January 1922 News and Notes

by Compiled by Larry Miles

      From Stillwater, Okla.: “The work here is very encouraging, though strictly a mission point. We baptized two young men on Dec. 4, and they have already taken an active part in the worship.”— 0. S. Boyer.

     From Zanesville, Ohio: “ Brother J. H. Pennell has just closed a very successful meeting here, taking in ten new members.”— Mrs. Frazier.

     From Toronto: “Will you announce that I shall be at 591 Euclid Ave., Toronto, Canada, till March 27, 1922? Am glad to report the work is doing well. There have been a number of additions to the congregation with an increase in attendance at all the meetings of the church.”— L. K. Harding

A. C. Reader preached six times at Bryantsville, Indiana, in December, resulting in fourteen additions to the church. This makes sixty-five added or restored at this point within a month or so through Brother Reader’s labors.

     The basis of Christian fellowship in the work of God, says G. Campbell Morgan, is (1) the absolute Lordship of our Lord Jesus Christ; (2) the supreme authority of the Scriptures as the word of God; and (3) the all-sufficiency of the church as God’s instrumentality for the accomplishing of His work.


     This office has received an announcement of Croft Academy, near Paragould, Ark., a free Christian School. R. N. Gardner is serving the academy as principal.

     Did any fail to get goods addressed from us for Christmas ? We are not satisfied until our patrons are.

     The little church at Fifth & M Sts., Louisville, greatly enjoyed H. L. Olmstead’s recent meeting with them, and there was some increase to their membership.

     The Highland Church, Louisville, has also had a number of baptisms lately.

     We can still furnish Word and Work Lesson Quarterly for January, February and March, 5c each. The Quarterly doubled in use last year, and is still on the increase. Cards cost 4c a set, per quarter. The article in this issue, “We need a Bible” by Philip Mauro is obtainable in tract-form.


     From Carman, Manitoba: “The students of our Bible Training School are doing splendidly. I am well pleased with their development.”— H. L. Richardson.

     Correspondents will help us by preparing copy, reports, etc., more carefully; and note that we do not use the “simplified spelling.” Also, limited as we are for space, copy not appearing in other papers,— that is, not mere “carbon copies”— will find a much better chance of being printed in the Word and Work. Our matter must be fresh and interesting as possible.

     “I had several days joyous meetings and visitations with the good people of Dugger. I heard Brother Jorgenson’s name mentioned by many of the people, also that of Brother Boll’s. The brethren hold both in high esteem.”— W. J. Brown.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
