“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophesy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.” (1 Tim 4: 12-14)
Their son, Amos, loved music. He played the violin, sang in the church choir, loved to dance, and called for dances. He was blessed with the gift of healing and was called many times to administer to the sick.
“Even now when I think back I seem to hear his voice saying, ‘Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things not seen.’ I often wonder at his ability to pronounce words and names since his schooling was meager, but God seemed to have blessed him, making up to him to a very great extent what he lacked in education. Having heard him read so much, I feel that God helped me, too, for I remember the pronunciation of many of the words and they are correct even today. It truly was a gift from God.”
