Find out about the invisible evangelist, the two girls who prayed and other astonishing stories. This is a book that will make you gasp at God's goodness!The evangelists in this book include one man named Dick McLellan. Born in Australia Dick had the privilege of working with SIM during the 1950s. This book contains some of his experiences as well as the stories of Africans who eagerly took hold of God's message with two hands. With joy in their souls they declared, "With this hand I renounce the devil and all his works! With this hand I surrender to Jesus Christ! All I am and all I have!"
