The Truth About Southern
Presbyterian Foreign Missions The nib of the situation is this: We have a $750,000 work abroad now. No less will adequately sustain the work as it now is. The Assembly has recognized this fact for years, and at Birmingham in 1917 once more called the church to come at the earliest moment to a mil lion a year for Foreign Missions. The debt of $73,426 must be paid, but it is not good business to pay the debt and not change the condition that caused it. After all our trim ming of the present work, trimming that has se riously crippled the present work, it has not been possible to escape a yearly addition to the debt. We are able. We have the money. What we need is, all together, Sunday-schools, Women's Societies, Young People's Societies, and every con gregation and individual, to give week by week. Pastors, Women, Laymen, pray for this work. Rise and give. Speak to others and induce them to give. The church must not fail her Lord now. Have you given all you can? Give now. Send checks to * EDWIN F. WILLIS, Treasurer, P. O.
