About The Author

Rees Howells

Rees Howells was a former miner from Wales who was converted in America and returned to his homeland during the Welsh Revival (1904-1905). He founded a local evangelistic mission, lived a life of faith and intercession, and received the fullness of the Holy Spirit. He was then called to the hidden life, before training to be a minister and with his wife went to the mission fields of Southern Africa where they saw revival for many years! After nearly ten years of service under the auspices of the South Africa General Mission, they founded the Bible College of Wales in Swansea, which became a powerhouse of prayer, faith and intercession, a large international community, with a school for missionary children, hospital and home of rest for missionaries.
