Recounts the revivals under his ministry, "The total number added to the church under my ministry of 25 years is 2,290!..Every successive year we were visited with revival seasons, and later numbers who had received the blessing were added to our own and to the neighboring churches.

"We have received the early and the latter rain, and have enjoyed precious revival seasons. There have been added to this church since its organization, 1456; five hundred on profession of their faith in Christ. The largest number added in any given year is 280, subjects, for the most part, of the great revival in 1858."
