He did so almost immediately and he him self asked the Lord to save him, coming out clearly for the Lord. He said one of the young men where he works invited him to come to the class. This is one of the first fruits of a Bible class we winning is great enough anywhere, after one learns the art of being a channel of blessing that the Holy Spirit can use, but its power seems to grow upon one when working among these big-hearted laboring men.
