From the life of John Needham: I heard the first gospel sermon in Preston [England] from Apostle Orson Hyde, in the year 1837, and I believed it with all my soul. My father came and took me to my home in Warrington and was very bitter against the Church. In a few weeks, he obtained a situation for me in Manchester, but in a short time I was with the Saints again and preaching the gospel, though only a boy in my teens. Again my father took me home, and in a few weeks placed me in a situation in Staffordshire, but wherever I went, the gospel seemed to come also. This time Apostle George A. Smith came to Staffordshire, and I labored under his direction and traveled a great deal with him. At last my father left me severely alone and forbid me visiting my mother, brothers and sister. I labored a few months in Dudley, near Birmingham, and in a small place called Great Green. I was very poor and destitute, not having enough money to buy ink and paper; the few Saints in the Church were also very poor. One morning, while I answered a knock at the door where I was staying, a young woman asked if a minister of the gospel was staying there, named the Reverend John Needham. I told her that Elder John Needham was my name. She then gave me some silver money, and told me that her lady had a dream, in which she was told to give me some cash, and that I was a servant of God and needed help. This is but one case out of a hundred similar blessings which I received from our Heavenly Father during a five years’ mission, and while I traveled practically without money.
