' cam e fro m many immediately. Likewise, am ong the throng which came fo rw a rd nightly lo r healing, there w ere T B victims by the dozen; also the deaf, many of whom w ere born deaf and dumb. Oh, it was w on derful! T h e pow er of God was pres ent to heal in every service fro m T H E V O IC E O F H E A L IN G • the very first to the last. A t the close of some services, a fte r the benediction. God began to w ork overtim e healing the hardest cases including deaf mutes w h o had w it nessed the healing o f others. “ I could tell you pathetic stories o f some poor A frica n o r Hindu, helpless but full of faith, just ask ing fo r a touch o f B roth er Bosw orth ’s hand, and they w ere not disappointed. One old Zulu, g ra y beard, totally blind, w as led by a young boy to me asking m e to guide him to the Um feedisi— teacher— fo r a touch of his hand. I led him f o r w ard and as soon as he fe lt the touch, he saw m y hand, and then asked if he could sing, which he did as only a Zulu can sing. Yes only Zulus ’ sing; others m ake noises! Brother Bosworth w ill n ever fo r g e t the singing Zulus! And I think that v e ry song w ill bring him back to Africa. "T h e greatest victories ov e r sin and sickness took place am on g the non-Europeans; especially the Zulus. G reat blessing was shed on the Eu ropeans too. w ith signs follo w in g . The campaign started in the g re a t Sports Stadium at H oy P a r k in Dur ban near the Ocean Beach. Then a fe w weeks later the m eetin g w as m oved to a native villa g e in the sub urbs of Durban; and so g re a t was the result in salvation and healing that a second visit was m ade with equal results. The next m ove was to the Hindu locality ad join ing Dur ban. This. too. gave witness to great things: most astounding m iracles took place; the blind saw, the deaf heard, cancers melted away, T B w as healed, the lame walked, and all praised God. “ Then tw o other Zulu centers w ere visited with wonderful re sults. And calls came from the south coast o f N a ta l over 100 miles aw ay — P o r t Shepstone. M argate and be yond. T hree campaigns w ere held there where Divine H ealing had n ever been preached before. And now believers are form ing gather ings fo r mutual help and fo r p rog ress. I had the pleasure of initiat in g the first meeting in P ort Shep stone through m y friends, the Scan dinavians. Bless the Lord O, m y soul! "T h is m inistry by Brother Bos w orth is too big for a limited testi m ony in a letter. The follow in g w ill help you to appreciate the gre a t ness of it when I tell you of some o f the responses to the invitations to com e to Christ fo r salvation and healing. So great were the crowds that moved forward in a single service, that they would fill an or dinary church. N o such sights have I seen before anywhere! "And, when the Zulus le ft the grand stand and came forward, they came singing their heart-melting songs: ’Our Hom e Over There,’ Ikaaya laapa vaa! Kumbuuio Ikaaya Laapa vaa! and ‘Come to Jesus Just N ow ,’ N aan go Jesu-Naango Jesu Manche! Thousands were saved and healed in these campaigns! Glory to God! M ay the Lord bless your heart with great joy in reading these facts.” Humbly yours, W illiam Laggar.
