In reference to this county, 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 this county 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.
At Llanfynydd the Holy Spirit has been poured out, and blasphemers are now found humble petitioners at the throne of mercy.
From ‘The Welsh Revival’ by Thomas Phillips.
