There was an incident that occurred in connection with an encampment of Shantung soldiers located at Shanghai. One day a dog came into their camp with some pages from a book in his mouth. The soldiers caught the dog and began to read the papers. They were pages from a Bible being printed in their language. They became very interested and followed the dog to a Christian hospital, asking for more of this kind of literature. The Christian hospital was glad to help. This brought forth an opportunity for Dr. Goforth and a Chinese evangelist to visit the camp. Two hundred men were enrolled as inquirers. If God can use a dog to deliver his Word, then he can use any of us, including me. [Walter B. Knight, Knight’s Master Book of New Illustrations (Eerdman: Grand Rapids, 1956), 622.]
