Bob Surgenor outside his Gospel Tent

Bob Surgenor (1928-) tells the story of his labours in the gospel in West Virginia, USA, beginning in 1970 to the present day. He pioneered the work there and, often helped by other preachers, saw the Lord save souls and an assembly planted in the town of New Creek. Using a Gospel Tent and hiring various buildings (including the historic Pine Church  in Purgitsville), series of gospel meetings were held in Keyser, Burlington, Fairmont, Petersburg, Birch River, Whitmer, Buckhannon and many other places. The fascinating and often humourous story of this work is told in the book Happenings Up The Hollow (ISBN 9781926765808). Reading: Psalm 126:5 (Report given at Lurgan Conference, Northern Ireland).
