News Briefs

The Pleasant Valley church in Wichita, Kansas, has determined to stand upon the truth of God in opposition to the many liberal tendencies that are being propagated by the "liberal" brethren. Gorin Rutherford formerly worked with this congregation and assisted them in determining to stand for the truth. Don Willis recently moved to Wichita from San Antonio, Texas. If any readers should know of other people in the Wichita area that are willing to stand for the truth, kindly send their name and address to: Donald Willis, 3317 N. Amidon, Wichita, Kansas, 87204.

The church in West Point, Mississippi, is about a year old. Because of liberalism in the old congregation, it was necessary to start a new congregation to be able to stand for the truth.

Moore is the local preacher.
