Poole - Salvation Army (1879)

This is a monthly report from the Salvation Army station here.

Capt. Wood has gone to Bridport. Of his farewell tea he says: "A glorious tea and hallelujah meeting. Bro. Railton gave a powerful address, and the power of God came down, and 27 precious souls came out and fell down against the old table we had for a penitent-form, and cried to the Lord for mercy, and He set them at liberty - some of the blackest sinners out of hell. Hallelujah!"

From, 'The Salvationist', May 1879, page 138.

GOD is saving all along the line. The past month has been a glorious time; the worst of men are getting saved...Our places are crowded to overflowing and the offerings are rising every week. The open-air meetings are glorious, both men and women are going in. The publicans are crying out; their craft has been in danger ever since Sisters Atkinson and Foster have been here. 

 From, 'The Salvationist', June 1879, page 153.

GOD is saving here, and in His strength we are determined to besiege the fortresses of Satan more fiercely than ever, that captives may be set at liberty.

From, 'The Salvationist', December 1879, page 327.
