Old Basford - Salvation Army (1882)

The past week has been a most blessed time to our souls. Hallelujah! We have found that the Lord is true to His promise to be with His children. The devil is raging and trying to upset us, but the Lord is on our side and souls are getting saved. We are believing for a lot more who are holding just on the edge of the pool. Our prayer is, “Oh, Lord, help them to surrender.”

From, 'The War Cry', May 1882.

This does not sound too much like a revival, but the Lord had been moving for some time around Nottingham, and there have been several reports over the months, but none had quite reached my criteria.

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

Sunday was a day that will not be soon forgotten here. The big drum, assisted by cornets and tambourines helped us wonderfully. Barracks packed at night and 29 crying for mercy.

From, 'The War Cry', July 1882.
