"WARNING TO FORMER SUPPORTERS OF JOSE OLIVAS: It has been brought to my attention by Fidel Cisneros, preacher for the church in Sonoyta, as well as recently at Caborca, Sonora, Mexico, that the widow of Jose Olivas, recently deceased, has withdrawn herself from the local church there.
It is also my understanding that she expected to continue to receive the full support that her husband had received before his death, and failing to do so, has held it against the local church there at Caborca, who had been supporting her. She has taken the hymn books, Bibles, and other church property and has moved into a "smaller place" as she puts it, in her correspondence with her supporters. No doubt, she intends to "start Her church" so she can be fully supported. Until I can investigate further, it is my recommendation that no more assistance be sent her. Fidel Cisneros, local Gospel preacher is fully capable of dealing with the problem on the local level, but he needs your cooperation. Thanks. If you wish to write him in Spanish, please do so. Write: Fidel Cisneros, Box 241, Lukeville, Arizona, U.S.A."
