Revival on board a convict ship

From the book The Convict Ship and England's Exiles by Dr Colin Browning MD who was Naval Surgeon and a Christian

You can read the whole story from pages 231 to 237 here:

As a matter of fact the whole book is worth reading! Dr Browning did an amazing work amongst the convicts on eight convict voyages between 1831 and 1849. By reading the preface you will understand why 156 of the 220 convicts gave their lives to Christ. By the end of each voyage most could read. The guards had little to do on C. S. Theresa because of the convicts changed behaviour. No floggings, no use of the 220 irons on board.

Chapter 15: Rainbow or the Serpent?
Observing the Arnhem Land Aboriginal Revival, 1979 and now.

by John Blacket

Fire in the Outback by John Blacket (Free eBook)

God took the outcasts - rejected and despised Australian Aborigines - and transformed whole communities in a few days, first on an island in north Australia and later across the north, centre and west of Australia. This fire of revival transformed health, hygiene, attitude to work and education, and brought true reconciliation and love between families, clans and tribes that had been fighting for many generations.
