With the start of revival services at the First Baptist church, a story
of long ago has been called to the attention of the editor by Mrs. Fannie
Yoak of Pleasant Hill, concerning a revival held some fifty years ago in
Interest was high in the series of meetings being conducted by the Rev.
William Burns in a winter shortly after the turn of the century.
One evening all was quiet when someone in the congregation exclaimed, "Look
at the window!" There was discovered a remarkable picture in the
frost of a man holding out his arms. Below could be seen the people
assembled to hear the teacher. The entire congregation was a witness
to this remarkable scene, although it disappeared soon because of the heat
of the breath of those standing near to look upon it.
Mrs. Yoak was told of the incident first hand by her mother, Mrs. Betty
Morris, who was among those present at the meeting.
Perhaps there are some still living who were present at the time of
this unusual happening.
