April 1922 News and Notes

by Compiled by Larry Miles

From the April 1922 Word&Work

We have received this report from Berry, Ala.: “The church and school meeting at Berry, Ala., resulted in a determination to build up the Christian school, and eleven were baptized and one restored. I. B. Bradley and T. B. Thompson were with the Berry brethren two days, and J. D. Tant was there two weeks. Brother Tenney, the president of the school, plans to locate with some church in a college town this summer to continue his schooling. He may put in a full year in school.”

“I am going to send in a number of subscriptions to Word and Work soon. It is our best and it must not fail, for a great factor in proclaiming the Word would be lost.”— W. J. Johnson.

Jacksonville, Fla., March 6, 1922: “Dear Brethren: We began work with the church here yesterday; fine prospects before us. We have a fine band of disciples here.”— Η. N. Rutherford.

“Great Songs of the Church” is in growing demand. A number of congregations ordered in March. Among them Pearl and Bryan Street church, Dallas, and Cameron Avenue, Detroit.

Would some congregation supply the church in Unity, Maine, seventy-five used copies of “New Christian Hymns”— to supplement their present inadequate supply?

E. L. Jorgenson left Louisville March 29, with his family on two months’ leave of absence from the Highland Church, where he has labored nine years. He is to devote the months of April and May to the Bathurst Street Church, Toronto’, Canada. The meetings of the Highland Church will be conducted chiefly by the capable elders, R. C. Bagby, J. K. Davidson, H. L. Hickman, L. T. Logsdon, and by the preaching brethren of the congregation, C. W. Fisher and J. F. Stinnette.
Brother Fisher has just returned to Louisville from an extended trip through the South.

“I recently closed a successful meeting in Waverly, Florida.” —Frank L. Wheeler.

“Brother Hottel is to come to New Orleans for a week’s meeting beginning April 9. We hope he will like us well enough to decide to locate with us at the close of school.”— Stanford Chambers.

“From Salem, Ind. “There is great need of a mission spirit in this section and ask your prayers especially to that end, that a door may be opened along that line.”—W. H. Colglazier.

From Childress, Texas: “The work here is prospering. We are contemplating enlargement of the meeting house. Sunday morning audience can hardly be seated. Night audiences, also prayer meeting audiences, all that could be expected. Pray for us. -—R. A. Zahn.

“1 am today at Forest Hill, La., with Brother and Sister Ramsey, who are busy and happy in the Lord’s work and planning greater things. C. C. McQuiddy just now arrived from a preaching trip to Arkansas. Bro. Matthew’s health is improved.”— Stanford Chambers.

The Portland Avenue Bible Course closed on March 24, having been the very best in attendance and interest of any year so far. The teacher, Brother R. H. Boll, conducted over one hundred classes, and, in the providence of God, did not miss a single class in the course on account of sickness, or any other hindering cause.

The number of Word and Work Lesson Quarterlies sent out for the months of April, May and June, exceeded the number ordered in any previous quarter so far. The Quarterlies cost five cents each, the picture cards four cents per quarter, the Little Learner paper (for primary pupils) three cents each quarter.

The Bathurst St. Church, Toronto, has had 35 additions since September, about half the number by baptism. L. K. Harding closed his present labors with the congregation on March 26. Geo. A. Klingman is to be with these brethren through the three summer months.

Friends who were disappointed in not securing the 1921 bound volume of Word and Work before they were sold out will be glad to know that we have been able to bind up a few more, for sale at $1.50 as follows: two copies of 1918, two of 1919, four of 1921.

H. L. Olmstead is to begin a meeting with the Portland Avenue Church, Louisville, on April 9.

A. C. Reader preached at Lynnville, Tenn., March 26. He was on his way to Florida for evangelistic work.
