Did you know that 80% of Americans heard Whitefield preach at one point or another in the mid-18th century on at least one of his 13 trips across the ocean? Two guides led us through the history and I also gave a short lecture on Whitefield’s death and burial. This was a very moving, unforgettable visit.
