Preaching In Nebraska

William C. Sexton

February 7th, I preached for the congregation meeting at 1802 Jackson Street in Beatrice, Nebraska. These brethren are small in number, but they know the truth and are determined to stand for it. They are meeting in the basement of brother R. C. Richardson's house. These brethren need some one to move there and work with them. Any one interested should write brother Richardson. I urge any brethren in that state who are concerned about standing for the pure work of God, to meet and worship with these brethren; study the problems that are facing God's people today. These brethren are asking men and women in that area to, "prove all things; hold fast that which is good." (I Thess. 5:21). They meet for their midweek service Tuesday night at 7:00. They would appreciate any one coming and investigating the things they preach and practice. Beatrice is some 50 miles from Lincoln, and there seems to be a few there who would stand for the truth.

I would like to hear from any sound brethren in the following areas: North West Missouri; North East Kansas; South East Nebraska; and South West Iowa. There must be some brethren in these areas who love the Lord and are aware of the many innovations being brought in to disturb and disrupt God's people, who are courageous enough to stand up and oppose such.

I stand ready to assist any small group of the Lord's people in these areas. I could hold some short meetings this spring and summer, or conduct some Bible Studies. I shall give authority for what I teach and practice, and call for Bible authority for all that is done religiously. I challenge all who are concerned about going to heaven: do you have the courage to ask men to OBEY THE LORD? Are you willing to earn the right to call Christ "Lord, Lord... (Lk. 6:46)? He says to do all in His NAME. (Col. 3:17)

The congregation at 10th and Lincoln here in St. Joseph is having good attendance in '67. We expect this to continue, and to see men and women obey their Lord in baptism, and others grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord.

November 27 through December 2nd last year, I preached in a meeting for the congregation meeting at 1031 3rd Ave. in Grinnell, Iowa. These brethren stand for the truth on Institutionalism and Centralized Control. They have experienced some very disturbing times over the last few years. There seems to be some very sincere and dedicated brethren there. They are looking for a sound man to work with them. They can partially support a man, but he would have to get some outside help. As far as I know there is only one other group in the state standing opposed to the innovations of our day. This would be a HARD field, but perhaps very fruitful after awhile.
