I was honored with having a few stones, dirt, rotten eggs, and pieces of dead cats thrown at me. In spite of these distractions, George Whitefield continued to preach for three hours. He had the most recognizable name in America, drawing thousands of listeners wherever he preached. Brutal mobs sometimes attacked Whitefield and his followers, and once he was stoned until nearly dead. He preached in fields rather than churches and even without amplification, could be heard by 30,000 or more. He pushed himself so hard and preached with such intensity, that afterward he often became ill. After preaching at Harvard it was reported that “The College is entirely changed. The students are full of God.” Praised as the greatest preacher that England has ever produced, George Whitefield lived each day doing what God had called him to do.
