A number of months ago I asked Donnie Fugit to recapture for me, with the best of his ability,
the original “Ambassador of The Way Caravan.” The one that preceded the first WOW’s in the
fall of 1971 at the time of the Rock of Ages. Wasn’t it ‘71? That summer I felt in my heart I
would like to send out a group of people just to do a test run. Simply send them from one area
to another and start them out at some difficult places. I started them out at what I thought was
the most difficult place I could think of at the time and that was Springfield, Missouri, because
that was solidly Assemblies of God, the headquarters up there, Pentecostal. I just thought it
would be sort of nice to see if we could infiltrate that and what would happen when our people
hit the town. At that time I asked Donnie Fugit if he would head up the group. I wrote letters to
all of our Advanced Class grads, because everybody had to be an Advanced Class grad, I think,
to make it. And then Donnie wrote this up and I would very much like to share it tonight
because I think it needs to go on the tape and on the film for our people for the future.

Victor Paul Wierwille was a Bible scholar and teacher for over four decades.
By means of Dr. Wierwille's dynamic teaching of the accuracy and integrity of God's Word, foundational class and advanced class graduates of Power for Abundant Living have learned that the one great requirement for every student of the Bible is to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Thus, his presentation of the Word of God was designed for students who desire the in-depth-accuracy of God’s Word.
In his many years of research, Dr. Wierwille studied with such men as Karl Barth, E. Stanley Jones, Glenn Clark, Bishop K.C. Pillai, and George M. Lamsa. His formal training included Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology degrees from Mission House (Lakeland) College and Seminary. He studied at the University of Chicago and at Princeton Theological Seminary from which he received a Master of Theology degree in Practical Theology. Later he completed his work for the Doctor of Theology degree.
Dr. Wierwille taught the first class on Power for Abundant Living in 1953.
Books by Dr. Wierwille include: Are the Dead Alive Now? published in 1971; Receiving the Holy Spirit Today published in 1972; five volumes of Studies in Abundant Living— The Bible Tells Me So (1971), The New, Dynamic Church (1971), The Word's Way (1971), God's Magnified Word (1977), Order My Steps in Thy Word (1985); Jesus Christ Is Not God (1975); Jesus Christ Our Passover (1980); and Jesus Christ Our Promised Seed (1982).
Dr. Wierwille researched God's Word, taught, wrote, and traveled worldwide, holding forth the accuracy of God's "wonderful, matchless" Word.
