This book was really good. I can't remember who recommended to me that I try some of her books. I'll have to get to the public library now and check out more of them. I found the one I was reading at a yard sale for 25 cents and couldn't pass it up. I'll donate it to the church library now that I'm finished with it. They don't have any of her books yet.

"In Jesus' Name" by David Reed. Interesting book. Very well researched and well written and at least so far not a polemic.

This morning I finished "Shoutin' on the Hills."
It is a biography of Sis. Carrie Eastridge (1893-1981) written by her daughter Nona Freeman.

Sis. Carrie Eastridge left her husband of 24 years after he put her through a life of embarrassment and heartbreak by his infidelity. As a single Mom she was a successful Apostle, church planter, pastor, home missionary (among the American Indians) and foreign missionary (in Aftrica). There were numerous miracles and healings in her ministry but she was often in bad health and physically infirm. Her last public sermon was preached just 10 days before her death.

I have got to comment on 'Shoutin' on the Hills.' My mom finished reading this book shortly after Christmas 2007. She came into truth in Indianapolis in 1944 at Calvary Tabernacle. The pastor was Ray Huxtra. Mom continued at Calvary and sat under Pastor Urshan 12 years until my father's work moved her to PA where she found a church and remained faithful and involved. Mom's parents and siblings were all saved eventually as well as my dad and my brothers and sisters. Though some have turned back, others have not and there are grandchildren involved in ministry as a result of mom's admirable sacrifices and passionate walk with God. She was a soulwinner and encourager to the pastor and saints alike. In Jan. 2008 we took her to the ER due to a fall. She took my hand and said, "You know I just finished that book 'Shoutin on the Hills?'" I replied that I knew she'd been reading it. She said with happy tears, "pretty soon I'm going to be shoutin' on the hills."
I resisted that suggestion, but less than a half hour later she suffered a massive stroke and 6 weeks and another massive stroke later she passed from this life. We played an old Nathan and Jean Urshan recording of 'Shouting on the Hills of Glory" at her funeral. On mom's tombstone there is a beautiful picture of a silver haired mother in Zion and the words are engraved 'Shoutin on the Hills.'

I recently read “Beloved Wide Spot” by Nona Freeman, copyright 1989. The book tells the story of their pastoring in Rosepine, LA where they served for almost 7 years until they left in March 1948 as missionaries to South Africa. When they came to Rosepine, Bug was 23 and Nona was 24. Bug’s real name was Elpho Letris Freeman but he earned the name of Bug because of the strange way he crawled as a baby. Bug and Nona were married in 1937 and started preaching a couple of years later. They evangelized and pastored in the U.S. including the 7 years in Rosepine. Then they served in Africa for 41 years. Bug died in 1999 and Nona is still traveling around preaching even though she is 92 years old.

I'm reading 'A Palm and a Willow' by Rex Johnson. Sound, inspired and Biblical. Good reading for those who have lost someone close, or have gone through a time when they didn't understand God's purpose.
