Another Peter Hynd. Don't know if he is related to the above. Peter Hynd of Dreghorn, who has for the past few years, been well known in many parts of Scotland, as an acceptable preacher of the Word, spending week-ends and taking meetings while following his employment in connection with a local coal mine, in the district. He had been evangelising in Camelon, near Falkirk, for some five weeks, and had returned to his home that week-end, and gone out to his work on Thursday morning. While thus employed, a piece of coal fell down the shaft, severely bruising his hand and leg. He was taken to Kilmarnock Infirmary, and the bruised hand operated on. Septic poisoning set up, and increased, causing internal hemorrhage, from which he passed to be with Christ on Thursday night, 15th November 1924, at the age of 35, leaving his young wife, a babe of four months, and a widowed mother, to mourn his loss. It is a "mysterious" act of the Lord's hand, as man sees it, to call one away, so promising in His service, and whose ministry was so well received. But the Lord's path is "in the deep waters," and "His footsteps are not known" (Psa. Ixxxii. 10). Yet "God is His own interpreter," and He will yet justify all His dealings with His people, however mysterious they now may be to us. The opportunity is now with us, and with all who benefited by our brother's ministry, to show their love and practical sympathy with those he has left. And it is desired by those who know the circumstances, that Christian love will not be behind in doing this, in a way "worthy of God," and of His Name. A fuller memoir of Mr. Hynd, with photo., appears in The Christian Worker for December, 1924. "The Believer's Magazine 1924
