Rees Howells was a miner in Wales in the late 1800’s who went on to discover the reality of Christ in his own life. In 1910, he married. He and his wife felt the call of God to serve as missionaries in Africa. Having been deeply touched by the Welsh revival, he saw the revival follow him to Africa and the power of God fall wherever he preached.
His real work began when he returned to his beloved Wales and established the Bible College of Wales in 1924. The college came into its own as the second world war started and Rees Howells gathered intercessors to pray with him against the spiritual forces at work in the world at that time. Rees Howells understood the the words of Paul in Ephesians 6, where he wrote: ‘We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places’.
The intercessors would listen to the world news on their radios and then gather to pray. They learnt to see world events transformed through prevailing prayer.
Using the same principals as George Mueller, Hudson Taylor, and many others, for raising funds – at the time Rees Howell only had two shillings (ten pence) in his possession - he established the Bible College in Swansea, and also a home for missionaries children, and a refugee centre for Jewish children escaping the Nazi terror.
Today the Bible College of Wales has re-opened to teach the same principals to a new generation. Revelation TV visited the college, and met and talked with staff and students. The documentary – REES HOWELLS, INTERCESSOR – is the result of that visit.
If you want to go deeper in your spiritual walk with God, it is one to watch
