Coal Country Revival Update: More People Saved "than the Population of Two Towns"

Mark Ellis : Jun 21, 2016  God Reports

"In Logan County Schools, a young cancer survivor felt stirred to preach to others in the hallway. Students filled the hallway to hear the message and some even made decisions to follow Christ."

"My life has gone back to normal," says Bo Copley, the unemployed coal miner who had a brief encounter with Hillary Clinton when she visited Williamson. Copley, his wife, and their children, have attended almost every event connected with the revival over the last two months.
He says the number of people saved exceeds the population of the two small towns at the epicenter of God's move of the Spirit.

After he was laid off at the mine, Copley's family has relied on his wife's photography business to support them. He is still seeking work. "I've had a few job offers, but they are not what the Lord has for me," he says.
Matt Hartley, the Tennessee evangelist who was God's instrument to spark revival, has taken a break for a few weeks. "He was exhausted," says Sonya Hackney, at Regional Church of God. "Nobody thought when we scheduled him for three days that he would be here for eight weeks."
