Smith Wigglesworth and New Zealand’s Greatest Revival by H. V. Roberts (Purchase this book through our bookstore or Amazon.com, TODAY!)
After the great Campaign a party of us took our beloved brother to the Marlborough Sounds for a well earned rest. Walking along the sea shore one evening I asked him the secret of his success. “Ah!” He said in a broken voice and with tears slowly trickling down his face, “I am sorry you asked me that question, but I will answer it.”
“I am a brokenhearted man. My wife who meant everything to me, died eleven years ago. After the funeral I went back and lay on her grave. I wanted to die there. But God spoke to me and told me to rise up and come away. I told Him if He would give to me a double portion of the Spirit—my wife’s and my own—I would go and preach the Gospel. God was gracious to me and answered my request. But I sail the high-seas alone. I am a lonely man, and many a time all I can do is to weep and weep.” Here was a secret indeed.
