Charles Spurgeon, de opwerkingsprediker uit Londen spreekt in een van zijn preken over de opwekking op de Lüneburger Heide, onder Louis Harms. De wortels van Kwasizabantu gaan terug tot op deze opwekking in Noord-Duitsland.
VISITS FROM THE LORD.

Oh! may the Master send the sacred fire into this congregation! I shall never rest content until I have, going out of this church, many who count not their lives dear to them to preach the gospel among the heathen. I wonder how it is this has not broken out among us before. Is it any ministry that is faulty in this respect? It may be so. Then will I cry to heaven to be taught better. But at Hermansberg, under Pastor Harms, the whole village seemed to be moved with a desire to carry Christ’s gospel to Africa, and they emigrated in shiploads, to become missionaries there. Of course, many said that Harms was infatuated. Blessed infatuation! May it fall upon many of Christ’s ministers.
