Charles Parham employs Lucy F. Farrow as the governess of his children and moves to Melrose, Kansas. He leaves part of his evangelistic party in Houston, Texas. Mrs. Farrow turns the pulpit of her congregation over to William J. Seymour. He begins to serve as the church’s pastor. While Seymour is pastoring Lucy F. Farrow’s congregation, Miss Neely Terry, a member of Mrs. Hutchins’ congregation in Los Angeles, California, visits relatives in Houston. She attends the church and is favorably impressed by Seymour’s preaching.
