News Briefs

Bob Tuten of Warner Robins, Georgia, is making plans to go to Bergen, Norway, this summer. He still needs support for his travel fund and monthly support. He lacks $355.00 per month in regular support and $1420.00 in his travel fund. Any help individuals or churches could extend would be appreciated. For further information on this work we suggest you write to him: Bob Tuten, 109 Marilyn Drive, Warner Robins, Georgia.

Cecil B. Douthitt, P. O. Box 1005, High Springs, Fla., April 4, 1953. The eight day meeting with the Garden City Church, Savannah, Georgia, closed last night. Brother C. L. McLean is the very able and efficient preacher for this congregation. My next meeting will be with brother Alton Elliott and the Trilacoochee Church, Trilby, Florida.

Very good progress is being made in the construction of our meeting house here at Santa Fe Hills near High Springs. Brother Harold Dowdy of Jacksonville has been of great help to us in our building program.

James C. Jones, 1010 Taylor Avenue, Richmond 25, Va.

The Forest Hill church conducted a series of Gospel Meetings, April 7-14, with Connie W. Adams of Orlando, Fla., doing the preaching. We had non-members present for every service and the lessons were filled with the power of the Gospel. Two precious souls obeyed the gospel. The work here is progressing nicely. In addition to "Lest We Forget," which we presently mail to 1100 members of the church mainly in this area, dealing with problems in the church, we also have started publishing another paper entitled "The Faith," which is sent to 100 families here in Richmond, who are not Christians. Response from this has been good. Our attendance on Lord' day mornings runs from 85 to 80, and the contribution averages $188.00 per week. After three and a half years with the church here, I shall be traveling, with my family, to Stavanger. Norway, to preach the Gospel. We sail on June 7th. A trip of 9,000 miles earlier this year raised all but $55 per month in monthly support — we have $445 promised and need to have $500 per month; $2145 has been promised toward our travel fund, and $355 more is needed. If there are churches willing to assist either in travel fund or monthly support, please contact me at the above address. We already have our passports, and one way tickets on the boat. No sponsoring church involved in this. References and detailed information concerning the work in Stavanger will be sent to any who desire to help.
