The Dictionary of Theological Terms defines "revival" as "a quickening and kindling of spiritual life in an individual Christian, church, community, or country. In this view it is a work of God’s Spirit, dispelling the darkness and deadness of spiritual declension."

Revival is an activity of Holy Spirit that is evidenced in the changed lives of people.  God's power and presence is overwhelmning and is infectious.  True revivals leave lasting marks to those who have truly experienced it.

Awakening Cambodia

Missionaries Ted and Sou Olbrich

Since the Khmer Rouge genocide of the late 1970's where up to 3 million people were brutally murdered in a season of Cambodian history that mirrored the atrocities of the Nazi's Final Solution, the nation of Cambodia has struggled to regain stability. This tragic time period left the nation in social and economic shambles, compounding hopelessness and poverty in a world without the knowledge of Jesus Christ. The story of the birth and continued ministry of the Foursquare Cambodian Church is one of miraculous proportions. In 1999, the Lord sent missionaries Ted and Sou Olbrich to serve the people of Cambodia with a mission to train and equip Cambodian nationals to reach their own. The Lord continues to bring true revival through the hearts and service of the Cambodian Foursquare Church.

The Welsh Revivals of 1859 and 1904

The revivals of 1859 and 1904 in Wales stand as powerful examples, marked by a commitment to prayer, bold preaching for repentance within the church, and a community-wide spiritual awakening.

During this outpouring of the Spirit, churches were packed, streets were filled with believers singing hymns, and crime rates and drunkenness decreased dramatically. Prayer meeting routinely ran late into the night, and attendees were often seen either crying over their brokenness or shouting for joy at God’s grace as nominalism and dead orthodoxy were replaced by passionate love for Jesus. This phenomenon was highly publicized by the press as the spiritual awakening impacted all of Welsh life. This documentary traces the origins of the revival, introduces us to its leaders such as Dafydd Morgan and Thomas Charles Edwards, and follows its lasting impact upon the world and on world missions.
