Ul'TH. iintcsT city m. 1:. 1 nritrn Miri:. Our revival meeting has come to :i close, after four wieks of hard work. The cliiirch has been greatly hlussid In thu meet lug, and God's people aiu rejoicing In thu uplift which they have had, Sinners have been con verted, and unite a number have united with thu church, Wu hopu to be a better and stronger church now with so many more Joining us, both old and young. Wu naturally expect our Sunday school and Junior League to grow now with so much moru material on hand, We also want to have a Sen ior Kpworth League organized as soon as possible, so that our young peoplu can have a place to grow up, and can have an active part in the Lord s work. For this great work, with all of Its departments growing as they are, wu need a new church building, or else the building which wu already have enlarged. It seems to be the Lord's will for us to do something. The pastor Is praying for such an awak ening on the part of the church people that will cause us to "get busy" on thu Lord's house. Would that God would send us the message that He sent to His people by thu mouth of Haggal In olden time. Let every reader of these lines who Is Interested In church building turn to the Hook of Haggal. It Is the third book from the last In thu Old Testament; It has Just two chapters In it; read It through seven times, and llnd out God's attltudu In church building, and also llnd out what Is the "Desire of All Nations, fJ:7); it Is not "Tho Coming of thu Messiah," as somo think, but it Is what thu Lord has been here talking about. Thuy have sown much, and have brought In (harvested) little; eat, but have not enough; drink, and are not tilled; earn wages, and It Is gone before they realize It, etc., (1:5-7). Let us build the Lord's house, the sliver is Ills, and the gold Is ills, and the glory of the latter house shall be greater than that of COTTEN the former, (2rt !'). The pastor wishes to thank the people for their faithfulness and good attention, sympathy and prayers dur ing the revival meeting. Let's nut let thu revival die out In our hearts, but keep the lire kindled In our own hearts, and It will spread wherever we go. Let all of our people attend the meeting now going on In the Christian church, as much as possi ble; we arc Indebted to them for the help they gavu us, and the Interest they showed In our meetings; remem ber souls are at stake and wo must do what wo can for their salvation wherever we are.
