David Kane – Things that Need to be Appreciated (24 min)

David Kane (1922-2015) visited us in Hebron Gospel Hall, Bicester, a number of times and helped us in the ministry of the Word. Saved in Belfast on 5th October 1940, aged 18, on the roof of the foundry where he worked, David immediately began attending a local church. Through reading his Bible, he developed a desire to gather according to the scriptural pattern he saw revealed there. One wet Sunday morning heading home from giving out some tracts he stepped off the pavement into an entrance to avoid the heavy rain. Looking up he saw a notice board that read “Breaking of Bread – 11.30am”. He climbed the stairs and entered a room where 200 were gathered to remember the Lord. Shown to a visitor’s seat, he observed a “remembrance meeting” for the first time in his life. At last he had found “the place”! He could not wait to tell his girlfriend, who had been saved two days after him. Soon they were both in fellowship with the believers meeting in Matchett Street Gospel Hall, Belfast. Commended to the Lord’s work full time in 1967, his first series of gospel meetings was in a tent in Belfast’s Sandy Row, with Mr Frank Knox. Nothing made him happier than seeing a Gospel Tent pitched for meetings. He wore out 5 tents in his lifetime! Mr Kane is also fondly remembered by many for the annual summer “Bushmills Bible Readings” that he started and which continue to this day. In this recording from a conference in Lurgan some years ago, he preaches on “things that need to be appreciated” from Titus Ch 3.
