June 1920 News and Notes

by Compiled By Larry Miles

Reese writes from Graton, Calif., “We have had a good school here. Fifty-two enrolled, property all paid for. O. W. Gardner will be president next year. The prospect is good for better attendance.” 

     The unexpected demand for the W ord a n d W o r k Lesson Quarterly from additional schools has completely exhausted our supply for this quarter, and some have been refused. The Lessons for the next quarter will be issued in June. Let us have your order early. The Quarterlies cost four cents each. 

G. C. Stillinger writes from Spearfish, S. D .: “We are having good Bible studies and good sermons. Brother Hull is a fine preacher.” Brother Hull himself wrote us sometime ago: “One added yesterday at morning services. Fair attendance in spite of snow storm which has been on here last two days. This makes seven added since we came, March 2. Every prospect of eventual success. We will be glad to know that you are praying for us. Others are praying for the work here, and we certainly appreciate this. More fellowship is now coming in.” 

     From Emmett Creacy, Horse Cave, Ky.: “There are 30 or 40 Christians in and around Cave City who plan to have a tent meeting in September. They have no house but are arranging to build as soon as possible.” 

     The Portland Avenue Church and Highland Church, Louisville, co-operating, began a tent meeting in South Louisville May 30. The purpose is to establish a congregation in that untouched field. 

     Set of seven great tracts, twenty-five cents, postpaid. Read the good news about the coming song book on another page. 

     About 2,000 copies of Brother McCaleb’s tract, “How May Christians Go and Preach,” remain for free distribution. Gifts to cover the printing, expense on 10,000 would be welcome. 

     We do not know a better band of brethren, or a work of its kind more worthy of general and generous fellowship than the effort to complete the house of worship at Glendale, Ky. We have received the following news note from Brother B. B. Brooks —to whom gifts may be sent: “Our final plans have been submitted, and order entered for the tile to build our church house. To date we have on hand $205, and $1,225 subscribed, making a total of $1,430 available. We estimate it will take approximately $3,000 more to complete the house, and we know if we are true to the cause our needs will be supplied. Our meeting is set for the second Lord’s Day in September, and by all means we want the house completed by that time.”

      The New Orleans church is now in the midst of tent meeting work. 

      There have been ten baptisms at the Burnett Avenue Mission, Louisville, during the past month. 

H. L. Olmstead’s writings are always good, but the article on “The Righteousness of God,” this month is especially so. 

     One free copy of “Reminiscences and Sermons,” in perfect condition, for one new subscription, if requested. 

     From Samuel Bond, Cleveland, Ohio: “April 17, 1920, S. Russell Bond and Lou E. Hardison were united in marriage at their home in Cleveland. Both are faithful members of tne Church of Christ here. May they ever be faithful and true to each other. We bespeak for them a bright future as they travel down life’s pathway.” 

A. K. Ramsey writes from Forest Hill, La.: “Seven baptized, one reclaimed, some good people found, others interested, in fifteen-day meeting in which J. E. Wainwright, of Texarkana, assisted the Forest Hill congregation.” 

C. C. Merritt writes from Millerton, Okla.: “I am visiting here and preaching every night. One is to be baptized tomorrow.”

      A twelve page booklet setting forth in a brief interesting story the conversion of Evariste Hebert and his wonderful work in the Master’s name in converting over 1400 hundred Creole French Catholics. Price five cents each. In quantities of ten or more, three cents each. Address the author, Stanford Chambers, 1129 Seventh St., New Orleans. Proceeds applied to the cause of French Missions.
