Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
General Booth once wanted fourteen recruits for India. He had his whole company about him, and he said: "This is very dangerous work, and it requires great self-sacrifice. I might detail you for the work, but I will not detail any one of you. I will tell you what I will do: if any of you want to volunteer for it, you will have the privilege to do so after one hour. Go away now and pray about it." They went away and prayed about it, and at the end of the hour General Booth said, "Are any of you willing to undertake this work?" And fourteen stalwart men stepped forward and said, We are ready to sad tomorrow morning.
