church met at the church on Monday
afternoon Oct. 13.
We considered ourselves very
fortunate in having Miss Bonnie Ray,
a returned missionary from China
The regular monthly program was
omitted. The time usually given to

The message that was brought to
ns by Miss Ray was not only inter*
eating but it inspired us to do more
and greater work for the spread of
the Gospel and God’s kingdom. The
work of our missionaries on the for
eign fields was made very clear to us.

After the meeting delicious refresh
! ments were served and a pleasant s6-
cial hour was enjoyed.
