Excerpt from Twenty Years on Horseback, or Itinerating in West Virginia
It would be difficult to find more striking examples of Christian altruism and heroism any where in this country than the godly men who preached the gospel among the mountains and in the valleys of the Virginias in the early years of our denominational history. These men embodied those elements of character and graces of the Spirit which are essential to success in Christian work anywhere. Having heard the call of God, and hav ing felt the spell Of the divine spirit, they yielded themselves unreservedly to the gospel ministry. They possessed strength of conviction, singleness of aim, earnestness of purpose, and concentration Of effort. As a rule these pioneer preachers had but one business - that of the King. They were so absorbed in the saving of men and women, and in extending the kingdom, that they gave but little attention to present physical comforts and future needs. Many of them were without property, and when they sang, No foot Of land do I possess, NO cottage in this Wilderness.
