Reading a little pamphlet was instrumental in Wilson's conversion. Later he wrote, "I have seen the crucified and risen Lord as truly as if he had made himself visible to my bodily sight. That is, for me, the conclusive evidence of His existence. He touched my heart, and old desires and hopes left it. In their place came the new thought that I might serve him and his poor and suffering brethren." ✞
