Gospel Guardian Tell-Al- Gram

William E. Wallace — News Editor

FROM JESSE M. KELLEY, 1511, Lufkin, Texas 75901

"With this issue of the Gospel Guardian I am again printing the paper. Since November, brother Wallace has been burdened with this responsibility due to my surgery and convalescence. It has been a great burden on him and I appreciate his kindness and consideration in graciously taking over my responsibility during this time. He has done an excellent job.

"I appreciate, also, the many cards, letters, and words of encouragement from brethren everywhere during my illness. I was surprised at the many cards and letters received from brethren. I hope I can be worthy of your trust, confidence and concern.

"My surgeon tells me that I am now "Good as new." I certainly hope so!"

Elvis Bozarth In Hospital:

As of March 4, Elvis Bozarth was in a Cleveland, Ohio hospital being treated for a heart ailment.

Terry L. Cluff:

"I moved to Sparks, Nevada the first of September, 1970, and so far the first four months have been wonderful to me. Bro. Norton Dye who I followed here in Sparks told me I would find even though the area is famous for its gambling casinos that there are many honest souls seeking for the truth, and it has been just like he said, in the first four months we have had 3 baptisms, two restored and two identified. We are having three gospel meetings this year, Jan. 11-17 with Dan S. Shipley of Prescott, Arizona, May 10 — 16 with Robert Turner of Burnet, Texas and W. L. Wharton of San Antonio, Texas in November. This is the only sound church in this area, so when traveling through or visiting the Reno Area stop in and worship with us. 12th & "D" Street, Sparks, Nevada?'

NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS MEETING — Mound and Starr, March 22-28. Bob Owen of Florida College speaking.

PREACHER NEEDED: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Support needed. Contact James A. Wilsford, 901 Main Street, Conway, S. C. 29526.

"CHRISTIAN UNITY FORUM" in Indianapolis, Indiana at the Farmer's Building, April 29, 30 and May 1, 1971.

The forum brings together a number of brethren from various groups related to the 19th century Restoration Movement in a limited fellowship of study and discussion.

Charles Gentry To Japan:

"After months of prayerful consideration and much study of the situation, I have decided to accept the challenge of the Lord's work in Japan. I have discussed the work with brothers W. C. Hinton, Jr., Robert Nichols and Sewell Hall, all who have a first hand knowledge of the work in that area.

"There are but few faithful Christians in that country. In Nagoya, a city about the size of Detroit, Michigan, there are only twelve members of the Lord's body. This is where I have decided to move with my family in August.

"Japan has a population equal to one-half that of the United States and to my knowledge there is not a faithful gospel preacher in that part of the world. There are millions that know nothing about our God. I have been privileged to read letters from brethren over there begging for consideration in our prayers that someone might come and help spread the Gospel in that land.

"We are making plans to leave in August for at least three years' work there. In order to carry out this work we need first of all, prayers and second your financial help. If you brethren are not able to make commitments to our monthly support in this work, then please consider helping with our traveling expenses. We beg of you, give this privilege your sincere, prayerful consideration. We look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience." - Charles Gentry, 3602 Rush Place, Hobart, Indiana, 46342.
