Example text

His mother owned a boardinghouse there. After they were married, the couple moved to Providence with his parents. Social convention of the day dictated that Aimee give priority to her position as a wife and mother rather than to any career ambitions she might have. In July, she became pregnant, and the following spring, on March 23, 1913, a boy named Rolf McPherson was born. Aimee tried to settle down to normal home life, but the call to Christian service remained constant—the voice persisted. Occasionally, Aimee evangelized but, to her, this was not sufficient to answer God’s call.

People flocked to see her. At one point, an army convoy filled with soldiers passed by and Sister Aimee blessed them all. There were few who did not understand the messages written on the sides of the Oldsmobile. People wanted to hear more. Some had questions they wanted answered, while others wanted to be blessed and receive salvation. People believed Sister Aimee had the answers. The disease was recorded as the most devastating epidemic in world history. More people died of influenza in a single year than had died in four years of the so-called Black Death—an epidemic of bubonic plague between 1347 and 1351.

Public health ordinances were issued and gauze masks were distributed to be worn in public. Churches closed for public safety, railroads did not accept passengers without signed medical certificates, and some places required people to present a signed certificate to enter. Medical facilities, doctors, and health-care workers were pressed into service—yet physicians were helpless against the sickness, since it was a virus that could not be fought with medication. The alarmingly high death rate actually caused a shortage of coffins, morticians, and gravediggers.
