Guildford - Salvation Army (1882)

Another glorious week has just passed and perhaps the best week that our soldiers ever witnessed in Guildford. At last, we are again able to go out into the open air and by that means the workers is reviving and sinners getting saved nearly every meeting. We had a great time on Sunday, 22 professing to find Salvation. After the evening service, we had a “Hallelujah wind-up,“ when 100 testified to the saving power of the Saviour. One brother saying that, before the Salvation Army came, he felt like a Farthing rushlight, just possessing a slight glimmer of religion; but, praise God he now feels something similar to a furnace, all ablaze with glory. Hallelujah! The band is gaining ground, now numbering 20 members. The first Little Soldiers' Meeting was held on Saturday afternoon, over 60 being present and 36 came out and gave the heart of Jesus. Hallelujah!

From, 'The War Cry', August 1882.

This is just one example of what was happening here. More reports can be seen from the War Cry in future months/years.
