New Brompton - Salvation Army (1875)

Although the devil has used every means in his power to prevent it the work has broken out gloriously here. On the afternoon of October 21st I preached and four sought and found Jesus. On the 28th we had a mighty time - the Spirit of God took hold of the people and nineteen wept their way to Calvary. Hallelujah! The following Sabbath several others were seeking mercy, and on Wednesday, 4th, Miss Pollett preached, when eight others declared for Jesus. Amongst these was a dear lad, whose mother pulled him out of the hall by the collar and declared she would kill him if he went again to the ''Shakers." But, praise the Lord! he holds on his way, rejoicing in God, and praying for the salvation of his parents. The Lord bless these lads!

There are eighteen of them that are meeting with us, who, not very long ago, used to pelt us in the open air with mud and fireworks; but now they are to be found singing and praying in those very streets. All glory be to Jesus!
