Before the era of television, sometimes I was allowed to listen to the radio, but not for very long because the acid-filled battery didn’t last long in the days before electricity came to our district. One evening, I found a station on 208 Meters Medium Wave, from Radio Luxemburg. I heard a preacher who really fascinated me. It was a program relayed from the United States. The minister had a huge tent and traveled the country preaching the gospel and deliverance. The gospel I knew, but deliverance, what was that about? My parents allowed me to stay up until after nine p.m. to finish the program. As they went for solitude to another room, they left me with my ear glued to the radio program.
I settled back in my huge lounge chair in which, as a small boy, I felt lost. This preacher’s message was different. His name was Oral Roberts. After preaching the gospel, he sat on the platform and prayed for sick people as they fi led past. The sick people gave testimonies when some, and often many, were healed. As the weeks passed and I became attached to him and more comfortable with his message of deliverance, something began to happen to my spirit.
