Bradford Circuit - J Entwisle (1821)



In another letter to his son William written a few days after, he says, — "The work of God still goes on in this circuit. More and more are heard to inquire 'What must I do to be saved?' More and more are enabled to rejoice in God our Saviour. The dry bones are moving through the whole circuit; and in every place the savour of the knowledge of Christ is spread abroad. To Him be glory.

Mr. Entwisle's labours at this time were "more abundant," in consequence of the general revival of religion throughout the circuit, and the large accession of new converts which took place almost daily.

"Sun. 18. — Low Moor, morning and afternoon. Admitted thirty new members. Bradford, evening.Mon. 19. — Preached and met classes at Manningham; employed three hours. In this place also the Lord is carrying on his work. Tues. — Met elasses in Bradford, and admitted thirteen new members. what a concern is excited in the minds of the people for their salvation. Wed. — Low Moor. Large and attentive congregation. ,

Sorely the Lord is doing wonders in this place. Thurs. — White Abbey. Here too sinners are awakened and turned unto the Lord. Frid. — Horton. God is at work here." Thus was his time constantly filled up; and thus did the Lord every where gladden his heart with abundant success.
