“In times of evangelism, the evangelist seeks the sinner, in times of revival the sinner comes chasing after the Lord.” – J. Edwin Orr.
The 1904–1905 Welsh Revival was the largest Christian revival in Loughor, Wales during the 20th century. While by no means the best known of revivals, it was one of the most dramatic in terms of its effect on the population, and triggered revivals in several other countries. Evan John Roberts (June 8, 1878 – January 29, 1951), was an Evangelist and leading figure of the 1904–1905 Welsh Revival. In 1904 Evan Roberts was 26 years old. For many years Roberts had felt a ‘calling’. Always a spiritual man, someone who would sometimes stay up all night engaged in deep communion with God.
