Without sufficient backing and as a result of of the tremendous health obstacles they would face—cholera, dysentery, and malaria—three months later, their glorious adventure and burning desire to answer God’s call ended with Robert’s tragic death from dysentery. Aimee returned to the United States penniless—a grieving window with a one-month-old sick baby.

She had a hysterectomy, and on what she expected to be her deathbed, after her second operation within two years, she answered “yes” to God’s call. 33 Consumed with the need to follow God’s instructions and the belief that God was leading her, she wired her mother for money. Late one night, alone in her house, she packed up her two children and took the midnight train to Canada. For the second time in her life, she was setting forth to obey God and preach his word. Unlike when she had accompanied Robert Semple to China, though, this time, she was going it alone.

An assembly 33 34 AIMEE SEMPLE MCPHERSON of ministers and deacons even sat behind her on the pulpit to observe her work. ’ ” 44 Undaunted by their presence, she proceeded to state that the Christian church had lost the gifts of the Holy Spirit—the powers of prophecy, speaking in tongues, and divine healing; it was her inspired belief that God would restore these gifts before the second coming of Jesus.
