day, lu in the forenoon and 8:30 (
in the evening, Mr. Turnipseed has
preached very earnest irospel ser- (
mons which have been yery help
ful to those who have heard him.
Mr. Turnipseed has an attractive
manner of delivering his messages,
one which attracts and inspires peo- J
pie instead of driving them from
him. This very earnest laborer in
the Lord's vineyard impresses one
with his entire consecration to his
life work and from the rich expe
riences of his own heart he leads
and instructs others. Many persons
here have been greatly blessed by
his coming among us.
