Story of the Welsh Revival:
The impact of the Welsh Revival touched essentially every aspect of Welsh society, with 100,000 throughout Wales professing faith… [there were] permeating effects...“Drunkenness was immediately cut in half, and many taverns went bankrupt. Crime was so diminished that judges were presented with white gloves signifying that there were no cases of murder, assault, rape or robbery or the like to consider. The police became unemployed in many districts.Stoppages occurred in coal mines, not due to unpleasantness between management and workers, but because so many foul-mouthed miners became converted and stopped using foul language… the horses which handled the coal trucks in the mines could no longer understand what was being said…"
