Have you ever wondered
about the planting and growth of churches in your community? Some,
of course, were planted in recent years perhaps in the 1990s

magazine often reported. Take the March 7, 1936, Evangel,
for example. Under the column, "In the Whitened Harvest Field,"

Flower Pentecostal Heritage
We have just closed a revival sponsored jointly by the Fayetteville
Gospel Tabernacle and the Fairground Assembly. Forty-three were
saved and 23 received the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
San Jon, N.M.
The Lord is blessing the work here. Evangelist and Mrs. Clarence
Love were with us in a revival a short time ago. About 32 were saved
and 10 received the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
San Jose, Calif.
This is Evangelist Bruce Gibsons sixth week at the
Upper Room Pentecostal Mission. A few have professed salvation and
a number have received the baptism in the Holy Spirit. [Brother
Gibson] makes everything so plain and brings the gospel right down

We just closed a very successful meeting at the Gospel Tabernacle,
Rolfe Evangelistic Party in charge. [Despite the record-breaking
cold] the crowds kept coming. During the three-and-a-half-week meeting
35 knelt for salvation, most of them young people between the ages
of 15 and 25.

Moscow, Pa. The
Lord has given us a very precious four-week revival. Charles M.
Shaffer, 15-year-old evangelist, is in charge. We praise God for
His faithfulness in saving about 40 souls.

We recently closed a four-week meeting with [former prison
inmate] Mattie Howard, evangelist, assisted by her brother Leon.
Hundreds of people attended and 33 came forward for salvation, most
of them young people.

In a four-and-one-half-week meeting, despite the sub-zero weather,
the crowds were remarkable. Thirty-seven professed Christ as their
personal Savior, and 13 were filled with the blessed Holy Spirit.
