House of J. V. Wagner in Halle where George Muller attended a home fellowship worship service one Saturday evening with his friend Beta where he heard the gospel first preached. "That evening was the turning point in my life," he said in his autobiography. And he told his friend Beta that "all we have seen on our journey to Switzerland, and all our former pleasures, are as nothing in comparison with this evening."
Portrait of Mr. Anthony Norris Groves, From an Old Engraving. He was the brother-in-law of George Muller. Muller said: "My brother-in-law, Mr. A. N. Groves, of whom mention has been made, as having been helpful to me by his example when I began my labours in England in 1829, in that he, without any visible support, and without being connected with any Missionary Society, went with his wife and children to Bagdad, as a Missionary."
Franke's Orphan Houses in Halle where George Muller lived for about two months. He said in his autobiography: "About the time I first began to preach I lived for about two months in free lodgings, provided for poor students of divinity in the Orphan House, built in dependence upon God, by that devoted and eminent servant of Christ, A. H. Franke, Professor of Divinity at Halle, who died in 1727. I mention this, as some years afterwards I was benefited myself through the faith of this dear man of God."
New Orphan House, No. 5. "On January 6th, 1870, the long-looked-for, and the long-prayed-for day, arrived, when the last house also, the New Orphan House No. 5, could be opened. The immense work connected with sending out Orphans from the other four houses, filling up again the vacancies thus made, and going on with all the other parts of the work, had made it impracticable to open this house sooner. Since the opening of No. 5 there have been received into it 153 Orphans. All the expenses in connection with No. 4 and No. 5 being built, fitted up, and furnished, were met to the full, and, after all had been paid, there was left a balance of several thousand pounds. See esteemed reader, how abundantly God answered our prayers, and how plain it is, that we were not mistaken, after we had patiently and prayerfully sought to ascertain His will. Be encouraged, therefore, yet further and further to confide in the living God." - G. Muller
Tombstones of Mr. and Mrs. Muller The writing on the tombstone is as follows: "In Loving Memory of George Muller, Founder of the Ashley Down Orphange. Born September 27, 1805 Fell asleep March 10, 1898 __________ He trusted in God with whom "nothing shall be impossible," and in His beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord who said "I go unto My Father, and whatsoever ye shall ask in My name that will I do that the Father, may be glorified in the Son." And in His inspired word which declares that "All things are possible to Him that believeth." And God fulfilled these declarations in the experience of His servant by enabling him to provide and care for about ten thousand orphans.
