Sister Ficklin is survived by her husband, by a brother in Owingsville, and by his children. She is lamented by countless numbers of the Lord's people who knew her faithful life of service in the Lord's family.

An Appeal

Clyde Strickland is preaching for the Southside church in Jacksonville, Texas. His total support has been $595 per month. Out of this he must pay his rent, utilities, and support his family of wife and five school-age children. He also is paying for a radio broadcast each week. In January he is losing $200 per month support. He needs this $200 now added to his support plus at least $50 more per month. Is there not one, two, or three congregations who will help him now? He is worthy of support. I have known him for several years and have the greatest confidence in him. You may contact him: 710 Forth Worth Street, Jacksonville, Texas.
