I HAVE been asked to write a brief Foreword to my husband's book, BY MY SPIRIT. It gives me real joy to do so, for the story of how the book came to be written is a wonderful -- almost unbelievably wonderful witness of our Saviour's own words, "My strength is made perfect in weakness." We were living in three rooms over the Street Chapel in Szepingkai, Manchuria. Late in the Fall our son Fred arrived unexpectedly from Canada. A few days later Dr. Goforth returned from Mukden where he had had a terrible time in the hands of a Japanese dentist. The weather turned suddenly extremely cold and Dr. Goforth caught cold in his jaw. As days passed he became seriously ill, his right arm for a time helpless. His only relief came when pacing the floor with hand to mouth. One day I entered our living room to find Fred rapidly typing while his father told a revival story as he paced the floor in great pain. I protested vigorously but neither paid any heed so intent were they on getting the story down. No attempt was made at literary style -- they both seemed only bent on getting the facts recorded. Later Fred retyped what he had written and corrected when reading to his father. Weeks passed thus till the main manuscript was completed. The first introductory chapter and the last Dr. Goforth wrote himself later. We were all much impressed with the keenness of Dr. Goforth's mind and the charm of his memory when in such suffering. It was always a cause of thanksgiving with him to have been enabled to do some thing worthwhile when forced from his beloved Evangelistic work. ROSALIND GOFORTH Toronto, Canada.
