Llandovery (1859)



The Rev. R. Phillips, of Llandovery, writes as follows:

"It is supposed that about three thousand persons have been added to the Calvinistic Methodist Churches in Carmarthenshire during the past year. Some of the greatest drunk­ards in some neighbourhoods give evidence of a change of heart by a change of life. The old people say that there is more of God in this revival than they ever saw in any similar movement. It is quite clear that a work has been done which none but God could accomplish. In some places the cause of religion had nearly died away, but now those places are quickened. The churches, which were small, have received a large accession of members, and new life runs through the whole.

"The town of Llandovery has not been awakened to the same degree as some other places; but still all the deno­minations have increased the number of their communicants during the year. We have had a few drops, and all the churches are longing for the heavy shower of Divine in­fluences.

From ‘The Welsh Revival’ by Thomas Phillips.
