NOTE FROM ANDREW:  Romania is a long way from New
Zealand - and it took me 5 flights to get home! Lovely to be back
with the family. Thanks so much for all your prayers, my friends.
A wonderful trip. - Bless you! - Andrew Strom.


"Their eyes are dry, their sense of sin absent; nor is there any sign 
of penitence and contrition... But oh, if there were conviction! if they 
came with hearts bowed down, yea! broken and contrite, came with 
the cry of the guilt-laden soul... what converts they would be!"
-Oswald J. Smith

"In prayer I was exceedingly enlarged and my soul was as much 
drawn out as I ever remember it to have been in my life. I was in 
such anguish, and pleaded with so much earnestness and 
importunity, that when I rose from my knees I felt extremely weak 
and overcome I could scarcely walk straight."
-David Brainerd

"Prayer was his one great solace, and his tears would often stain 
the altar steps, where he sought aid from heaven against the vile 
and corrupt age".
-From 'Girolamo Savonarola' by David Smithers.

"I had not discoursed long when the congregation melted into 
tears... a little boy about seven or eight years of age cried out 
exceeding piteously indeed and wept as though his little heart 
would break. I asked the little boy what he cried for. He answered 
'my sins!' I then asked him what he wanted. He answered, 'Christ!' 
...Many of the assembled were deeply affected, groaning and 
sobbing; there was a great weeping and mourning."
--William Bramwell

"When the conviction as to its mental process reaches its crisis, 
the person, through weakness, is unable to sit or stand, and either 
kneels or lies down. A great number of convicted persons in this 
town and neighborhood, and now I believe in all directions in the 
north where the Revival prevails, are "smitten down"... They fall 
with a deep groan... with the intensely earnest plea, 'Lord Jesus, 
have mercy on my soul!'"
-The Irish Revival, 1859.

"The power of God was present. They came to be saved, and 
were not disappointed. The sobs and cries were wonderful. It 
seemed as if God had come down in terror and power; as if the 
Spirit were passing through every region of every soul... until 
the whole soul, collecting all its energies into one out-cry for 
mercy, exclaimed, 'God, be merciful to me a sinner, what must 
I do to be saved? Save, Lord, or I perish! O, save or I sink into 
hell. Heal my soul for I have sinned against Thee!"
-James Caughey
