Lledrod (1859)

There was at Lledrod an influential deacon who disparaged the Revival and set little store on the many converts he heard about. " I prefer an empty purse to one filled with spurious money," said the cynic. Only a few came to the first Revival service. Preaching from the words, " Ephraim is a cake not turned," David Morgan asked the elders, " When did the Lord give you a turn in the big seat here? " He came again a week later, when all felt he was a man sent from God. His every word thrilled the people like magnetic shocks. Forty-seven souls escaped from the fowler's snare.
