The impact of the 1906 Asuza Street revival spread beyond American borders, influencing Christianity worldwide. Canada was no exception. In 1907, a Canadian Methodist preacher, A.H [period missing from the original] Argue, became intrigued by reports regarding the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Los Angeles. Yet, Argue would not need to travel from his home in Winnipeg to Los Angeles to experience the outpouring. Instead, Argue visited a congregation, in the much closer Chicago, which was under the leadership of Durham -- a man who had, himself, travelled to Asuza Street to experience the revival. As a result of Argue's trip, he was baptized in the Holy Spirit, and returned to spread the Pentecostal message throughout central Canada.
