Liverpool - Salvation Army (1882)

At this point of time there were 5 Salvation Army statins here. I am sure that before now the War Cry will have reported on revivals in most of them, but I have not seen them.

Liverpool V

On Sunday 33 came to Jesus. One man, in giving his testimony, said he had been one of the worst drunkards in Liverpool. One day, while he was fighting with a man in the street, his sister came through the crowd and said, “Jim, your mother is dead!” He left and went home to find the sad news too true. Over his mother's grave his sister took hold of his hand and said, “Jim, promise me you will never touch the drink again.” He gave the promise, but broke it and went further into sin, till he got so bad that his father fetched a policeman and turned him out of doors. Now thank God he is saved.

From, 'The War Cry', May 1882.

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

Liverpool II

We have had some glorious times at the station this last week. God has been with us every night, He has pardoned old backsliders and washed poor guilty sinners in His own blood and then, oh, what shouts of liberty! 24 prisoners taken this week.

From, 'The War Cry', July 1882.
