We are told many times in the Spirit of Prophecy that now is the time to circulate our literature. With a firm belief that the message is to go to every soul, we have tried to sense our obligation to give this message to all within our reach, and we are circulating such literature as can be used in this work. We ordered twenty copies of the Harvest Ingathering number of the Signs of the Times for use among the people here.

Just at this time one of the leading merchants wanted a small job done, and it so happened that the writer was the only one in the place that could do it, and thus offered his services. When the merchant desired to know what the charge would be, and was told that there would be no charge, he said that he would give use something for my missionary fund ; and to our surprise, when the job was finished, he sent along his card and a cheque for X With other offerings that we received, we raised the amount for missions to 15 14s. It may he of interest to know that when the writer first met this man, over two years ago, while circulating the Tali Moni, he stormed and raged and said that we were trying to break up homes with our teaching, and that he would give him two 'shillings to keep it away.

But now he will not only read the paper, but is subscribing for the American Signs magazine, and will read anything that I take to him. I have also held some, Bible studies in his home, and his only brother is subscribing for the same paper. Besides these we have five other subscribers for this magazine, including the officer commanding the garrison troops. Another very interesting item that might be mentioned is our Chinese work. We have increased our club of Chinese Signs to twenty copies a month. Among our subscribers we have some of the storekeepers, the government interpreters, the Chinese evangelist, and the Chinese consul.

Just before the commencement of our week of prayer, we had the joy of burying five precious souls in the watery grave, as an evidence of their desire to follow in the footsteps of the meek and lowly Saviour. Two others, a man and a women, have been nominal Sabbath-keepers for many years, but the tobacco habit has kept from them the blessings of a true connection with the message, and at last they have made a full surrender. Another of the candidates is the widow of a man that used to attend our meetings as far back as This woman was also a slave to King Tobacco, but is now one of the brightest Christians we have found in this field.

The fifth is a woman who is the wife of a missionary now deceased in New Guinea. She is also an earnest Christian. Our week of prayer was a blessing to all who attended. We held meetings in four different places. Three of these were held in the Samoan language, Brother Howse having translated the readings for these services. All that could do so, met at Apia on the last day of the feast. The meeting that usually occupies an hour continued for over two hours. All declared that God had come very near by His Spirit, and that having given of their means in the annual offering, they desired to give themselves also.

This offering was the record for Samoa, reaching the sum of 32 12s. For all these things we give God the praise. We realize that it is not by might nor by human power that this work can be done, but by the Spirit of the Lord. Recently it has been my privilege to visit the Richmond and Tweed Rivers of New South Wales, which territory is now ceded to and under the control of the Queensland Conference. The Lord has blessed the eldership of the Corndale Church, and, as a result, souls have responded to the message. We now have four colporteurs working in this territory, and we are planning to have a tent mission operating there.

The Lord has wonderfully blessed the company of believers at Woolooga, on the Kingaroy Line. Several have recently taken hold of the truth, and on the Sunday of my visit, at a beautiful spot in the Widgee Creek, three adults followed their Lord in the sacred rite of baptism. Others are preparing for the same step. Following on my visit to Woolooga, I spent the next week-end at Calliope.

We have some faithful souls in this company, and a profitable time was spent together. The Lord drew very near us as three sisters went down into the water, demonstrating to angels and men their determination to follow the Master. The church at Rockhampton has had many " ups and downs," but lately the ups " seem to he in the majority. One lady of influence has taken her stand for the truth, and others are requesting baptism. The churches at Toowoomba and Gatton also report new additions to the message. God has blessed the missions that are now in operation in the conference.

Cormack, who has lately arrived in Queensland. In a large picture theatre in the centre of South Brisbane, these workers have started a new winter effort, and thus far an excellent attendance is reported. In Townsville, Pastor L. Currow , and his wife have had a hard struggle, but perseverance is winning the day. Souls are now beginning to respond to the efforts of these faithful workers. In Maryborough Brother Reuben Hare and Miss Westerman are working earnestly, and the Lord has blessed them in giving souls for their efforts in this prejudiced town. Newbold are labouring.. Since the Camp-meeting a Sabbathschool has been organised of about twenty-five members and others are still interested.

We are thankful to report that the finances of the conference are now on the up'-grade, and last quarter, ending March 31, a record tithe was received. While we rejoice at this, we long to see a better percentage of tithe-payers. If all were faithful in this; we would be enabled to put mot workers into the field and hasten. The week of prayer has been a great blessing to our people. Decided victories have been gained, and from a letter just received from Brother Mills, the treasurer, we are confident that we shall exceed our aim of ; for already was in hand and one large church and some companies had yet to report.

To God we give all the glory. For the quarter ending March 31, the secretary of the Sabbath-school and Missionary Volunteer Departments reports decided increases in both lines of work. At the time of writing I am on board the Canberra en route for the far north of Queensland. I expect to be away for two months. We thank God for His goodness, and with all our dear people we determine by the grace of God to push a vigorous, successful offensive until Jesus comes.

Week of Prayer in Victoria Park, W. To me it was a wonderful time. We held all our meetings in the Alexander Hall, which we have engaged for our church services. Although our district is a scattered one and the weather left much to be desired, our meetings were well attended, especially those at 6. Our young people's meetings held at 4 p. Each one felt that our dear Heavenly Father was very near, and all reconsecrated their lives afresh to His service.

May God bless our young people. I ing meetings we found the deeply spiritual nature of the readings very uplifting. After listening to the reading for the last Sabbath we had a social meeting and the Holy Spirit made itself very manifest amongst us. The first testimony; a. He has but lately come to a knowledge of this precious truth and is rejoicing in the mercy and love of our dear Saviour. He deeply regrets having so little time in which to labour for the Master, and that his opportunities are confined to the sending out of messages.

He pleads with us to work while we have the time and strength. Tears flowed fast while this testimony was being read. Almost all testified to the goodness and mercy of our Heavenly Father. ThoSe who were too overcome to speak, mutely testified by simply rising and sitting down again. Occasionally we sang verses of that beautiful hymn, " I surrender all. We earnestly deSire the prayers of all God's people that many souls in Victoria Park may be won to this beautiful truth. MARY E. Came Solidly Into the Truth CliTE bright young lady has come solidly into the truth through missionary correspondence during- the past six weeks.

Her mother also believes in the Sabbath, and the daughter thinks she is going to keep' it. She is a Lutheran. The young lady says she sees nothing in the doctrines of Seventh-day Adventists but that she can believe with all her heart, and nothing in the line of duty but that she can readily accept Books have been lent to her Which she intends to buy shortly, and she has subscribed for Our periodicals. IX, page , which says, " The work of God in this earth can never be finished until the men and women comprising our church membership rally to the work and unite their efforts with those of ministers and church officers," would seem to indicate that if we have a finished work in sight it is our duty to be very earnest now in our home mission activity, ever seeking as church members to work for souls until that glad time when all God's people have been sealed, and the cry shall ring from heaven's courts, " It is finished.

Stewart, the Victorian Home Mission Secretary, and planning a series of conventions to cover a period Of four weeks. The first church visited was Bendigo. It is a fine city, from the many mines of which great quantities of gold have been gathered. We reached here on Friday, May On Sabbath we were taken to the comfortable and well appointed church, pleasantly situated in High Street. The morning hour was occupied in placing before the congregation the importance of the home mission work, confirming from scripture and the Spirit of Prophecy its great value and wonderful opportunities.

Through all ages it has been God's plan to win souls to Him through the church, and the lay members of the denomination have as clear a call to go out and win souls as has the ordained minister or conference worker. The afternoon was devoted to plans for an immediate home mission effort through our periodicals, tracts, correspondence, and Bible studies. Suggestions were made as to how to commence and continue this work. A fair response was made, but rain commenced to fall Sunday evening and continued through the next morning, rather upsetting our plans.

However it cleared in the afternoon, and Brother Stewart and I decided to go along, others being unable to accompany us. In just over an hour we disposed of twenty-four copies, working directly around the church. The following day four sisters came along for instruction and territory for tract loaning. The necessary help being given these four went out with their note books and twelve tracts each, returning after about an hour's visiting with excellent reports and glad hearts.

The next day, Wednesday, was successfully spent in Signs and magazine work, concluding with the regular prayer and missionary meeting. Somehow this meeting was rather different from the usual missionary meetings, and it reminded sonic of the " old time " meetings. A splendid company gathered, some having a four-mile walk to the meeting, eight miles in all.

At first the meeting went along much as usual, but' when the time arrived for reports of labour and experiences in work, a new interest was aroused, and as one after another arose and told of what the Lord had enabled them to do for Him during the preceding three days, we certainly felt the Spirit of God in our midst. All who had worked had something good to say, , and just around the church homes were found openings for the truth, much to the surprise of the members who had previously felt that Bendigo was about worked out. When we systemize and concentrate it is surprising the many openings that can be found.

Before the meeting closed that evening, orders for tracts came in far beyond the supply, and we have since heard that this church is weekly circulating upwards of one hundred tracts, selling many magazines, and securing Signs readers. One brother, who told us he could do nothing, went out one day and did splendidly, and so far has received about twenty subscribers in the new Signs Campaign. Are You a Teacher IF you are, you are a debtor to your scholars just as surely as Paul was a debtor " both to the wise, and to the unwise.

So is the Sabbath-school teacher indebted to every member of his class. Many people would gladly spend time and money to prepare themselves for a place in this work, that they might be the means of bringing some one into the truth. The Sabbath-school - teacher has even a more important work than that to do. To him is entrusted the responsibility of instructing those who are already in the truth that they may continue in the truth and remain faithful unto the end. No one ever leaves the truth while he is a regular attendant at the Sabbath-school.

No one ever leaves the Sabbath-school who is interested in the lessons. Herein lies the grand opportunity of the Sabbath-school teacher. Make the lessons interesting. You can do so by the grace of God, if you will devote yourself to the work, knowing that the Lord has called you to it.

Do not be discouraged. Your failure, or partial failure, results from lack of appreciation of the responsibility God has laid upon you. If you understood the importance of doing your work better, and still better, you would be surprised how easily you would improve. Teaching is a noble art that every one should do his best to develop. Especially should the Sabbath-school teacher give time and thought to it.

The day-school teacher spends several years in training under the guidance of experienced instructors. This he does in order that he may be able to impart to young people information. How often I have heard expressions similar to this from teachers Do you know Johnny So and So I saw him smoking a cigarette the other day ; I am told he goes to the picture shows almost every night, and also gambles a little. Such a pity He used to be a good boy was in my Sabbath-school class a year or two ago but he lost his interest and soon stopped coming.

Tycho Brahe |

May the Lord have mercy on little Johnny. Also may the Lord forgive his teacher who when he had a good little boy, or old man, or anybody else attending his Sabbath-school class, did not appreciate the seriousness of his calling enough to make the lessons and the class sufficiently interesting to keep the little boy or the old man in the Sabbath-school. Next week I shall point out some common causes of failure, or partial failure in Sabbath-school teaching, causas that can be easily rectified. Obituaries DAwEs. Died at the home of her parents, Park Street, Auburn, at the age of twelve years and five months, Myrtle, the youngest child of Mr.

She was one of the lambs of the flock who loved and served her Lord with a clear hope of seeing Him soon. Although an invalid all her life, yet she did not complain, but was content to leave her life in the hands of Him who does all things well. Forseveral weeks before her death she was very sick and was willing and content to die, being confident that the Lord would remember her on the resurrection day. A large number of relatives and friends followed her remains to the graveyard, where we committed her body to its last resting place, and her life to Him who will keep it safely until that great day.

To the sorrowing parents there is comfort " Thus saith the Lord ; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord ; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy. E thel May Sobey died of the dread disease meningitis, in the Melbourne General Hospital Monday, April 16, , aged twenty-eight years.

It is with feelings of sadness and. Our departed sister was, in her girlhood, a member of Bendigo Sabbathschool ; but of recent years resided with her widowed mother at Albert Park, Melbourne. It was on a bleak, cold day that her remains were conveyed to Coburg,Cemetery, thereto rest in undisturbed sleep until the Archangel's voice shall wake the dead.

Our hearts go out in sympathy for Sister Sobey and her family in their hour of sorrow, and our prayer is that the anus of omnipotent love may be about them, and that the sweet Spirit of the Saviour may comfort their sad hearts. Truly " in the midst of life we are in death. After the first stroke he lay in a precarious condition for several weeks, but under skilled medical attention and nursing, part of the time at Warburton Sanitarium, he so far recovered that his friends were led to hope for his recovery, but a second stroke, received on Sabbath eve, May 18, resulted in his death.

Brother Burton was brought up with the Methodists, and, prior to his observance of Jehovah's Sabbath, was an accredited local preacher with that body of Christians. Our brother was a -man possessed of sterling Christian qualities, and was held in high esteem by all who knew him. He stepped into the light of the third angel's message nineteen years ago, his first interest being aroused at Balaclava Melbourne camp-meeting.

During all these years he has been a consistent member of Windsor Church, where, from time to time, he filled some church office, at one time being church elder. His presence will be sadly missed. Our brother has left a wife, six sons, and one daughter to mourn their loss. May theLord sustain them in their deep sorrow.

Four of the sons are at the battle's front fighting for their king and country. He was laid to rest in the Brighton Cemetery, Monday afternoon, May 21, where he will sleep till the Lifegivers' trumpet call. The funeral service was conducted by the writer, assisted by Pastor J.

Pastor Cole is making a brief visit to Norfolk Island, calling at Lord Howe on his forward and return voyages. In the early history of our work at Norfolk, Pastor Cole laboured there for a time; and is well known to many of the people. Sister Cole accompanied her husband on this trip.

THE Wahroonga Sanitarium continues well filled with patrons. At the request of sonic of the patients who wish to have a better understanding of the prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation, Pastor Smith arranged to give studios two or three afternoons a week. Fourteen or fifteen availed themselves of the privilege of these studios.

Some have gone from the institution and others have come, but it speaks well for the interest that a few haVe attended right through. I questioned him concerning the various points of. The source of his information was primarily the Signs of the Times, although after keeping the Sabbath alone for some months he was visited by a colporteur who was working in his district. This man not only seems to be well informed as to the doctrines we teach, but givesevidenceof a sincere desire to yield his life wholly to the Lord.

The San Francisco Convention League has kindly placed at our disposal the Exposition Auditorium, lighted and heated, and the use of its numerous committee rooms and pipe organ, free of charge. It has extended to our denomination a most cordial invitation to hold our next General Conference there. It seems indeed providential that this immense building with all its advantages and conveniences, has been so freely offered to us. He writes " We have four acres of good land at a rental of a shilling an acre, and the building will soon be up.

It is a beautiful place. The atmosphere is cool and bracing mornings and evenings. The Lord hats worked in giving us the sympathy and help of the government, and the commLsioner has been very kind. One sister in New South Wales sent in toward this building. The great conference has closed. The delegates have gone, and in two days we shall take the Korea Mara for San Francisco, where wo shall be due May We have had a most profitable meeting.

We were together from April 5 to the 25th. We did such thorough work during the conference that we did not have very much left over business. Brother Fulton's long experience in the mission fields and his acquaintance with the affairs in the Asiatic Division eminently qualify him for the work, and we are glad that he has been chosen to serve in this capacity. It will probably be July I when we reach Washington.

The judgments of God are in the land. They speak in solemn warning, saying, " Be ye also ready ; for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. I appeal to them not to disregard the fulfilling of the signs of the times which say so plainly that the end is near. Prophecy is rapidly fulfilling. The hours of probation aro fast passing.

We have no time -not a moment--to lose. Let us not be found sleeping on guard. Let no one say in his heart, or by his works, " My Lord delayeth His corning. Let us persuade inen and women everywhere to repent and flee from the wrath to come, Let us arouse them to imfor we little mediate preparation know what is before us. Let ministers and lay members go forth -into the ripening fields.

They will find their harvest wherever they proclaim the forgotten truths of the Bible. They will find those who will accept the truth, and who will devote their lives to winning souls to Christ. W Show less. We had travelled all day and were now in the far south of the Hashemite kingdom of Jordan. That day we had stood on the summit of Mt. Nebo where Moses stood before us the Jordan, to the left the Dead Sea; a green patch beyond Jordan was Jericho, to the right were the rugged hills of Gilead.

That day we had visited Dhibon where the famous Moabite stone was found. We had crossed the valleys of the Zared and the Arnon Num. Now we were to enter Petra. Darkness settled. Our party, now mounted on sturdy Arab horses, was carefully picking its way down the narrow ravine. Underfoot, the horses' hooves crunched on the rocky floor of the canyon. Above, a pencil line of starry sky showed between the towering rocky crags. We sang hymns as we rode and the granite walls threw the echoes back to us. There seemed no end to that narrow gorge, but at last after one and a half hours of riding the valley opened out and we were in Petra.

Now, on Sabbath morning, I was relaxed in the shade of a friendly Australian gum tree. From the recesses of a cave came a savoury and appetizing smell betokening the preparation of breakfast in the camp kitchen. Overhead, in the rockhewn tombs, many of our party had slept in comfort. Others were living in tents.

A rattling sound drawing ever nearer heralded the approach of a little donkey bearing its burden of four five-gallon drums of water from the spring. Across from me a Jordanian soldier of the Arab Legion, in leggings and spurs, reclined in the shade.

Sabbath school, with an attendance of sixty-two, including several local Bedouins, was held in the open air. It was a beautiful spot, a natural amphitheatre in the shadow of the towering rocks. We had no hymn books and no accompaniment, but when did singing sound better Fifty and more Adventist ministers can sing under A panorama of the Holy Land from the region of Mount Gerizim.

Adventist Party in Petra R. In Roman times an amphitheatre was carved out of the rock at Petra, and here Number 38 we sat and sang and prayed at closing Sabbath vespers. Good of the Romans to build it for us The country in which Petra is located was first inhabited by the Horites or Horims. In later years the Edomites built their capital on one of the rocky crags of Petra it towered high above our camp and took one and a half hours to climb, called Selah.

This stronghold was spoken of by the prophets and was captured in war by King Amaziah of Judah. At the foot of Selah lies a basin-shaped valley about one mile across, which is the site of Nabataean and Roman Petra. This site was extensively occupied for 1, years from B. The heyday of its influence was in the first centuries B. It is amazing how a city of 50, could be carved so largely from the natural rock.

Tombs and temples, shops and dwellings were made in this manner. One afternoon we climbed for an hour to see a well-preserved "high place" where sacrifices, sometimes human, were offered. Another climb brought us to the so-called "monastery"; really the ruins of a pagan temple.

The rock colouring is fantastic and beautiful, with shades of pink and yellow and blue and grey and predominantly red, laid down in strata of unique design. The Nabataeans controlled Damascus in the days of Paul. When the spice trade began to follow the easier Red Sea route to Europe, Petra declined until it was finally lost, not to be rediscovered until the early nineteenth century by Burkhardt.

Wrote the prophet "Thy terribleness hath deceived thee, and the pride of thine heart, 0 thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, that boldest the height of the hill though thou shouldest make thy rest as high as the eagle, I will bring thee down from thence, saith the Lord. Also Edom shall be a desolation every one that goeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss at the plagues thereof.

Sable Meets the Prince of Peace C. We want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our Sabbath school members who have given so faithfully on the two thirteenth Sabbaths of this year. Our Sabbath school offerings in '7 are showing a very, very fine gain. Lange, the division Sabbath School secretary, writes us a letter to tell' us of the onward progress of the message in that field.

In his last letter he has shared with us a very interesting experience which we want to share with our Sabbath school members in the Australasian Division.

There are a number of Christians in this city. The attendance at the effort was good, and there were many good interests. Near the close of the effort a number of copies of the book, "Our Day in the Light of Prophecy," in the Marathi language, were distributed as gift-books to those who had attended the meetings regularly. Sable, head deacon of the prominent church in the city of Aurangabad, was very much opposed to Seventh-day Adventists. He worked hard trying to oppose the effort. He warned the members of his church against the Adventists, and tried in many ways to keep his people from attending.

When Mr. Sable learned of the book distribution he was furious. He quickly visited the homes of the people in the city and demanded all the 'heretical' books. He collected every copy of the book, took them to his church yard, built a fire and burned the booksbooks containing the living messageto ashes. In spite of the opposition, and in spite of the burning of the message, many people continued to attend. A good number were interested, and some were baptized in due course of time. When he had his tent nearly ready, he learned that Mr. Sable was still active in anti-Adventist propaganda.

Having heard that Mr. Sable owned some furniture suitable for the platform of the tent, Brother Moses visited him and asked him if he would be willing to rent his furniture for use in the tent. Being a business manMr.

Sable is a contractor and eager to get more money, he gladly rented his furniture to Brother Moses. Sable to attend the opening meet- ing of the effort. Sable did attend the meetingpossibly just to please his new customer who had rented his furniture. But the Lord had a purpose yes, a purpose, to bring Mr. Sable to the fold. Sable was very pleased with the message he heard that night. I may have burdens hard to bear, But ever in my dreams I see a sight of loveliness, A tree-top full of gold, Of gum-tips shining in the sun A vision to behold. There's wealth untold in every bud, And tucked in every tree A message from a song-bird's throat To set each captive free.

He was so surprised to hear an Adventist preacher give a real message from the Bible. Brother Moses, of course, was very happy, and never reminded him of the burning of the books. One day Mr. He was eager to read the book he once burned. Yes, his desire was granted, and soon Mr. Sable was reading every word in the book. When he finished reading the book, he confessed his sins and gave his heart fully to the Lord. It was the happy privilege of Brother Moses to baptize Mr. He found Brother Sable, now a deacon of the Adventist church there, active in soul-winning work.

He has donated a piece of land to the mission in which to build a house of God. Not only that, he had brought six members of his former flock, thoroughly instructed in the message, ready for baptism. I am sure that our Sabbath school members in the Australasian Division will be happy to support God's work in the Southern Asia Division this quarter with their prayers and a liberal offering on the thirteenth Sabbath.

Thanking you again for your faithfulness, and wishing all our Sabbath school members God's richest blessings. Grants to Adventist Institutions From the U. Public Relations News Letter, "Tabulator," we take this amazing list of grants to Adventist institutions made by public bodies "Recent grants from foundations and private estates have been made to Adventist institutions, totalling well over three million dollars.

From the Ford Foundation grants were made to the denominations colleges as follows La Sierra, ,; Pacific Union, ,; Washington, ,; Emmanuel, ,; Union, ,; Southern, 98,; Walla Walla, , Emmanuel Missionary College also received a grant of 10, from the National Science Foundation for research in mathematics. The College of Medical Evangelists has received a grant of 1,, from the Ford Foundation in addition to grants and gifts from other sources which in the first three months of passed , ROLLO A secluded alpine valley on Australia's roof-top was the setting for what may be the highest Sabbath school yet conducted in our continent.

From the rocky crest of Mount Sunrise at 5, feet hundreds of square miles of snow-clad mountains and valleys stood out in crystalline wonder as far as the eye could see. To the south the blizzard-swept peaks of The Perisher and The Paralyzer challenged us over a thousand feet above. A dying blizzard even then was tearing a snowy crest from the high ridges and flinging it far into the warming sky like the fringe of a giant's shawl.

But below our ski-bound feet lay Happy Valley, its floor traversed by a winding brook carving its cool way through deep snow. Sometimes frozen over, sometimes breaking loose in sparkling splendour, it danced its way between the weird and beautiful ice forms that flanked its sides. The icy winds had left skavla on the Plains of Heaven. These scours are dangerous to skiers. Even in the exquisite beauty of the icy sun-crust and rime there is trouble for those who would take the journey without caution.

Our valley temple can be reached by ski-ing through the Gates of Heaven, and so long as you leave The Devil's Stair Case well on the left you may safely and silently glide over the soft snow to our rendezvous. On the Sabbath morning while a blizzard tore at the peaks above, five skiers gathered in the sheltered valley to worship the God of all beauty and peace. Brethren Purnell, Wilton, and Coombes of the Sanitarium staff answered the questions in order.

The pastor found his sermon illustrations at hand as he spoke. As each delicate six-pointed flake softly paused, Job's words seemed to say again "Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow" But the great lesson was found in the Psalms "Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. It even used its obstacle to shape itself into forms of grace and beauty.

What was this substance God so often used as a simile Some rare compound No, just simple water vapour using adverse conditions to good effect. And so, "though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow," because "where sin abounded, grace did much more abound. As the last echoes of the old hymn, "Whiter than Snow," returned down the slopes the click of ski bindings and stocks announced the close of one of the most inspirational worships we had ever enjoyed. As we glided home, far up the mountain through the russet-toned tips of the stunted snow gums we could see where The Gates of Heaven opened out to The Plains of Heaven, and Mount Sunrise garbed in purest white seemed like a healing physician to our resting souls.

Ringwood Pathfinder Day R. After the usual morning meetings most members went by car and truck to the Basin Adventist Youth Camp, where Brother Ray Martin, assistant youth leader of the Victorian Conference, conducted an inspiring meeting. The Pathfinders and all present were challenged by the stories told of the early pioneers of the movement. If only our zeal matched the faith of our fathers, how soon the message of Christ's coming would go to all the world Even the youngest Pathfinder present received a greater vision of what we should be doing to hasten the kingdom.

Colour was added to the gathering by the uniforms of the Pathfinder leaders, counsellors, and many of the youngsters. The Dorcas ladies had gone to a lot of trouble to provide delicious hot soup, pasties, rolls, and apple pie and cream. These were sold and the proceeds went to the Pathfinder Club funds. Seven-thirty found the hall well filled with proud parents and friends who were to be the guests of the Ringwood Club. Brother Martin started the evening with a rousing song service, and Brother Will Haines acted as compere.

A brief investiture service was held, when six Pathfinders were invested for 3 progressive class work. A very impressive display of figure marching was then executed. Brother Alex O'Hara, our physical culture instructor, has trained them well, discipline being a feature of the club. A few body-building exercises followed. The club also caters for physical training. At this stage the lights were extinguished and a spot-light was thrown on the platform. The curtains rolled back and a huge television screen appeared. Our compere informed us that it was to be a Faith for Today presentation.

The announcer, Deputy-Director R. Wilson, introduced the soloist, Ray Martin, who sang "I saw one weary, sad, and worn.

The narrator, Pauline McKay, took us right into the past. We saw Captain Bates and Mr. Hall meeting on the bridge that memorable day when the conversation went like this "Hello, Captain Bates What's the. Bates' part. We saw once again the way the Lord cared for the early publishing work. The announcer then reminded us that free Bible correpondence lessons can be obtained by writing to Box , G. You see, the Pathfinder Club aims to be spiritual and educational. And so ended a very pleasant day, thanks to the members of the Ringwood Pathfinder Club, the Dorcas ladies, Ray Martin, and our guest artists.

Clinic Influence Promotes Evangelism C. Now is the time for the last warning to be given. There is a special power in the presentation of the truth at this time; but how long will it continue Only a little while. If ever there is a crisis, it is now. Decided efforts should be made to bring the message for this time prominently before the people. VI, page With this counsel burning in their hearts, the members of the Drummoyne church Sydney met for prayer in the early days of , praying that God would bless their efforts to lead others to know Him.

With the aid of volunteer helpers from other Adventist churches treatments are given four days each week. By the clinic was well known in the district. The question for was, Could this dedicated clinic service be used of the Lord to lead souls into the way of eternal life Therefore this year was set aside for fervent evangelism in conjunction with the clinic. Application was made for an evangelist to be stationed in the district, and then the church launched into their programme.

Advertising covered full-page newspaper advertisements, radio announcements, 10, handbills distributed, and personal invitations issued. One Sunday afternoon a special programme was presented to give aid to the local pensioners' amenity centre. The Mayor of Drummoyne and the president of the Rotary Club, spoke to the people present at this programme. To this large audience the invitation was extended to return in the evening for the first of a series of sacred community programmes sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

The carefully planned meetings were held Friday, Sunday afternoon, and Sunday evening. The zeal and warm friendliness of the Drummoyne church members inspired many folks to attend, which in turn increased the enthusiasm of the members. After the presentation of the Sabbath truth the attendance dropped, but new faces began to appear at church. It was noticed that the keenest of those attending the meetings were those who were receiving weekly treatment from the clinic, where the week-end subjects were enthusiastically discussed.

As the sixty-lecture series drew to a close, baptism was discussed with those who had attended, and on Sabbath afternoon, August 17, following the closing meeting, this sacred rite was administered at Stanmore church. Seven trembling but happy people united with six of the Stanmore young folk who had received instruction from Pastor R. Tudor, and entered the covenant experience of righteousness by faith in Jesus. Emotions ran high as the moist-eyed, toil-worn, heart-gladdened little group of believers rendered loving aqgistance at the ceremony.

Brother W. Morris, the missionaryminded elder of Drummoyne, thanked the brethren and sisters of Stanmore for their willing help. Elder Morris states that the church will relax and recuperate for four weeks before commencing Sunday night meetings in the sanctuary until the yearend, when it is expected that another baptism will take place. The organized ministry of Christian kindness operating in conjunction with the preaching of the Word surely brings heaven close to earth and causes the Light of life to shine upon benighted pilgrims.

He will be revealed in the same way. Wherever it acts the religion of Christ will bless. Wherever it works there is brightness. The invitation to appear on this session came as a result of earlier health work accomplished under Pastor Eric Hon's leadership, when contact was first made with Miss Del Cartwright, a leading home economist and radio television personality. Because the health promotion opened the way, Miss Cartwright always gives favourable publicity to Adventist missionaries and campaigns on her programmes.

In the fifteen minutes allotted to me it was my intention to convey the conviction that, 1. Receiving so many last-minute instructions from the floor director and the con- trol room directors caused feelings of desperate panic. Before the three cameras swung over to me I found time to look down and pray for God to control my concentration so that I would remember my instructions. I found that many people have never seen or heard of Nut Meat, and so I spotlighted this in the demonstration.

The recipe and a write-up cf the television appearance was also published in Sydney's evening paper. Miss Cartwright informed me that the advertisement I gave on Nut Meat was forth 60 a minute Afterwards the comments were overwhelming. I valued most of all the praise of the control director, who said "I could not praise it highly enough. You did everything you were told. Inquiries have come for recipes and information on Adventist living principles front both the television staff and the viewers.

Arrangements have been made for more demonstrations in the future, the next one being on September There is also a possibility that ATN will record one of my demonstrations into a 16 m. This will be a wonderful boon to our ministers who wish to educate people for right living. The money has already been donated for the cost of the film, and it now depends on the availability of the television recording unit on the specific day the demonstration is held. This is a project I am leaving to my heavenly Father's guidance.

If it is His will that the church have such a film then He will surely bring it to pass. It is so vital in breaking down prejudice and it furthers the cause in many places. If its application could be multiplied a hundredfold then the public would surely know that God has blessed us with special light for these times. Scriptures for Migrants and Visitors The British and Foreign Bible Society in Australia is especially concerned with the matter of distributing Scriptures in Australia to migrants and others who come to the country as "strangers within our gates.

At the Olympic Games. The staff of the Victorian Auxiliary made contact with the various overseas visitors living at "Olympic Village" in Melbourne. Scriptures were distributed in twenty-eight different languages, with a total circulation of copies. To Hungarian Refugees. The Bible Society organization in Australia has been alerted to the opportunity of providing Scriptures to those who have so recently come out of Hungary to find refuge in Australia. There are special problems in this matter, but a distribution is being effected.

Isolated but encouraging reports are coming to hand of a spiritual blessing and of an awakening coming to some of these people. New Australians in Wollongong and District. A special effort was conducted at Wollongong by the N. By a gracious gesture on the part of the owner, a shop, with a foot frontage was made available to the society for several weeks.

The shop was on Wollongong's main street. Scriptures in various languages were displayed. As the days went into weeks, people of twenty-eight nationalities other than British visited this depot. Some portions were sold in Chinese and Maltese. This special effort was then carried on to the Wollongong Show for three days. In all, there were sold in shop and show Scriptures, of which were in languages other than English. The diary of this depot includes the following paragraph "Each day there were definite opportunities for beginning personal evangelism with individuals of many languages through the printed Word, and this often resulted in the sale of Scriptures.

I went out and spoke to them and invited them in to see and handle the most precious Word of the Living God in their own language. They were Italians, and I opened up an Italian Bible at Acts 13 38, 39 and 1 John 5 and asked them to read those and other wondrous words of grace, mercy, and life, until one of them said, 'I'll have that book' and he gladly purchased an Italian Bible, with the result that another another young Italian came along the following night and purchased one, too. Yet Thou dost Understand a worker's day. There's work to see to, clothes to press, and shoes to shine.

A lesson needing final preparation, And washing swinging still upon the line. Do help me plan my time aright and give My weary fingers skill and strength anew. Perhaps someone has more than she can do; 0 give me eyes awake that I may see And lend a hand to help her through. Do grant when the bell to worship calls, That I, kneeling with Thy dear ones to pray, May hear Thy voice in soft tones sweetly tell "Welcome, welcome to My Sabbath rest Thou hast made thy preparation well.

Dymock of the Greater Sydney Conference My prospect was interested right from the beginning of my presentation of the "Modern Medical Counsellor," expressing several times how she really would like to possess such a valuable book in her home; but she was sorry she could not place an order, as her husband insisted that she purchase nothing without his approval and consent. The lady apologized for taking up my time and I assured her it would give me great pleasure to meet her husband and so give him the opportunity to see the book at a convenient time.

An appointment was made for 4. Arriving with a prayer on my lips, I noticed the lady's countenance change from cheerfulness to disappointment. She was sorry I had come because her husband had gone to bed, having been on all-night duty, and she assured me she really felt there was very little chance of her ordering the book.

I changed the subject to the bountiful rains we had had, and with undaunted enthusiasm produced a copy of "Stories from God's Book," which resulted in an easy sale. In the process of adjusting my brief case to prepare to leave, a voice called from the bedroom "Wait a minute I will come out and see what your book is like. Seating himself he began to take notice of my canvass, but halfway through my presentation he looked up and said "You're no go-getter Your conversation and sales talk to my wife made me get out of bed, get dressed, and come out to see the book for myself.

You know, we get a continuous stream of salesmen for refrigerators, washing machines, 'IV sets, and other gadgets. I tell them 'Nothing doing,' and if I did buy it would be around the local shopping centre. Give him 5 15s. Stewart kindly shares with us a letter written to him on August 15 by Sister L. Bartlett of Mt. Hagen, New Guinea. We love every moment of it here at Hagen. We have more than patients now. Yeatts are a wonderful couple, and Doctor gives himself entirely to his work. His unselfish ministry has an effect on the station, and I believe we shall see many souls in the kingdom because of it.

She is helping the native teacher at the school, and quite a few of the village children are attending. Some of them are bright little souls, and you should hear them stand up and repeat the memory verses and doctrinal texts which they are taught in school. He is about twelve years of age. His soul is really on fire with the Adventist message, and every Sabbath he comes in and gets a picture roll to tell the story of Jesus in his village. He knows all the Bible stories and tells them quite well.

Dupi also gets a picture roll and goes to his village on Sabbath. This woman was really impressed with the spirit of our boys. She said to me one day, 'You know I've never seen such consecrated natives as those you have in your denomination. She will attend church in Wahroonga one Sabbath. During the past six years it has been my privilege to visit our people in the Iberian Peninsula on a number of occasions.

Their courage and steadfastness have always impressed me. Apostasies are few and far between. At one of these meetings I met the pioneer who for many years has laboured in this country as our first Spanish ordained ministerPastor Pedro Sanz. Pastor Sans is now eighty-one, and has been retired for some years, but he is still active on his small farm to help support the church.

Financially, as well as by his personal ministry, he is giving his remaining strength to the cause of God. Recently Brother Sanz brought a gift of 60, pesetas to the treasurer. This represented his savings from his sustentation allowance and from his small farm. This is more than 1, U. Sister Sanz has been his faithful companion during all these years. Pastor Daniel Sanz, the son, is in charge of the churches in Barcelona. The grandson, Daniel junior, represents the fifth generation of Adventist believers in Europe, being the great-great-grandson of one of our first converts, a Waldensian in the Piedmont Valley, who accepted the Adventist faith under the preaching of a Polish minister, Pastor M.

Czechowski, in , Here are stalwarts of the faith who have seen the church grow from its humble beginnings in to a member- ship today of more than 1, baptized believers. We were glad to see many strong young men and women in our churches in Spain. Our brethren asked me to convey their greetings and love to their fellow believers in all parts of the world.

God has at various times, unbeknown to the individuals involved, arranged events to fulfil His eternal purpose. When reading Japanese history the other evening I was greatly impressed by this fact. The Christian missionary movement in Japan, begun in by the Jesuits when St. Francis Xavier arrived on Kyushu, the southernmost of Japan's four main islands, developed so rapidly that after thirty years there were some churches in the country. In addition to the common people, numbers of the feudal lords also became Christians.

At first persuasive, later coercive as their power grew, the Jesuit priests were finally suspected of political intrigue and were ordered to leave the country. Even their purely religious teachings had cut squarely across those of the Japanese state, so that strong measures were taken to ensure the uprooting of this foreign sect. When, instead of leaving, the Jesuits scattered throughout Japan, placing themselves under the protection of various Christian feudal lords, the spirit of persecution was thoroughly aroused.

In six Franciscans, three Jesuits, and several other Christians were taken to Nagasaki and there crucified. Twenty years later the death sentence awaited every Roman priest or friar discovered in Japan. The years and witnessed the greatest number of Catholic martyrs suffering for their faith, and a massacre fifteen years later ended the history of the Portuguese and Spanish mission in Japan. After that, the foreign religion was slowly but steadily stamped out of visible existence. It has been estimated that during the ninety years it had been tolerated, Christianity claimed a half million adherents in Japan.

The feudal government, however, judged the foreign sect by its fruits. In Europe it had been a ceaseless cause of disorders, wars, persecutions, and atrocities, and in Japan similarly it had fomented great disturbances, had instigated political intrigues, and had wrought almost immeasurable mischief. The reaction to this misery and destruction was a natural onethe adoption of a policy of complete isolation.

After expelling all Roman priests or missionaries from the country and forcing her own people either to give up their faith or be killed, the Japanese Government decided to shut off Japan from the rest of the world. Commerce with foreign countries was almost completely suppressed. In fact, for any Japanese to leave Japan was a capital offence, and though one should succeed in getting away, he was to be put to death upon his return. Because it was forbidden to construct ships capable of long voyages, all those exceeding dimensions fixed by the government were broken up.

In these ways Japan sought to make sure of excluding foreign influences. That was in the 's. With such conditions prevailing in this island nation, how could earth hope for the fulfilment of Matt.
