       Gipsy Smith
       1860-1947
      
       Rodney "Gipsy" Smith (sometimes Gypsy Smith) was a British evangelist. Gipsy Smith was born in England. His mother died when he was a small boy. His father led him to Christ at the age of 15. Two years later, Smith joined General William Booth's mission, and began preaching to crowds that numbered from 100 to 1,500. He conducted evangelistic campaigns in the United States and Scotland for over 70 years.
      
       He came to America 30 times and preached around the world twice. In the Paris Opera House he had 150 conversions out of the cream of Parisian society. He was a contemporary of Fanny Crosby and G. Campbell Morgan.

I'm God's messenger from the gypsy tent. And it's the message that's important, not the messenger.
