The following quotes were missing a word when I read them :

“I have found my position trying and arduous in the extreme since my dear husband was compelled to leave us; but the Lord has wonderfully strengthened me. … it would be too much to say that the work has not suffered; but … all our workers have been kept in unity and love and the usual services have been sustained without diminution. It is our one absorbing desire the work should grow, whatever instrument should be laid aside. We want more of the Holy Ghost. Our difficulties in this East London you cannot possibly estimate unless you were in the fight.”

“We are an army. We grew into one, and then we found it out, and called ourselves one. Every soldier of this Army is pledged to carry the standard of the Cross into every part of the world, as far as he has opportunity. Our motto is ‘The World for Jesus.’”
