Carriers of the Fire: The Women of the Welsh Revival 1904/05


The untold story of a Revival outpouring that changed the lives of women across a whole nation. Housewives became radical evangelists determined to reach the despised and the broken. Young girls became teenage revivalists. Chapel soloists became inspired worship leaders carrying the heart of a nation in song. Silenced women found their voice as fiery preachers. Teams of men and women were released across the UK. Signs and wonders in the skies were reported in the national press along side the prayers of previously hidden women. The religious establishment was shaken as young girls played their part as heaven broke through to earth and 100,000 came to faith in a few short months and the fires of revival were carried to the nations.
