A Sturdy Scottish Pioneer

DONALD ROSS, pioneer evangelist, was born in the
         Scottish Highlands.   At the age of fifteen he was
brought to a knowledge of the soul-saving truth of the
Gospel.   Here is the story of what he described as "a
plain statement of an old-fashioned conversion,"
written
by himself:
   "I was saved in Inchdown, Roskeen, Ross-shire, about
four or five weeks over my fifteenth year.   I was awakened
through the illness of a Mr. Duncan, and received Christ as
my own personal Saviour in the Young Plantation, Knock-
navez, through that verse, John 18. 8, "if therefore ye seek [M]e, let
these go their way
[,]" about 5:30 p.m. on a Thursday in
March; saw, and understood, and believed in Christ as my
own Substitute for the first time in my life, and at once,
that very afternoon, began to preach Christ to others as
the only Saviour.   From the moment I was saved my
thoughts always were: ‘Cannot I do something here and
now for the honour of Him who redeemed me, and for the
poor, perishing world around me.’
"

   Mr. Ross was "instant in season, out of season[,]" in
warning the unsaved of coming wrath and judgment, and
pointing them to Christ, the sinner's refuge.   In 1876 he
went to America, where, with the exception of two or
three visits to his native land, he continued to labour
till called home on 13th February, 1903.
   Near the end he said, "I will be 80 in February, and if I
had other 80 before me I'd spend them in Gospel work."
