Since my last letter I have made my first itinerating trip down Into my own territory, and attended my first meeting of the Mexican Presby tery. Mr. Shelby and I spent fifteen days down in my field, traveling on horseback through a region that for twelve years had not had a visit from a missionary or ordained native work er. We had a hearty welcome from the people, and found things very quiet and peaceful, with no serious show of fanaticism. Two nights we Blept on the ground out in the heart of the mountains, but felt perfectly safe. Sixty-five children Were bap tized on the trip, three members re ceived and thirteen meetings held, with an average attendance of over sixty-five. We found two new school houses just built for mission schools, and four churches planned or being built without a single cent of aid from the mission. Tlacotpec is the center of this dis trict that had been so long without the visit of a missionary, and Is a nice little town of about 1,000 peo ple, situated in the heart of the Sierra Madres, a day and a half from the railroad. Here we plan to hold an institute for a week or ten days im mediately following our annual mis sion meeting in January, and give these people who have been so long without training and instruction a real feast of good things. Several missionaries and native workers will be on the program, and this will con sist of lectures and training classes in the morning, and part of the af ternoon, with supervised recreation part of the time, and evangelistic preaching by one of our best trained young native ministers at night. We expect to draw people from five or six other places around Tlacotpec to this institute. The recent meeting of the Presby tery of the South was held at a lit tle village near Zitacuaro, Mr. H. L. Ross" station. Mr. Ross says this is the best evangelized section he knows anything about in all Mexico, and It was an inspiration and an encourage ment to see the work of that part of the field. This work came to us from the Northern Presbyterians, and has been ably carried on by Mr. Ross. It is furnishing the leading number of our boys at^d girls for San Angel and Coyoacan. This section of Michoacan is certainly a beautiful country. It was a privilege to be at Presby tery. The brethren were amusing at times. For example, it was rather amusing to one raised in the conser vative old Presbytery of Mecklenburg to see the Moderator and Stated Clerk of Presbytery both eating candy dur ing important business discussions. A prominent characteristic of the Mexl-4 can ? much talk with little said ? caused Presbytery to last from Thurs day morning until Tuesday afternoon. Still there was much to make our hearts rejoice in the spirit of the workers, and the progress of work as shown by the reports of different fields, and these when compared with the reports of a year before, showed genuine cause for thanksgiving. Two splendidly trained young men were licensed, and this helps to fill what the mission agrees is the most cry ing need of the Mexico Mission to day ? more and better trained native workers. You see, our mission has hcen in this field for only a very few years, and when we moved from the North we left a splendidly organ ized Presbytery, which is now self supporting, and naturally most of our workers stayed there. Here many of the native workers had suffered ship wreck of their faith during the revo lution, and no others were in train ing to take their places. Thus the supply nearly failed during the years of revolution. We have some excel lent young fellows in training, but we must have more schools through out our territory to prepare these workers for our more advanced schools, and train young men for the ministry and young women for teach ers in our mission schools. Sr. Ezekiel Fernandez, Stated Clerk of Presbytery, and pastor at Toluca, preached a sermon on Stewardship in the Zitacuaro church on Saturday night, and several of the missionaries agree that it was the finest sermon they ever heard on Stewardship b5 any one. At the close forty stood up, pledging themselves to give more to the church, and twenty-three came down and gave in their names, pledg ing themselves to become tithers. Sr. Fernandez is doing some fine con structive work in the Presbytery. He ridicules the idea so many Mexicans have, preachers and people both, that the mission should do everything for the native church. He tells them the Mexican church is like a young man thirty years old, strong of body and well, but whose mother has to carry him everywhere he goes. On my itinerating trip I spent a few days in our future liame of Chll pancingo. I am very much pleased with the place and the prospects we have for the work there. We have a fine young native pastor there, and a Sunday school of eighty-five, with preaching services drawing over one hundred. We plan to move down in the fall.
