AN INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE RECORDED IN
THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE
BY REV. POWELL BY MEANS OF A
TINY BATTERY POWERED TAPE
This record made expressly for Brother Powell's Television Friends
The good looking Pentecostal evangelist has recorded a lot of albums, wrote some books, travelled extensively in the U.S. and in the Canada between 1968 and 1975 before coming back to Daytona Beach.
He got his start, so speaking,, in the evangelism business after a miraculous recovery who has taking place, I'm guessing, between the publication of two of his pamphlets, "Footprints of Jesus" (1956) and "Faith In The Fire" (1961).
The circumstance of the miracle was advertised in Daytona newspapers when Don Powell was here, in 1962, for a three-weeks crusade (upper-case letters are in the original ad and preserved here) :
ONLY ETERNITY WILL TELL HOW MANY SOULS HAVE BEEN SAVED AND HEARTS HAVE BEEN BLESSED!
DON POWELL AND HIS FAMILY AFTER BEING NEAR DEATH FROM THE EXPLOSION OF A BURNING BOAT IN THE BAHAMA ISLANDS ... THE SWIFT HAND OF GOD TAKING ONE DAUGHTER IN THIS TRAGEDY ... YET MIRACULOUSLY HEALING DON POWELL OF THIRD DEGREE BURNS OVER MOST OF HIS BODY .....
THE SWIFT HAND OF GOD PUTTING FLESH WHERE MUSCLES AND SINEW HAD BEEN EATEN UP BY FLAMES ... OVERNIGHT DESTROYING VICIOUS GANGRENE CRAWLING THROUGH DON POWELL'S BODY
THE SWIFT AND POWERFUL HAND OF GOD BRINGING COMPLETE RECOVERY ALMOST IN A MINUTE! ....SPECIALISTS SAID IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THIS MAN TO LIVE... YET HE WAS IN THE PULPITS OF NEW YORK CHURCHES ONLY 19 DAYS LATER PREACHING THE WORD OF GOD AND BRINGING THE MESSAGE OF SALVATION AND HEALING THE LOST SOULS...
