Wednesbury - Salvation Army (1880)

Report from the Salvation Army station here.

I am pleased to inform you of what God is doing here. He is saving souls. Many who are drunken, swearing, fighting men, God is bringing them down to the footstool of divine mercy. Glory be to God for what He has done for us. Young men are giving up drinking, smoking and swearing. Praise the Lord.

We all thank God in the Army that ever captain Cater and his wife came to Wednesbury. We went round the town singing and many followed us to the hall. Glory be to God for it. While some were giving their experiences one young man made a rush to the penitent form to be saved and was saved after a hard struggle. Four or five more were brought in to God. Many opposed to us. God is with us.

Better than ever, Jesus is all our song. Bless His name, last week has been a grand time to our souls and over 40 have surrendered to the King of Kings.
