Jim Martin (1925-2017) was saved in Banbridge on 1st April 1941 in the 5th week of gospel meetings being held by evangelist David Craig. In this recording, given in Ballymena in 2002, shortly after the homecall of his dear wife Elizabeth, Mr Martin tells both his testimony and how the Lord called him to preach the gospel. In 1951 he went out full time and in this message he recalls many interesting and encouraging stories from 51 years of service. Mr Martin visited us in Bicester many years ago. He was a gifted earnest preacher of the gospel who the Lord used in the salvation of hundreds of souls. At the beginning of this message, Mr Martin read Acts 26:22-23 and 1 Chron 29:5.
