spending a few months in northern Indiana with my
then only living brother, R_____. Since then he has gone to his reward,
leaving me the only one on probation out of a family of thirteen children. He
had a boy staying with him that had been brought up a Catholic. We were going
to Michigan City,
several miles away in a wagon, and neither of us had any wraps nor umbrella,
and it began to sprinkle and soon was raining. I said to Harry, "I don't
want to get wet, as this wind off the lake here would be most too chilly for
my health if I get wet. Now, see if it continues to rain, as I will offer up
a prayer." And in less than five minutes it stopped. "Well,"
he said, "that is wonderful, I never saw anything like that. My folks
all go to church, but I never saw anything like that done there nor anywhere
else." So God gave me an opportunity to enable Him to display His power
there in the presence of that ignorant boy.
