Converted by Pope -Anniversary Today

Filey Beach 1937
Yesterday at St Oswalds not only did David preach a great sermon but we got a testimony from  someone who 74 years ago TODAY became a Christian  at a Beach Mission on Filey Beach, after hearing the preaching of Hudson Pope . He went from a RHN to a RH.

You may read all Ray Smith's testimony here- A well spent 5minutes and you will find out what RHN and RH mean!

Rays story has really interested me . Marilyn ran a story about CSSM in the Envoy April 2010(find at RHS of this Blog ) .
My aged parent, now 91, became a Christian in 1928 at a beach Mission in Criccieth ,North Wales. This morning I sent a copy of Rays story to Faith to everyone in my Church Family E -Address book, so that they can pass it on to friends  who might need the encouragement to RH. I have already had a reply from Janet Wigglesworth saying Mark is in Criccieth at a Youth Camp, and then from Mark himself by iphone from his tent  in Criccieth . So lets pray for him too as he helps to lead young people towards a real Faith  in Jesus. I know he is praying for Filey too, as are  other  people who found faith in  this Seaside Town of Filey.

  1. That was great to read. We were brought up with CSSM and then I took my children to CSSM at Criccieth . It then became a SU beach mission. It is taking place at Criccieth ,even as I write and on the clifftops will be the Pathfinder camp . How great it will be if someone looks back at this date from one of the many camps going on around Britain and it became their RH day. I knew that if my children had no other Christian input throughout the year, they had those 2 weeks. Both later went on to be team members and it was a very special time in their lives.
