Sam Wellman, Amy Carmichael: Selfless Servant of India

“Next morning at 10 o’clock William had a unique opportunity. For it was he who would deliver the sermon for the meeting. And to the discomfort of many there he preached on Isaiah 54. “‘Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes’!” he exhorted his fellow ministers.

Perhaps they allowed their own minds, their own fears, their own doubts, to trick them.” Andrew Fuller seemed shaken. “I move to reopen for business.” “I second the motion,” said William. “All in favor, raise their hand,” said Fuller as he glared at the other ministers. A majority raised their hands!”
Sam Wellman, William Carey
