Dow Wilson, Bunavista Church of Christ, Borger, Texas, May 31: "Our work continues to grow and have brighter prospect for the future with working and cooperating elders and deacons. Since the first of the year we have had 15 to be baptized and about 25 confessions of sin. Of this number, there were five baptized and 16 confessions of sin during an excellent meeting with Brother W. S. Boyett preaching. We are supporting Brother Ernest Walker in Merrillan, Wisconsin. During July and the first of August the church here will send me to Wisconsin and Illinois for two mission meetings. Our Bible school for the summer is scheduled for August 16-21."

W. C. Anderson, Rosiclare, Illinois, June 1: "After living here three and one-half years I shall move to Scottsville, Kentucky in July and succeed Max Ogden. Eugene Pigg will move from Hickman, Kentucky to Rosiclare and succeed me."

Charles Elledge Hill, 2928 Dunford, Fort Worth, Texas, June 2: "I am in a good meeting with the church in Decatur, Texas. Brother R. L. Roberts, Sr., is the faithful preacher of the gospel for this church. It is good to be associated with a man of many years of experience in the Lord's work. The work at Mitchell Blvd. in Fort Worth continues to grow. We have had fourteen additions in the past three weeks. Our meeting and Vacation Bible School are scheduled for June 20-27. Brother Chester M. Hill will do the preaching and help with the school. Also Brother Hood Wilkins will help in the school. We look forward to a good meeting and a successful stool."

W. T. Pruett, Florence, Alabama, June 2: "Brother V. P. Black of Mobile, Alabama, has just closed a very fine meeting with the East Florence Church of Christ. It was necessary to use extra chairs to take care of the large crowds that came every night. Brother Black is truly a powerful preacher, neither afraid nor ashamed to preach the truth. There were twenty four responses to the invitation. Nineteen were baptized. Brother Roy E. Cogdill will be with us next year. Brother Black will return in 1957."

Bryan Vinson, 634 W. Cottage, Houston, Texas: Last Lord's Day we had the very pleasant and unusual experience of baptizing three elderly ladies, sisters, into Christ. From early childhood they had been Methodists. To witness three sisters, all of advanced age, and long held in the throes of denominationalism, thus enter into the liberty provided by Christ was a most thrilling experience for me. I thought it worthy, therefore, of reporting so that others might rejoice with us."
