Willington - Salvation Army (1879)

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

GOD is moving upon this town in mighty saving power. The Prince of \Vales's Theatre, which has been used long for the amusement of men on the way to hell, is now engaged night after night for the salvation of souls and since I came here and unfurled tho Banner, many of the vilest have been gloriously saved. Hallelujah!

Although the theatre is draughty, we are mending it up and getting ready for a mighty campaign this winter.

From, 'The Salvationist', November 1879, page 307.

For future reports see, 'The War Cry' which began January 1880.

Praise God! During the past fortnight, we have been having some glorious times; the arm of the Lord has been made bear in the salvation of precious souls. Glory be to Jesus! 40 fell into the fountain and got washed in the precious blood. Bless the dear Lord forever and forever! Our Saturday nights Free and Easy's are very blessed times. One day brother said, “talk about Free and Easy meetings, I call them Wells of Salvation meetings! That’s better." Yesterday (Sunday), was a day never to be forgotten. Husbands and wives came weeping their way to Jesus. Willington shall conquer by the help of God. Our open-airs getting better. Splendid band last night, people followed us in crowds. We had a good time inside and seven came to Jesus. Oh, may the dear Lord keep them faithful. There are many more wounded, but we are believing that Jesus will save them.

From, 'The War Cry', July 1880.
