Elder J.S. Newman
newman.jpg

Elder Joseph Sylvester Newman, of Glen Rose, Texas. This gifted brother is an example of what the grace of God in the life and heart of a wild, reckless sinner does. He was born September 23, 1851, and for fifteen years was a cow-boy on the plains of the West. At seventeen he was married to Miss Mirandy Siemon, convicted of sin and received a hope in Jesus about, 1880, and when he joined the church in Gonzales County, Texas, three years later, and was baptized by Elder J. W. Baker,. he could scarcely read and write. Up to the present time he has held about fifty public discussions with representatives of various denominations, and is a strong debater and gifted speaker. He has never studied anything in the preparation of his debates except the Bible, church histories and the meaning of words. Soon after uniting with the church he was made deacon, but the church soon discovered his gift and in 1886, he was ordained by Elders J. G. Curington and J. W. Baker. He has since spent the most of his time traveling and preaching and the Lord has blessed his labors. He has baptized about five hundred persons. His preaching is Jesus, all the way through. In regard to his own feelings and interest in the sure salvation of Jesus for all his people Elder Newman writes, "I want it printed that generations to come may read, that if I am saved it will be a poor undeserving sinner saved by grace occasionally."
