Brengle in Oslo - Part 3
Christiania (Oslo), 11 February 1907"The big hall was packed last night and we could hardly close the meeting. I got to bed after 12 o´clock. I am at No. 3 corps which seems to be in a very healthy spiritual condition. There are a number of soldiers belonging to the corps, who were blessed in my meetings at No. 1 corps last year and they work and sing and fish like real soldiers. How I bless God for them..."
Brengle also writes about people trying to get him speak in tongues to make his ministry even more fruitful:
"...Well they came again yestersday and brought brother Rhun, and by and by they all agreed that I ought to talk with tongues and carry this around the world. It was just about time for my afternoon meeting, and I had no time to alk, so I told them if they thought so they must pray to the Lord to give me the gift, as I was perfectly willing so far as I knew to receive the gift, and wanted all that God wanted me to have, so we prayed and then they all came to my meeting. I talked about the Holy Spirit and his work and tried to show plainly the distinction between the gift of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit."
Brengle´time in Norway seems to be extraordinary blessed. Brengle writes on February 25 1907:
"The Lord has helped me to preach I think as I never preached before. My liberty has been just about perfect and he has helped me believe as I preached."
