David Duplesis I beleive brought in this charismatic movement, he may have not been responsable for naming it charisma ,but his intoduction to the gifts of the spirit to the denominations as the chaimatic, the following definitions of charisma or charismatics were researched through diferent web sites which are not my own opinions but reviewing David Harrells book " All things are possible " Mr. harrell used the term charismatic to define the pentecostal movement up untill the time he publishes his book , he also places the death of smith wigglesworth in 1944 , which all accounts that i have read puts wigglesworth death death in March of 1947 , so i thougth to myself how serious a writter is this man and he does not seem to have a pentecostal backround and loosely gathered his facts and were they accurate. this following definition is taken from Wild World of Religion: Under the Big Top The history of the religious movements designated popularly by the terms Pentecostal and Charismatic is chronicled elsewhere on this site. For details, consult that description. Briefly, the earliest groups in the modern resurgence of interest in the supernatural manifestations of Acts 2, which began forming around the turn of the last century (1900), referred to themselves as Pentecostal. Their particular emphasis was on restoration of the gift of tongues as an outward sign of what they referred to as the "baptism of the Holy Ghost." Up until the 1950s, this movement was on the fringes of religion in modern society. The few denominations which espoused this doctrine were not part of the mainstream of religious groups.
unquote mr harrell at the time of his writing of this book is ignorant that the word charismatic did not come into use untill the late 60s kevin considine konsidine@gmail.com

Dear Brother,
Warm greetings in the most wonderful name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
SHALL I TRASLATE THIS BOOK IN TELUGU LANGUAGE.
God be praised for the wonderful ministry and for the profound efforts taken for the extension of His Kingdom in this world.
As President and Evangelist of the “CHURCH OF HOPE MINISTRIES” (CHM) Full Gospel Interdenominational Association, I wish to invite you and your team members to visit Guntur,Andhra Pradesh,India. to take part in our Seminar and Crusade, proposed for the April-6,7,8 of 2011.
Please accept this invitation to the full admiration of our hearts and attend the above conference. I am confident that this time of fellowship and sharing of God’s word in preaching and teaching would be a great blessing and a matter of great encouragement to pastors, believers and to those who are involved in God’s work in India.
There will be a gathering of many thousands of people consisting of Christians, non-Christians and other believers during nights and each seminar in the day time consists of Church leaders, Pastors, Evangelists, Elders and Christian believers. Through this seminar, hundreds of Indian Pastors and Church leaders would receive training for missionary work and thus get spiritually activated.
We expect each Seminar and Crusade to produce and reproduce spiritual growth of local churches coupled with financial prosperity and growth of faith and to obtain more power and boldness through the Holy Spirit with divine healing to the body and soul.
We shall await your prayerful consideration and kind co-operation to enable us to plan in advance to make this Seminar and Crusade a very grand success.
Your immediate encouraging response will be highly appreciated.
Sincerely in Christ
Bro. JOHN SOBHAN KORRAPATI
