It has been quite a treat to have the need of sleeping under a blan ket for almost two weeks dur ing the month of August. The last two nights have been quite warm, and now after having had some rain in the neighbor hood the air is refreshed and some cooler. We look forward to a good winter season, with the usual mild weather, for the most part. Ours was a good time last , evening as we had a good visit with Mr. and Mrs. Chester Bagg and family. They were able to spend just a short time here so we took advantage of their presence and, together with a few old friends, gather ed at Encanto Park so that others, too, might be able to see Chester and Mary. They are on their way, this morning, to their home in St. Jacob, Illi nois. Mr. DePew arrived home last week and was present with us on Wednesday evening and on the Lord’s Day. He said he was glad to get back here to enjoy the summer weather here. On Thursday morning of last week, twenty-five boys of the Junior and Intermediate classes went by bus to the Alli son Steel Mfg. Co. plant to be conducted on a tour of this great factory. This firm tools, builds and fabricates all types of structural steel products, and is known to have one of the largest machine shops in the west. In process of manu facture and preparation for shipment, among other things, were great sections of steel bridgework to be used in the Queen Creek bridge, being built near Superior, Arizona, enormous water gates to be used in the construction of a dam in Mexico, and many truck beds for all styles of trucking. After this fine educational tour the boys went to Encanto Park, in Phoenix, for their picnic. Then on last evening, the class of Junior girls, taught by Mrs. Morrison, (about fifteen) went also in the white chapel bus for a picnic outing at En canto Park. Since school time is close at hand, we want to have our summer picnics and out ings before fall, as the days are beginning to be noticeably shorter. On Monday evening the Christian C. B.’s went on a treasure hunt. The group of boys led by Jimmy Parry, was the winning side, while those led by Wayne Baker were too Beverly Rae Clay Phoenix, Arizona Dorothy Katherene Clay Phoenix, Arizona Herbert William Clay Phoenix, Arizona Herbert William Clay, Jr. Phoenix, Arizona Billy Joe Friend Phoenix, Arizona Dorothy Helen Friend Phoenix, Arizona Nancy Lee Hall Phoenix, Arizona Florence Hill Phoenix, Arizona James George Hill Phoenix, Arizona Linda Gail Morrison * Phoenix, Arizona Ethel Marie Stump Phoenix, Arizona Howard Waldermar Stump Phoenix, Arizona Wayne Howard Stump Phoenix, Arizona Linda Lane Wade Phoenix, Arizona BAPTISMS The following named applicants have been baptized by Triune Immersion by Elder Leland Barton at Zion Mountain View Chapel, Sunnyslope, Phoenix, Arizona.

Those consecrated are Susan Paulette Perry Phoenix, Arizona Sheryln Jean Hall Phoenix, Arizona slow in getting t6 the place of the treasure. They all ended up at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Stump where they, to gether with the men in charge, were treated with fine refresh ments. Announcement was made that next Monday would bring a surprise treat for them. We are always glad to hear of those who are taking their places in the Lord’s work. Whether it be as the doorkeep er, teacher, usher, preacher, janitor, or guard, the thing that counts is the faithfulness with which the duty is discharged. “—but a faithful man who can find?” Prov. 20:6b. “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much;—” Luke 16:10 “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” I Cor. 4:2. They were on their way home from an extended trip to the west. On Sunday evening, about 100 gathered here at the cha pel for a pot-luck fellowship family supper. Mr. Morrison gave the count as 92 lined up to pass by the laden table, cov ered with many dishes of fine food. Later we gathered in the chapel for a program. This ser vice was under the leadership of the young people. Special music, hymn and chorus sing ing, an object lesson, Scripture reading and pictures on the life of Joseph were included in the program. We were very glad to have several new ones pres ent for this time of fellowship. We are expecting to have Elder and Mrs. Barker visit us next Saturday and Sunday. They are in California this week, with Overseer Robinson. I May God help us to grasp this truth day by day. Heating the testimonies of others to this fact, and reading what others are experiencing is a source of help to each one of God’s children. I was reading the letter written by the Rev. Gerald F. Lee which appeared in the August issue of “The Zulu & Basutoland Missionary” telling of his experience with the demon possessed maid. Ger ry has experienced something that we must all probably face at one time or another in the work of the Lord. We must come to recognize the presence, of demons in human beings. We must, also, claim the power of God over the Devil and his ser vants. Then last evening, the boys of the Christmas CB’s, at the close of their meeting had a marshmallow roast by the fire [ side in front of the chapel. This letter may appear in the last issue of the Theocrat. We certainly thank Overseer Min tern and Mr. Huth for their co operation in printing these lit tle news reports. We look for ward to sending in the articles to the “Zion-Benton News” which, we expect will be pub lished the middle of Septem ber. Thank you for your interest and prayers for the work here. We would be glad to hear from some of the readers of these news items. If you have any request or suggestion, feel free to drop a line to us. Leland Barton, Elder in Charge. 915 E.
