1839 Ebenezer, Llanddeiniolen, Caernarfonshire. Thomas Edwards called to Ebenezer, Llanddeiniolen, in 1832. Ordained at the start of July 1832 (on the 2nd). The number of members was then only 18. Some years passed before Mr Edwards saw any great success to his ministry.
‘A little before the revival broke out the private society turned to prayer and was heard as blessings distilled from above. ‘O let us praise the Lord!’ [text?] The first Sabbath, namely the third day of February last, when the minister was speaking on Acts 10:42, namely Peter’s sermon in the house of Cornelius, the doctrine was sound, and the presence of the Lord was evidently seen in the congregation, so that the sound of praise filled the sanctuary. A private meeting was called after when 42 joined under the red banner of Calvary! They cried out ‘What must we do to be saved?’ From then on they have been coming by the dozen! Thanks be to the Lord for this. ‘The Lord hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad.’’’ (Dysg. xviii. (1839) p.126; HEAC iii. 302-3)
