News Briefs

J. R. Snell, 1114 State, Laurel, Mississippi: "On March 1, 1964, I moved to Laurel, Mississippi, to begin work with the South Laurel congregation. In doing so I became the first full time preacher for this church. There is one other church, liberal, in this city of 30,000 of about 100 members. For some two years the faithful brethren have met in rented quarters being assisted by various ones. The 7th Street church in Meridian has from the beginning been a source of encouragement and assistance with bro. A. C. Grider and others there aiding in the teaching program.

In this work I am enjoying the fellowship of several good churches: namely, 7th Street church, Meridian, Miss. Greggton, Longview, Tens; College View, Florence, Ala.; Berea, Huntsville, Ala.; Russellville, Ala.; 12th Street, Bowling Green, Ky.; and Shelbyville Mills, Shelbyville, Tenn.

Our attendance at all services is averaging about 20 and our contribution about $40 per week.

In Butler, Mo., Billy W. Moore of Harrison, Arkansas, will succeed me about July 1. Bill Moore is a capable man. The church there is fortunate to have him come."
