Bro. Wigglesworth’s mission of healing.

Published in Confidence, October-December 1920.

I only returned home on Saturday after a most wonderful time, in French Switzerland this time. There have been great scenes of Pentecost and spiritual revival. Truly hundreds hare been saved and not less than 1,000 healed. Some of the most wonderful miracles were wrought. One had diabetes and was so delivered that his doctor gave him a certificate to say that he was fully healed, without a trace of sugar. One man brought on a stretcher blind and paralyzed now sees and walks. A consumption case was given up by the doctor; the same doctor declared her free and told her to testify to every one, and put down on paper “Healed fully.” I could go on, but must give you more detalis some orher time.

At Geneva now there is a good work, no Pentecost before. At Neuchâtel a good work; they have got the English Church, no Pentecost before. Lausanne now a strong center, only a few before. Vevey, on the Lake of Geneva, now a good work, and Aigle, not before; at Mayers also, and at Shil de Fos, a great place for watch making.

At all these places God worked wonders, and the largest halls were full of people. At my last meetings in Neuchâtel the great theater was full twice, and at a large morning meeting at Bern on August 6th I baptized in the open river 110 new converts. This will give you some idea of God’s workings. The cry is great.

The people in Sweden and Norway had me booked for September, but the cry of French Switzerland was too appealing, so I remained. I am due back in Zurich (German Switzerland) on October 30th, for one month. Then I am to have a Convention for all French Swiss in December with the leaders, so I would like your beloved wife and yourself to keep me in remembrance.

I brought back for our Missionaries over £300 again, and have £200 promised to the P.M.U. and £100 to the Congo.

God bless you.

I started this site ’cause I took a Pentecostal history class in grad school, used several Wigglesworth articles for a paper, and rather than just throw away my source materials, I stuck ’em on the internet. I’ve been adding to them since. Thanks for the encouraging feedback!

Yes, the Wigglesworth articles are edited for spelling, punctuation, paragraph breaks, and verse references. But that’s all. Most of the source materials are transcripts of what he spoke aloud, so I believe such alterations are justifiable. I’ve included scans of the original publications in case you wish to compare. Any further typos are because the OCR software made them and I didn’t catch them. Sorry.

If you come across another version of these articles with significant differences (including in print!) it’s because their editor decided to take further liberties with Wigglesworth than I would. There comes a point when such editing becomes less about Wigglesworth’s own words, and more about editors wishing to reshape Wigglesworth to suit them. Or the times. There are certain things Wigglesworth said and taught where I personally can’t agree, and honestly don’t believe the scriptures back him up. (You want my view, visit Christ Almighty.) But as an historian I’m posting what he said, disagreements or not. I wouldn’t appreciate it if people bent my words in like manner, and I’m not editing him for anyone’s theological sensibilities—neither mine nor yours.

You have my permission to link to this blog, and make fair-use quotations of it. But as for republication, the rights don’t belong to me. Thanks to Disney’s continued lobbying for copyright extensions, they won’t be out of copyright in the United States till 2042—if ever. So the copyrights belong to Wigglesworth, the respective publications, and their successors. All rights reserved.

Bible links go to good old Bible Gateway. Wigglesworth used the Authorized (King James) Version, and any discrepancies are because he impressively quoted from memory.

European readers: It’s only fair to warn you this site uses cookies. Sorry. I didn’t put them there. Blogger did. I still love using Blogger though.
