A Life Transformed by 'Clean Supernatural Power'

'...Others saw a neighbour who had been a well-known spirit-medium in Aberavon, abandon the only livelihood which she knew, for the gospel. Every Sunday evening she had been paid three guineas -quite a large sum in those days- for leading a spiritist meeting. Then one Sunday when she was ill, and unable to go out, her attention was attracted to the numbers who were passing her house on the way to Sandfields.

The very sight of these people, and their evident anticipation, awakened a desire in her to attend a service herself. This she did, to be herself transformed and thereafter to live a consistent Christian life until her death. Included in the testimony which she subsequently gave to the messenger who had led her to Christ were these remarkable words:

“The moment I entered your chapel and sat down on a seat amongst the people, I was conscious of a supernatural power. I was conscious of the same sort of supernatural power as I was accustomed to in our spiritist meetings, but there was one big difference; I had a feeling that the power in your chapel was a clean power."'
