good sisters and friends who have been so kind and tous Curing every trying and grateful to ev ery 4ne you who have helped to keep the Messenger either with your offerings and times We wonder if the Messenger should and go to our knees to talk to our Father about and He gives us the as surance that the work of the Messenger is not finished Along comes hundreds of letters which in part read like this The Messenger must live on The Messenger must not stop The Messenger is a feast to my and I cant do without it The Messenger is like being in a revival TKe Messenger keeps me encouraged to go I have it to encourage me The Messenger was the means of me receiving the baptism I like the Messenger because of its un compromising stand for the truth and That is only a few of the many encour aging thoughts in letters we re ceive and we feel that if our ef forts will prove a blessing to a few souls and keep them encour aged to press on and the encour agement will keep them from losing their souls we have done a giteat thing for We are not in the least dis although last weeks business was next to the poorest in several but it seems like it has brought us closer to God and we feel that God

had the income that Stinsons I dont wish you did because or at least most of would not put up with it very Es pecially if you had to the burdens and persecutions that I have bear and have some longtongued gossiper going a round telling that we are getting rich when we are paying out ev ery month more than we take ill things Some may think there is no expense ning a business and because a

cent that is spent is going for In the first ulace we have interest 4o pay which is getting to no little next we have to pay insurance to pro tect our creditors and taxes to which all told amounts to per not counting any thing in the way of buying to keep the work If it does some people any good to lie I never could see where the benfit There are a lot of preachers as going to have to give an account at the judgment how they are knock ing the or any gam ng they are welcome to it but I want to say right her that God has stood by the Messenger and nev er has failed it yet and for 14 years the mailing list has con tinued to till the past six months when so many were out of work and did not have the money tospend for Just because we are putting out 400 less than we did does not discourage because we are not for nearly every paper in the country is in the same Weve got a pretty good mailing list so dont you were only getting We only consider it the miraculous hand of God over
