PRESBYTERIES.
(Continued from page 11)
a warm welcome from Western Texas
Presbytery.
Owing to the small attendance and
the general conditions which prevail
in the Presbytery, the sessions of this
Presbytery continued through only
one and one-half days. Presbytery ad
journed to meet in the First church,
San Antonio, on September 30th at
2:30 P. M.
The Presbytery met at the appoint
ed time and place with eight minis
ters and one ruling elder present.
Calls for the pastoral services of
Rev. E. B. Paisley from McAllen and
Rev. R. P. Cribble from Mercedes
were found in order and placed in
their hands. They having accepted
the calls, Presbytery appointed com
missions to conduct the installations
at such time as may be satisfactory
to all parties.
The Home Mission Committee was
instructed to do all in its power to
assist the churches which are suffer
ing from the recent storm. Rockport,
Arkansas Pass and Corpus Christi
were the greatest sufferers. The
Rockport church was carried about
150 feet from its foundation and bad
ly damaged. On account of the great
loss of property among the members
of these and other churches, many
will not be able to meet their pledges
to the churches, hence Western Texas
Presbytery is facing a deficit for this
year. But with faith in God and with
assurance that Ho will help those who
need, we will press on with renewed
efTort.
