Mission farmer helps lepers By CHRIS STEWART Herald Staff Writer It takes an expert administrator to successfully manage acres of wheat and vegetables, especially if the farm houses Ethiopia's biggest leprosy treatment centre. Gordon Creighton of Picture Butte has the non-salaried position He's as missionary managing the Sudan Interior Mission's Rift Valley farm in Shashamane, 150 miles south of Addis Abada. Mr. Creighton doubles as a general handyman, while hiw wife Norma serves as bookkeeper. The payroll includes 400 to 500 lepers (depending on the Wages arer 50 per week. Housing is pro- vided. The farm houses two hospitals, two clinics, a TB ward, elementary school, houses for leprosy patients, 200 native dwellings, a triplex, duplex, seven single family homes, a Bible school, two churches and farm buildings. The unique operation (the only other farm to compare with it is operated by Catholics in Rhodesia) is a mix- ture of mechanization and hand labor. After tractors prepare the soil, seed- ing is done by hand. Representatives from the World Health League and Oxfam, study the farm's successful operation during frequent visits. The ideal growing conditions, 85 degrees in the shade with 50 inches of annual rainfall, produces two annual bumper crops. Produce is trucked daily to Addis Ababa market, with enough left over to supply neighbor- ing mission stations. Mr. Creighton turned electrician overnight when he first landed at Shashamane. Since none of the farm dwellings had electric switches, he undertook to install them despite the fact he had never hooked two electric wires together before reaching Africa. He served as Mr. Fix-it repairing roofs, floors, steps and foundations, all methods which helped put the farm on a paying basis. Today farm income covers the cost of providing leprosy treatment. Ac- tual medication costs are met by the Ethiopian government Employment is provided for lepers living on or off the compound. "We keep a lot of lepers on for psychological benefits because we don't want them to have to revert to Mr. Creighton explained. "Some can't do very much. They are disfigured from the disease and may are left maimed. Some have had leprosy for 20 years and have to take medication all their lives. It gener- ally takes from two to 10 years to arrest it. But nobody actually dies from leprosy Generally other dis- eases such as tuberculosis and mal- nutrition cause their deaths." Mr. Creighton says various forms of missionary work are necessary if the gospel is to spread throughout the world, and be heheves operating a leprosy farm is one of them. Graduates of the Peace River Bible School in Sexsmith, the Creighton family including three children has resided at Picture Butte during fur- lough. They plan to return to manage the Shashamane farm on May 6. Throat-troubled preacher now 'spokesman for God' By GEORGE W. CORNELL NEW YORK (AP) A farm-reared businessman and preacher who once nearly lost his voice is the new "spokes- man for God" in a church whose once-regional impact has become worldwide. "We've had marvellous says Spencer Kimball, who is taking over as president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and is considered its chief prophet, seer and channel of divine revelation. The pulpit-seasoned President Kimball was at one time rendered almost speechless. "I preached myself into trouble." he says, recalling his vigorous platform style that preceded a throat tumor for which surgery in 1957 left him vocally limited. But the duskiness is gone now and the tones are again firm. A relaxed, five-foot-six man who became 79 March 28, he was formally sustained as the top authority of the world's Mormons at a solemn SPENCER KIMBALL assembly April 6 in Salt Lake City. Utah. He is the 12th head of the church, founded 144 years ago in the United States. He was ordained president, a life office, under the church's seniority system, succeeding the late Harold Lee, who died in December. The new president oversees a- fast-expanding religious organization that in a single decade has pushed out of its middle-American mold to become a global community of 3.3 million members. World church "Everything we do and think now is on an international Kimball said in an interview here. "We're no longer a little provincial group in Utah or even just in the United States. We're a world church now, of many lands and tongues." The number of Mormons outside the U.S. has soared 300 per cent in 10 years, to changing the church's once nearly uniform constituency of educated, economically self-sufficient people to a diverse, mixed body including many poor. Kimball pointed out, however, that the two continents of America are coriFidered in Mormon teaching as the setting of a ''new Israel" from which God's message is to be spread to the world. "America will always be the he said. Concerning the church's strongly patriotic tradition of support for United States gov- ernment policies and avoidance of political criticism, he said this is in keeping with the church's "spirit of upholding and blessing." As head of a church whose over-all membership doubled since 1960 while many denomi- nations declined in member- ship. Kimball said he hopes to stimulate still greater mission efforts m the U.S. and abroad. Missionaries "Our future mission task is to move into more lands and to get more deeply into them." he said. The church has 18.000 young people serving as missionaries, contributing two years of their time and expenses. Half of them are working outside the U.S With the church now in- cluding many races, including Orientals, Mexicans, Indians, Spanish-speaking South" Americans and a small sprinkling of blacks, Kimball was asked if this might aiter a frequently questioned exclusion of blacks from the church priesthood. "The day might come when they would be given the priest- hcod, but that day has net come he said. "Should the day come, it will be a matter of revelation. Before we change any important policy, it has to be through a revelation from the Lord The policy is based on a verse in the Mormons' Book of Abraham, which church founder Joseph Smith translated from papri obtained in Egypt. The verse describes the Egyptians' pharoah as a descendant of Noah's son. Ham, "a lineage by which he could not have the right of priesthood." The new president says the church includes several thou- sand black members However, they are the only race excluded from advancement into the church's priesthood of lay ministers. All other male members are expected to become priests, although Kimball noted that many whites don't qualify for it because of lapses in church obligations For 30 years Kimball was a member of the church's Council of 12, its ruling body considered successors to Jesus' apostles. His grandfather had been a member of the church's first Council of 12, appointed by founder Smith in 1835 BEREAN CHRISTADELPHIANS Street South Service CHRIST RISE OR IS IT ONLY AN W.
