Excerpt from Muktifauj: Or Forty Years With the Salvation Army in India and Ceylon The Salvation Army in India has followed a path differing from that of other workers in this vast Mission Field. There has been desire whatever in doing so to re ect on the plans, or policies, pursued by others but we have believed that our own path was the most direct, and that in choosing it we were guided by God. Certainly there was idea that our path would be an easier one. Looking back w on a period of forty-one years, we are able to realize that we have indeed been following the Pillar of Fire by night and of Cloud by day. Not one promise has failed of fulfilment. If we had to go over the ground again there is little in principle that we Should propose to alter, and we think that we may humbly claim that the seal of God's approval has rested upon our labours. True we have made some mistakes which a richer experience has enabled us to rectify. We have also Spent some time in reconitring some highways and byways which proved to be fruitless and unprofitable. But we think that apart altogether from the bunches of grapes of Eshcol, and other fruits of this goodly land, which we are able to present to our readers in these pages, we can claim to have given a general impetus to Missionary Work in India, and to have helped to bridge the gulf which divides India from Christ, for other feet besides our Own. When we landed in Bombay a leading Christian paper had recently stated that some of their readers had asked them to give an account of existing revival work in India. The Editor mourned that he could t report what, so far as he was aware, did t then exist. There was an atmo sphere Oi depression resting upon the Indian Mission field.
