issue of the paper we enter upon one more year of its
ministry. We would convey to our readers our warmest and
sincerest wishes for a year of very much blessing and of
"His increase". Amidst the world troubles and
Christian trials and perplexities we need so much help in
light, assurance, and support from the Lord. We pray that
the ministry of this little paper may be used in some
small measure to meet this need.
In our last issue we used what to some was a rather enigmatical phrase: 'Much prayerful help is needed for the future. Changes are pending and much wisdom is required in making decisions and resolving problems.' We had hoped that by this time we might have had something more definite to say. We may have it before this issue reaches you, but we can here intimate what we were referring to. The premises in which for so many years we have had our offices and stores, as well as the residence of our two so faithful and devoted secretaries, are in the market and are virtually sold for housing development. It is only the final word of consent by the planning authorities which is awaited, and may come any day - or be refused. This will involve us in a major move, and at present we cannot see how this could be in this same area. Thus your prayer fellowship is much needed. He who has cared for this ministry for these forty-seven years will not fail. No room for more now.
