Fergus Macalray - Notes on Early Days - December 17, 2006

According to Candace McChesney (Coquitlam, BC, Canada), Fergus Macalray [McIlraith?] told her years ago that when he started in the work, the older brother workers would take the candidate out behind the barn and he would have to start a hymn to show he could sing. He said when he started he was not with an older companion but with another young brother close to his age. They had street meetings in which they both prayed and both spoke and were back in their batch [back home?] within 15 minutes!
