News Briefs

From a recent letter by George G. Pennock, who is making plans to go to Nigeria, I give the following:

"Upon returning from my February trip, I had received so much favorable response from brethren that it looked as though our needs would be taken care of without any further appeals. I was hesitant to write you at that time, for fear that I would be guilty of appealing for funds unnecessarily, and perhaps rob other worthy areas of much needed support. But alas, such favorable reception has developed into so little help. After two months, this favorable reception has faded into the past, and I am forced to face a hard fact. If we are to enter Nigeria this July 4th, I must again devote my energies to raising money, and much more than a favourable reception must be forthcoming. As a result of our extensive travels in February, one donation was made to the travel fund, and one pledge of $50.00 a month was received. For this and all other assistance I am humbly grateful. God has been good to us and many brethren have been most generous.

There is little need to extol the virtues of the Nigerian work to most brethren. The success of this work is generally known. It is sufficient to say that there is no area in the world today where people in comparable numbers have flocked to the banner of truth. Many, many thousands have been baptized, though the ancient gospel in its apostolic purity has been preached among the Nigerian people for a little more than ten years. Yet the surface of this great potential has barely been scratched. In the western region a number of large cities lay all but untouched by the influence of New Testament Christianity. Several of these have populations exceeding one hundred thousand, and Ibadan has a population of more than half a million."

In a bulletin, brother Pennock states he needs $1,920 additional travel funds. He also needs $230 more per month in regular support and $100 per month for a work fund, (tracts, interpreters, etc.) If you can help in any way, contact him at the following address: George Pennock, 1702 Davitt Street, Sault Ste.
