too concerned about your speaking in tongues, but let the Holy Ghost give
you utterance, and it will come just as freely as the air we breathe. It is noth-

name!

He then said: “Glory! Beloved, I want to say ‘Goodnight’ to you all for a
short while. It has now been over a year ago since I left Texas and came up in
this portion of the country to labor and work for the Lord, and I am going
back there through that old state where the Lord called me from a year ago.
I am going to pass through there and see those precious children that prayed
with me for Pentecost, and while I am gone I want you all to pray that God
may use me to His own honor and glory.
“I want to read some of God’s own precious Word in the first chapter of
