Visiting Northfield

It was with GREAT JOY that my family and I yesterday were able to visit Northfield, MA, where D. L. Moody was born and lived in his later years until his death.

Moody has always been an inspiration to me ever since I was a boy. The power of God rested upon his life, and I long for that anointing of the Holy Ghost for souls.

It has always been a desire of my heart to visit this place, see and pray over his grave, and walk about the 1894 auditorium he built by faith to hold week-long revival conferences at the campgrounds. (Our three volume series “Echoes of Yesteryear” is filled with sermons preached from behind the pulpit in this auditorium from 1894-1899

Men like D. L. Moody, C. T. Studd, F. B. Meyer, G. Campbell Morgan, Andrew Murray, and so many others, besides even Ira Sankey singing in this building. (If the furniture could speak — imagine the stories of conviction, revival, and power it witnessed!!)

The Lord led us providentially to a groundskeeper who (without us even asking) inquired if we would like to go inside the auditorium and allowed us to leave when we were through. Amazing!! Thank you, Lord.

Just as God did such a powerful work in this place — through preaching on Biblical holiness, soul-winning, power for service, full surrender, etc — we desire for Him to work again in our generation for His glory and the furtherance of the Gospel!!

How committed, concentrated, and consecrated are we unto seeing Him “rend the Heavens”?

Oh God, please….




  1. That is so awesome!! What an experience, Yes imagine the stories the furniture could tell !!

  2. I often go there to pray. It’s so peaceful. I ask God standing there, over hero and my middle name namesake’s “Lyman” grave to bring revival and to use me in doing so. I want those old bones to come alive again in me like they did in him.

  3. Thank you so much for the wonderful pics & info on the foundation of our country & influence of our godly forefathers. Thanks also for your prayers concerning the custody battle of my great grandchildren. Elements are being delayed for the so called good of everyone. May God bless your current services & many decisions made for His glory. 😎❤️🇺🇸

  4. Wow brother Caleb, thank you for sharing the experience with me, that is awesome, may the Lord continue to show you his mighty works , and what he continues to accomplish through you, Proverbs 3:5,6, have a good week in your sermons, have a good night love y’all

  5. So happy for you and your family to get to visit this place. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Always enjoy hearing from you in regards to the work and how God is working in His field. Pray for you and Katie and the children. Thank you for the pictures and may our Lord be ever magnified. You are an inspiration to me to fight on for the battle is the Lord’s!

  7. Purchased the 3 volume set and reading the sermons to my family. May God raise up another generation who will follow Him with total abandonment for self and this world. May the Lord mightily bless your family and labor for His Glory this coming year.
