Soho - Salvation Army (1875)

This is one of the monthly reports from the Salvation Army station at Soho.

At this station we are all on fire and the devil and sin are daily defeated in our midst. Praise the Lord!

Our open-air services are wonderful times. Tears can be seen in the eyes of many as we speak the words of life, and the power of God is very manifest even amidst the open vice and wretchedness which abound in the streets of Soho.

From, 'The Christian Mission Magazine', August 1875, page 244.

After a little over a year's earnest labour in Soho, a most cheering anniversary meeting has been held, at which it was demonstrated that the Mission had succeeded in that very outpost of hell as marvellously as ever in its history. The local treasurer was able to say that he knew of seventy-five persons truly converted during the year, and now walking consistently. Such results are not to be accomplished in such a neighbourhood without an immensity of effort. More than a thousand services have been held indoors and out, which, probably, not less than an aggregate of 65,000 people have attended.
